Book Review: I wish I could do Visio like Frank or Hany

Now if you are like me. you have Microsoft Visio open almost as much as you have Microsoft work.  But if you are like me, your diagrams may be correct, but they do not have that wow factor.

If you have Duncan and Franks new book, you will have noticed those fantastic clock face time line diagrams explaining the timescales surrounding HA failover and failures.

well could I figure out how they were done, could I heck as like, so what was I to do, 

Well obviously I did what every good techie does, I consulted the great oracle in the either Mr G.oogle.  and here I found a real gem of a site.http://visguy.com/ hosted by Chris Hoth one of Microsoft’s Visio MVPs. 

Now Chris has written a book on Visio 2010 so I thought I’ll have a piece of that. Well it arrived today and looking through the book there on page 184 was exactly what I was looking for “A radial Array of Arrows”.  this little gem was worth the purchase price to me on its own,  I have the feeling that this little book will become of of those heavily used favourites that almost fall apart with use.

The book has also showed me how to create layers.

So now I have the starting blocks,  now I have to make them look as good 🙂
