S - simple (the idea must be stripped to its core, and the most important concepts should jump out), U - unexpected (the idea must destroy preconceived notions about something. This forces people to stop, think, and remember), C - concrete (avoid statistics, use real-world analogies), C -credible, E - emotions (information makes people think, but emotion makes them act. Appeal to emotional needs, sometimes even way up on Maslow's hierarchy), S - stories (a story gets people into paying closer attention, and feeling more connected)

Great insight and a reminders that we tend for forget, like to keep what you're communicating focused on the core of the message. The core of this book is on the first disc; the remaining discs are supplementary but still useful.
