It's backwards!

Let me explain. Grab any mass market magazine off the top of your toilet ... let's take Car and Driver, for example. How is the magazine arranged?

1) Table of contents
2) Letters from readers
3) News (interspersed with letters, usually)
4) Regular columns
5) Major feature articles
6) Minor feature articles

You'll find that the vast majority mass market magazine is ordered the same.

Now, grab that copy of Planning, and see how it's arranged.

1) Table of contents
2) Minor feature articles
3) Major feature articles
4) News
5) Letters from readers

Planning is bass ackwards! It's also missing recurring columns, something you'll find in just about every other major mass market publication.

My solution for fixing Planning? Reverse it!
