This is a helpful book to learn clear visual communication of text, especially for people that work primarily with text or data documents

Not a bad book to improve document design skills. I didn't totally agree with some ideas regarding graphs and presentations though.

If you don't want to read the best books about presentations (Reynolds, Duarte), document design (Jean-Luc Doumont), graphs (Few) or general basic design (R. Williams) this can be a good start.

Some really good ideas here - Moon shows how to present information intelligibly and appropriately, taking (many) potshots at unclear graphs, meandering text and 'death by bullet-point'.

His "Words in Tables" focus will be very familiar to anyone who has done Information Mapping training - which is no bad thing.

I think the coverage is rather better for reports and handouts than presentations - some of his ideas make for rather wordy slides, but that's a minor cavill.

Some parts of the books are excellent, most of them are repetitive
