Going to thrift stores is terrific fun because you never know what you’ll find. Recently, I stumbled across what is, in my experience, a unique how-to book: How to Write Effective Reports.
I know, I know… the title alone sells the book. No doubt.
But what makes How to Write Effective Reports unique — and, I suggest, brilliant — is the method it uses to teach the reader how to write effective reports. It’s like a Choose Your Own Adventure book for report writing.
Here, without further comment, are the cover and some of the first pages in the book. Enjoy… and get ready to learn how to write effective reports! (Click on the photos for larger versions.)
No author is credited. Instead, How to Write Effective Reports was “Programed by FEDERAL ELECTRIC CORPORATION, A Subsidiary of International Telephone and Telegraph Corporation.” It’s also described on the cover as “An Addison-Wesley Programed Text.”
