Draw a Road Map

The Power of Number 3

        Three is great. One and two are too small and do not look interesting. Anything greater than 3 is too big. It can easily overload people active memory.

Arrange Your Presentation using the Power of Three

        Break your presentation into three acts. Break down your product into three features. Anything with three components is interesting and easy to digest.

        If reporters are around they will write down intently. If you miss one, they would even remind you that you told them the first and the second. What’s the third one?
        So, arrange your presentation into three or four categories. Fill each category with personal, facts, examples, analogies, metaphors, and third-party endorsements.

Book or Audiobooks?

          Personally, I prefer audiobooks. It's fun, and I can listen when I'm doing something else. It also makes other activities (e.g., jogging) a lot more fun. For more detail about audiobooks, please read [this post].     
          There is one more reason that may encourage you to go for the audiobook version. You can get it now for FREE. Audible offers you a free trial for 14 days. Even if you get the book and cancel the subscription right away (so that you don't have to pay), you can keep the book. And, don't worry if you lost the audiobook file. Just log into audible.com. You can keep downloading the over and over again.

    About the summary: It takes time to finish up a book. And, when you do, sometimes, you want to review what you learn from the book. If you do not make  notes as you read, you might have to go through the book once again. This can be time-consuming when you are dealing with a book. But you can still flip through the book and locate what you are looking for.

However, when the material is an audiobook, it is extremely hard to locate a specific part of content. Most likely you will have to listen to the entire audiobook once again.

This book summary will help solve the pain of having to go through the book all over again.

I am leaving out the details of the books. Most books have interesting examples and case studies, not included here. Reading the original book would be much more entertaining and enlightening. If you like the summary, you may want to get the original from the source below.
