I do not want to sound ungrateful, this book was a rather good read, easy and fun, i learned many facts and book references as well, and i did appreciate two bits of infos in the appendixes.
But, it seems to me the author have started by creating a problem, or at least exaggerating it, where there was almost no problem. At least, how i see it, pictures ARE already involved everywhere. Charts, maps, graphs, are all over there. Yet the author make it seem as if our culture is only verbal, and goes from there to expose his methods and tools as something totally new, using original names for his tools (Forest, blahblahblah meter, etc)
So, and again, on a personal level, the book's real help to me was way less than what the book wants me to think. As a matter of fact, in a quick seminar last year, we were told basically the same ideas : say the essential, use graphs and plans and charts etc.
This book is a good way to remember these thoughts, but it's message could have been said in lot less of words itself.
One thing intrigued me though : the author use "she" instead of "he" when referring to any third pronoun.
