We could all produce amazingly clear work that has incredible impact -- if only we knew how. This book shows you how.

And your work will impress the people that matter and get the results you want.
It guides you through the most effective ways of using all forms of presenting information - tables, charts, slides, flowcharts, etc.
Moon also introduces the new WiT (Words in Tables) approach to give impact to your message on all documents and slides. "I love Jon's work. His tips are hugely useful, his WiT fantastic and ground-breaking, and his book essential reading.
