Do You Get the Point... across?

Milo Frank's book How to Get Your Point Across in 30 Seconds or Less, a heavy tome of 1500 pages....

No, just kidding. Frank's book is svelte (12 chapters, each on average 9 pages, with a 4 page intro). Easy reading that packs a punch. Know what you're after, know what your audience is after, take an approach, hook your reader's attention, present your subject concisely, and finally ask for it, whatever it is that you're after.

There, now you don't have to read the first half of the book.

I invite you, the reader, to use this book to criticize my style... and your own style.
