Richard Koch is a writer I have learnt a lot from over the years.
Recently he produced an almost 600 word summary of Simplify, the book he co-wote with Greg Lockwood.
His summary can be found here – richardkoch.net/blog/564-simplify-simplified.
I thought it would be an interesting exercise to produce a visually-structured summary of his text, which can be viewed via the link below.
The use of text boxes, arrows, tables and a greater number of heading levels gives an opportunity to communicate the meaning of the text in a slightly different way.
(I used to call this format a visual summary. However, since the content is still primarily focused around text, perhaps it’s more accurate to call it a visually-structured summary.)
The summary document can be viewed at this link – www.francismiller.com/simplify_summary.pdf.
