Once upon a time I had been member of research team working on vocabulary within particular field of humanities. Head of the grant was forcing all the researchers to be short and effective in writing. Each of us had to produce a definition of particular term. We were not allowed to use more than 12 words. That was the time for learning - we learned how to speak and write on our topics with no "empty" words.

Larry Smith's book shows something very similar. I love it. I have learned a lot from the book because it shows possibility to be even shorter in your expressions (6 words only) + it shows how you can speak about yourself, about your life shortly and effectively.

The whole skill in both above mentioned cases is to catch the most important point of view. Really THE MOST important. You need to learn how to do it.

This is not just a great book but a great concept. Everybody should try this, express who you are in six words. And of course you can have multiple versions for your multifaceted life. I am a photographer so I wrote:

Such a quick but very interesting read! Very eye opening and makes you think both about where these students come from, as well as what you would write yourself given your experiences and background. A fabulous idea!
