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.
