Graphics Appendix Please

Hi here's hoping the authors are reading this, as I've purchased the audiobook I'm unable to view the graphics/ logic trees referenced in the hardcopy - could you please create a downloadable pdf file? Audible offers downloadable pdfs for other titles however this one is yet to have one available for readers.. hope you can help..

without the PDF with charts the audio is useless..

the book really needs a PDF with the charts, frameworks and examples... I don't understand why it doesn't come with a simple PDF with that info

No company PDF

This is a very visual book as they say in the book but there is no accompanying PDF with any kind of truth or diagrams that they try to describe it makes his book nearly impossible to understand and it makes me question the authors ability to problem solve is they didn’t foresee this and wondering how well this book really is for problem-solving very disappointed.

Include Graphic PDF Please

Listeners miss out on a huge portion of value that they paid for.
The content is great, and very convenient to listen to on the move.
I have a big problem when I want to go back and refer to the graphics mentioned.
The listeners miss out on a huge chunk of content without being able to view the logic trees.
And it's ridiculous to expect a listener to purchase the digital/physical version to get this... please can this be sorted out as soon as possible.

90% to long

The problem with this book, as is the problem with a lot of coaching / self help books is that they feel they need to be a certain length to be credible. This book just can’t seem to get to the point, that’s if it even knows what it is. So much extra garbage crammed in here to fill the book. If you want a great and succinct book on problem solving check out “stop guessing”.

A must read, great examples and tools!

This is one of the highest impact books I’ve read. It has great structure, goes into enough depth- referencing sources if you want to dive deeper, has many examples, and simple yet robust tools...

Needs Graphic Links

I don’t understand how this book can be sold in audio format when it relies so heavily on visual graphics for which there seems no links or support.

Probably much better in print

I'm guessing the print version of this book has lots of illustrations of logic trees etc that help the reader understand, but it's really hard to get that same visualization from the audio version.

Most of the content was good, but I think this book relies on too much that can be expressed by the narrator.

The audiobook medium doesn't work

In print this book is full of tables and illustrations that help support and visualise the techniques. Whilst an attempt is made to describe those figures this book is much easier to follow in printed format.
