I'm writing a presentation about the systems of the body, and I'm talking about these issues very shortly. So, my question is if I can write in the first page of the presentation the following sentence:

                               Body systems 

                            Taking a short view 

                             By Jonathan Berman

I don't know how it sounds like, because I'm not English native speaker, and I would like to present a suitable title, that doesn't sound weird.

    using brief instead of short would be more appropriate – sotondolphin Nov 3 '15 at 8:14

    brief is also a verb. Body Systems briefed by Jonathan – Maulik V Nov 3 '15 at 9:53

    By the way, you would use "does" instead of "do" in your question because "the sentence" is singular. – MackTuesday Nov 3 '15 at 19:16

    "Short view" is often a synonym of "inability to see far" or "refusal to see the whole picture". "A brief overview" is probably what you want. – Victor Bazarov Nov 4 '15 at 12:55

    This question isn't about a sentence. It's about a two-part title and a byline. The two-part style seems appropriate, but I have to recommend placing a colon at the end of the first part. – Gary Botnovcan Nov 4 '15 at 13:58
