Format: Paperback
This is without doubt one of the best, and most useful books I have read (and I have read many!) on the use of logic in business presentations. The book outlines a great process for structuring problems and synthesizing

complex information into a easy-to-understand story for decision makers. Linda Long is a great writer and teacher, and anyone who wants to improve their logical problem solving shoudl buy and use this book - I absolutely recommend it.

This book takes some classic logic constructs and helps the reader understand how to apply them successfully to communications. If you are looking for help in convincing someone of your point of view - in business and in your personal life - this book is for you. Great examples that really illustrate how to apply these frameworks. Very helpful - really made an impact on my communications.

Format: Paperback
In this book, Dr. Long provides readers effective methods and tools to develop their ability to structure logical arguments. The approach is simple and can easily be adapted to any context in which the reader is expected to conceptualize, formulate, articulate, and communicate thoughts in a logical and convincing manner. I first started using the book during one of Dr. Long's workshops and have referred to it frequently ever since. The book is an excellent reference for those who want to improve the way they think and the way they communicate with others - whether this is at work or in their personal lives.

There is nothing new to her book in the Communications field and her examples are not at all helpful for classroom discussions.
