Publisher Comments:

There is NO SUCH THINGand#160;as a mindless doodle

What did Einstein, JFK, Edison, Marie Curie, and Henry Ford have in common? They were all inveterate doodlers. These powerhouse minds knew instinctively that doodling is deep thinking in disguiseand#151;a simple, accessible, and dynamite tool for innovating and solving even the stickiest problems.

Sunni Brownand#8217;s mission is to bring the power of the Doodle to the rest of us. She leads the Revolution defying all those parents, teachers, and bosses who say Stop doodling! Get serious! Grow up! She overturns misinformation about doodling, demystifies visual thinking, and shows us the power of applying our innate visual literacy.

Doodling has led to countless breakthroughs in science, technology, medicine, architecture, literature, and art. And as Brown proves in this inspiring, empowering book, it can help all of us think and do better in whatever fields we pursue.

With passion and wit, Brown guides you from the basic Doodle all the way to the formidable and#147;Infodoodleand#8221;and#151;the tight integration of words, numbers, images, and shapes that craft and display higher-level thinking.

Sheand#8217;ll teach you how to doodle any object, concept, or system imaginable.

Sheand#8217;ll show you how to shift habitual thinking patterns to get cognitive breakthroughs.

Sheand#8217;ll help you transform boring text into displays that can engage any audience.

And sheand#8217;ll give you the courage to take up your pen, pencil, or whiteboard marker, withoutand#160;shame, judgment, or apology.

As Brown writes in the Doodle Revolutionaryand#8217;s Manifesto, and#147;No longer will the Doodle live in a house of ill repute. No longer will simple visual language be underestimated, underused, and misunderstood. Forevermore, we acknowledge the Doodle as a tool for immersive learning and we wield its power deliberately and without restriction, in any learning environment we see fit.and#8221;

Doodlers of the world, unite! The power of the pen awaits you.

Synopsis:

A fearless guide to awakening your mind using simple visual language

and#160;

What do Einstein, Edison, Richard Feynman, Henry Ford, and JFK have in common? Like virtually all heavy-hitting thinkers, they looked beyond just words and numbers to get intellectual and creative insights. They actively applied a deceptively simple tool to think both smarter and faster: the doodle. And so can the rest of usand#151;zero artistic talent required.

and#160;

Visual thinking expert Sunni Brown has created The Doodle Revolution as a kick-starter guide for igniting and applying simple visual language to any challenge. The instinctive and universal act of doodling need only be unleashed in order to innovate, solve problems, and elevate cognitive performance instantly.

and#160;

With humor, wit, and a commitment to disrupting our perceptions of doodling, Brown teaches us how to:

  • Doodle any object, concept, or system imaginable.
  • Invent, innovate, and solve messy problems.
  • Transform text into a visual display that engages an audience.
  • Explain the relevance of visual literacy to leaders at work and at school.
and#160;

Despite what our culture suggests, doodling and sketching are powerful tools and they are for everyone, not just artsy types. Itand#8217;s time we recognize visual literacy as a fundamental requirement for the future.
