Format: Hardcover
Definitely an useful resource for architecture or urban design students in the presentation of their studio projects or perhaps a portfolio for employment. It does give good ideas about the methods and quality of presentation although particularly aimed more for architecture school than practice I thought. But many ideas can certainly be used in practice.

However it is certainly out of date with the advent of CAD drawings and other graphic presentation tools on the PC or Mac - the book is evidently old with the publishing date so look for a newer version.

This book is really lacking in upto date, cutting edge presentation styles. There is very little to exite and inspire if you are looking for fresh innovation. It has the same style that was around at schools of architecture twenty and thirty years ago and so will not teach you any new tricks. Must try harder

i took one of the workshops offered this year at Iowa State University with Professor Linton. He gave a general lecture on Friday evening and reviewed many ideas about collecting, organizing and designing your portfolio from scratch. The lecture was also a 'warm-up' for the all day Saturday workshop to follow. I worked hard during the workshop and found him to be wonderful and supportive and with me the whole time. He enjoys working with creative concepts and tries to push you in the direction of making your presentation very unique but extremely well-organized. I was amazed at the progress i made in six hours. After that we had a critique and we discussed the future direction, especially production and development. I have so much input now. I disagree with the comments from the student from Hawaii because this book is not a how-to - its a conceptual approach. I understand he is giving us tools to make us aware of creative direction, plenty of method and materials, and arriving at your own conclusions - making your own decisions. i don't want to be told how-to. i loved it. he also told us he is changing the digital chapter in the second edition next year which will be cool to see whats added and new portfolios will be added also. next year i'm off to grad school and so i hope he puts in more work from grad students.

I found the text very complete and scholar, but the images/exemples are too old fashion or plain old. It could use a good contemporary graphic update so it could be visually inspiring.
