Chapter 11 – Writing and Completing Reports and Proposals

I found the entire chapter practical and helpful. I particularly liked the advice on effective visuals. I think people often substitute skill with graphics for substance in reports. I have read too many publications that contained graphs that were at best unhelpful and, often, distracting. I didn’t understand why this section did not include a reference to Edward Tufte. If only for the reader to see the impact of a good graphic image.

I also liked the chapter as a reference. Unlike emails and memos, which I compose often, I rarely write reports and proposals.

  1. Agreed. Visuals can be distracting, and even misleading, at times. I also plan on using this chapter as a reference for the few times when I am required to produce a report.
