Receive this message from Phil Simon

Do you ever take the time to write book reviews on Amazon? I’ve thought about it many times, but I never seemed to find the time to follow through — until I read Phil Simon’s latest book, Message Not Received: Why Business Communication is Broken and How to Fix It. The more people who read this book, the better off we will all be.

Many of Phil’s books have compelling reviews. This excerpt from a five-star review on Amazon by Jack Spain for The Visual Organization: Data Visualization, Big Data, and the Quest for Better Decisions sums up that “…we must:

  • Value and appreciate the power of speaking with data
  • Unleash the power of the data we have access to
  • Improve our ability to communicate succinctly, effectively, and with the right context on a timely basis
  • Increase the leverage of our data resources with innovative data visualization tools on the market today.”
  • Multitalented JMP colleague Melinda Theilbar, Senior Research Statistician Developer, got her own paragraph in the acknowledgements for The Visual Organization for her contributions to chapter 6, part of which you can see here, from page 122:
