Think you can't draw? Wish you could? Want to make your personas and scenarios and user stories much more vivid with pictures? Now you can! Get this book! Kevin Cheng shows and tells us why comics are a wonderful way to convey the stories of our designs. And he makes it easy for even the drawing-challenged (like me) to do it. --Janice (Ginny) Redish, author, Letting Go of the Words-Writing Web Content that Works (2nd ed., 2012)
