Tufte describes some of the (presumably unintended)consequences of PowerPoint-think and highlights the way it has become something of a crutch for management and consultants. Pictures should tell a thousand words but Tufte illustrates why PowerPoint typically expands rather than condenses the visual display of complex material (and not so complex). Essential reading for anyone who reaches for the PowerPoint button on their laptop every time he/she wants to communicate.
