You can't beat Visio 2000 for general-purpose graphics work. The program rules the roost when it's time to create flow charts, technical diagrams, and any of many other kinds of pictures that can significantly increase the clarity of reports and presentations. Visio 2000 Visual Insight shows the Visio novice how to use the program productively and reveals how to create good-looking examples of the most popular kinds of business and technical graphics.
The basic idea of the Visual Insight format is that it's better to show the reader how to do something than to try to explain the process in words. So, readers get a series of one- and two-page spreads, each containing the steps to follow to achieve a particular effect. In most cases, the text of each step appears next to an image of the step being carried out--a particular dialog box or a partially completed drawing. The reader is never unsure of what he or she should be seeing. One problem is that some of the numbered steps aren't really steps at all but rather statements of things that should happen as a result of earlier steps. But don't let that stop you. It's easy to locate common tasks and quickly figure out how to accomplish them, with a minimum of time spent decoding prose. --David Wall
