There are 59 truths grouped into 13 real-life parts
When I started working on The Truth About Getting Your Point Across with Prentice Hall, I did some serious soul searching about how to approach the book to best relate to you, the busy reader who wants to get some good practical advice quickly then move on to the next item on your to-do list. I realized that, for this book to be most useful, it needed to be something you didn’t just read once then put on a shelf to forever gather dust. It needed to be something that was easy for you to pick up, get a few quick nuggets, and then apply them immediately. Because I wanted it to be personal, I exposed my own failures (and a couple of successes) to help you avoid many of the perils and pitfalls I have encountered throughout my career.
Legend has it that Ernest Hemingway was challenged by some friends to write a story in six words. Hemingway responded to the challenge with the following story: For sale: baby shoes, never worn. The story tickles the imagination. Why were the shoes never worn? Were they too small? Did the baby die? Was the baby not able to wear shoes? Any of these are plausible explanations left up to the reader’s imagination. This style of writing has a number of aliases: postcard fiction, flash fiction, micro fiction, and sudden fiction. This extreme brevity of writing directly applies in today’s micro-burst communication culture of text messages, tweets, and wall posts. Thus the inspiration for Six-Word Lessons for Project Managers.
