Food for thinking and writing, 25 July 2011
From a engineering background, with the limited amount of pen training this entails, the Pyramid Principle offered a good support. It outlines the purpose of writing, in any business setting, and by doing this in a logic well structured manner, Minto takes her readers from struggling to get their message across, to focusing on struggling on what that message should be.
By elevating the abstraction in your thinking to higher levels, you are able to communicate your concepts and ideas more clearly. This book teaches you how. First by focusing on the writing, and the core parts of communicating via text. And secondly by focusing on the thinking behind the writing. Why do we write this, what do we need to convey, and how do we convey it in the most clear manner.
Starting a career in management consulting this book will give great support to its readers, and serve as a good go-to-guide for how-to-write.
