    Intriguing Comic Book Designed to Improve Effectiveness and Personal Satisfaction

    SmarterComics, a prominent innovator known for turning classic and pertinent books into graphic novels (comic books), has outdone itself with Richard Koch's 80/20 Principle. Essentially, SmarterComics strips away the dense aspect of the book and delivers a comic-book version that is not only entertaining, but profusely educational. The essence of the book is intact, while the fluff has been excised. For those unfamiliar with the 80/20 Principle, it is an intriguing book that is designed to improve effectiveness and personal satisfaction. While the original catered largely to business professionals, the comic book medium opens up the doors to a unique and limitless number of visual readers. The 80/20 Principle focuses on alleviating the stresses of daily life and primarily states that, "a minority of causes, inputs, or efforts usually leads to a majority of results, outputs, or rewards." Whether one is a visual reader or simply doesn't have the time necessary to fully understand Richard Koch's original version, the 80/20 Principle from SmarterComics is a highly recommended, valuable asset for all.
