Influence - Science and Practice - The Comic by Robert B. Cialdini
The idea of providing an illustrated graphic-novel style version of a non-fiction book is a very good one. I like the idea of being able to review an illustrated summary of the key points of a such a book. That is why I gave this book five stars.

A point I wish to make to the creator of this book is that the use of illustrations the context of which (a commando-war scenario in this case) is far removed from the reality of readers and has little to do with the gist of the book is an unhelpful distraction.

5.0 out of 5 stars So glad I read this., March 28 2014

Why didn't someone write this book long ago!? Very enlightening book. Everyone should read it.

Making a graphic novel version of a non-fiction, instructional book does not sound, at first, like a good idea. But it is!

I am really enjoying the audible version of "What Got You Here Won't Get You There"; it's a fantastic book. I decided to get the Kindle version to facilitate making notes. I saw the graphic novel version and, despite my intial misgivings, curiosity got the better of me and I bought it instead of the regular, text version.

It's great. It's a really fun, and even more efficient, way to review the material!

Someone should get a promotion for coming up with this idea.
