When you are trying to communicate your idea or pitch your proposal it is easy to over explain it. After all, it is your baby and you want people to understand every little detail.

Brant Pinvidic a producer who has sold more than three hundred TV shows and movies, run a TV network, and ran one of the largest production companies in the world with smash hits like The Biggest Loser and Bar Rescue. He is author of the book The 3 Minute Rule (https://amzn.to/36uNAHI) and he is here to explain how and why your ideas will always go over better when you are brief and to the point,

Don is a professor at the University of California in Irvine and author of the book The Case Against Reality (https://amzn.to/2Nb2r2L). Don joins me to explain this theory which is more than just an academic exercise. There are some fascinating practical implications as well.
