The Minto Pyramid Principle book. The central theme of the book talks about the ‘Pyramid Principle’ which advocates that ideas in writing should always form a pyramid under a single thought. The single thought is the answer to the main question. Underneath the single thought, you are supposed to group and summarize the next level of supporting ideas and arguments. Then, for each supporting idea or argument, break that further into more ideas or arguments until you have formed a pyramid.

In 1973 I published a set of six booklets called "The Pyramid Principle" that talked about a new way of tackling the problem of unclear report writing, particularly in consulting reports. It said, in effect, that clear writing was easy to recognize because it had a clear pyramidal structure, ·while unclear writing always deviated from that structure. The ideas within the pyramid relate in a limited number of logical ways (up, down, and sideways), making it possible to define general rules about them.

A once-hot and now unappreciated classic, one of the best how-to writing guides for technical and persuasive works in any language. Minto wove together the requirements that logic imposes on the structure and format of argumentative and technical written works. If you try the Minto techniques you will find that not only is your writing more persuasive, but that her techniques transform how you express yourself verbally, and you become much more effective in person. It is a shame that this is no longer in print; it really is best to highlight the heck out of this book.

Very impressed. Bought book to help make written business proposals and e-mails more logical and clear. First section of book did not disappoint. Very we'll written, very logical and made perfect sense. I'm not stating that the pyramid process is simple, but Minto's introduction to it is. I wish I had been taught this back in college. It would have saved me, and my co-workers, a lot of time and frustration.

I'd recommend this to anyone who works professionally and must use written communication to make a point.

Really helpful if you are like me in that you have several ideas and struggle to get them out in an easy way.

That is a good book which is opened with expectation and closed in profit. ~ Amos Bronson Alcott ~

The item pictured is not the 2010 edition as the product headline states as of 2016-07-30, it is actually the revised 2009 edition according to the flyleaf. As compared to the current version, this edition is missing 3 chapters and 2 appendices.

The 2010 in the product headline was a primary factor in my purchase, as I did the research and found that the 2010 was the latest edition.

I'll update this review if the headline gets fixed.

Whether problem solving in a technical or non-technical area, or trying to structure a presentation or instruction, this book gets it. Logical without lording it over anyone. If you want to improve any communication, this is the book for you.

The best book I've read about how to organize your thoughts on paper. I wish I had read this before starting my consulting practice.
Great communication concept! from McKensey
