№3. "Visual Thinking" by Dan Roam
Have you explain something to people? And if you ever succeeded, and people understand that you want to tell them? Probably not. But do not despair, this book will be your good helper in this. You may have noticed that the images with a minimal amount you memorize faster than the huge texts. This is the whole essence of visual thinking. Man sees not only the eyes but also imagination. The day we dozens of times mentally create the images and pictures of something. Images and drawings can clearly reflect the complex concepts combine and synthesize information, they are useful to clarify and resolve the most complex issues.

  1. Vasilisa, thanks for your blurbs!
    The book on visual thinking must be really useful.
    As for your language, the first blurb is almost perfect but for a few articles and Present Simple form. But blurbs 2 and 3 ... you must have been in a hurry - they are not as good as the first one. Pay attention to articles, word order, Pr Simple, Pr Perfect.
    Anyway, despite grammar mistakes, your blurbs are among the best.
