Readings in Communication

"Ex-Libris" part VI: Communication

Part 6 of my "ex-libris" of a Data Scientist is now available. This one is about communication.
When I started this series, I introduced this diagram.

I also quoted Johh Tukey:
"Far better an approximate answer to the right question, which is often vague, than an exact answer to the wrong question, which can always be made precise" 

This is quite important since a data science project has to start with a question and come up with an answer.

But how do we communicate at the time of formulating the question? How about at the time of providing an answer? By any means necessary.

Do check out the full article with the list of books:
