Unfolding the Napkin

Unfolding the Napkin
Erik Eckel recommends Dan Roam's Unfolding the Napkin, which is the follow up to his best-seller The Back of the Napkin. Erik writes, "I now apply the principles in Unfolding the Napkin every day in my IT consulting work. From basic client discovery meetings to Exchange server migration planning conferences to white board sessions scheduled with the purpose of finalizing multi-site point-to-point VPN deployments, now I'm a believer."
