Is there anyone out there who knows how to teach using simple examples?

I don't need Architectural lessons. What I do need is simple instruction with print screen or easy

no clutter pictures in "Point form eg. #1,#2,"3 etc. maybe even a few pointing arrows. "

When I do finally learn something I usally can condense it from 50 pages or more to 4 or 5 lines with a couple

of print screens, so I know it can be done.

I have bought so many books and have never seen a good one yet. Paul Aubin is not bad but he insists on teaching

with whole bulidings. When I teach if I can use one wall or one window I always try to keep it simple why is this so hard

to understand.

Sorry for the ranting but I'm pretty frustated after 30 some years in the industy and it's still the same.

If anyone knows of a good book, DVD, internet site I'd sure appreciate it.

Have a look at my blog, if you don't find what you are after there (i'm a bit slack on finding the time to update it), I do have a lot of links to peoples blogs that are kept more up to date.

I try to keep all my articles and tutorials as simple as possible.

If you have a few minutes you may want to have a look at a couple and see if the writing style is agreeable?
