An interesting new book re-energizes the saying, A Picture is Worth a Thousand Words. It's called, Going Visual : Using Images to Enhance Productivity, Decision-Making and Profits.
From Amazon.com review:
Today's technology makes it possible to use—in everyday practical business circumstances—visual tools that capture the full richness of the information you wish to convey, enabling you to communicate more completely, more efficiently, in greater detail, and with greater power of conviction than through words alone.
The book's cover is dominated by words, and one rather cryptic graphic of blue sky and clouds. Hmmmm......
Thanks for alerting me to this in your blog, Alan Reiter.
