It covers simple approaches that use basic or no technology through projects on the scale of computer games and flight simulators. The book role models content as well, written accessibly with humor, precision, interactivity, and lots of pictures. Many will also find it a useful tool to improve communication between themselves and their customers, employees, sponsors, and colleagues. As John Con#65533;, former chief learning officer of Dell Computers, suggests, Anyone who wants to lead or even succeed in our profession would do well to read this book.
