Life’s A Pitch by Roger Mavity & Stephen Bayley

This book is more interesting than the cover would suggest. The first half (by Mavity) is a straightforward “follow these steps” approach to pitching and the second half (by Bayley) is a series of looser chapters on the nature of self-presentation, self-invention, etc. Lots of interesting stuff. I posted some of my notes/scribbles to give you an idea of the contents.

Suggested under the “Sell Yourself” heading of Mike Monteiro’s reading list in Design Is A Job.
