What is The Pyramid Principle?

Finally an easy way to share your ideas and communicate clearly

Barbara Minto reveals that the mind automatically sorts information into distinctive groupings based on importance. However, if any group of ideas are arranged into a pyramid structure in the first place, not only will it save valuable time and effort to express those ideas, it will take even less effort to read and comprehend them.
