WOW, WOW, WOW.
If your job involves designing anything, or communicating information to others, then I think you need to read this book.
On this episode of Human Tech we interview Karl Fast and Stephen Anderson about their recently published book: Figure It Out: Getting from Information to Understanding.
On the episode I act like a fan girl at the beginning, but really, the book impressed me that much. It may change the way you think about thinking and how people process information. It should change the way you present and share any kind of information, whether text, visual, digital or physical.
It’s not a “quick bites” type of read. It’s fairly substantial, but it is so well written and with lots and lots of examples, that I recommend it to everyone involved in any kind of information design/communication.
