You'll discover the power of storytelling and the way to make data a pivotal point in your story. The lessons in this illuminative text are grounded in theory but made accessible through numerous real-world examples - ready for immediate application to your next graph or presentation.

Very insightful and actionable

As a management consultant, I found this book incredibly applicable to my work. The book is extremely insightful, and does a great job of laying the foundations of persuasive presentations in plain sight. I was apprehensive about an audiobook version of this book, given how much it relies on visual senses, but I found the audible version almost perfect, with the PDF attachment very easy to follow along to - something that the narration has been modified to ensure. I would highly recommend this to everyone who, like me, has had experience with storytelling with data, but lacks a concrete and replicable framework to think about how to organize stories and design visualizations for maximum impact.

Great Tutorial on presenting information

I found this useful for preparing reports, graphs, or even getting your points across in an email. It talks about presenting information in the best way so that you will be heard. It was practical and good for anyone in the corporate world.

Difficult, but worth it!

It was difficult to listen. I am sure it would have been worth to read. It is a great start in turning boring data into creative storytelling.
