Description

This gorgeous, fully illustrated handbook tells the story of sketchnotes--why and how you can use them to capture your thinking visually, remember key information more clearly, and share what you've captured with others. Author Mike Rohde shows you how to incorporate sketchnoting techniques into your note-taking process--regardless of your artistic abilities--to help you better process the information that you are hearing and seeing through drawing, and to actually have fun taking notes.

The Sketchnote Handbook explains and illustrates practical sketchnote techniques for taking visual notes at your own pace as well as in real time during meetings and events. Rohde also addresses most people's fear of drawing by showing, step-by-step, how to quickly draw people, faces, type, and simple objects for effective and fast sketchnoting. The book looks like a peek into the author's private sketchnote journal, but it functions like a beginner's guide to sketchnoting with easy-to-follow instructions for drawing out your notes that will leave you itching to attend a meeting just so you can draw about it.

Mike's fun, illustrative style energizes you to pick up a pen and sketchnote!" -Nancy Duarte, CEO Duarte Inc, best-selling author of Resonate and Slide:ology

"This book is not really a book. It's a tool kit for learning a new and better way of capturing and understanding information, and it's perfectly aligned with the way our brains actually work. If you're a student, or a teacher, or a businessperson, this book has the potential to change the way you learn, and the way you think." -Daniel Coyle, The New York Times best-selling author of The Talent Code and The Little Book of Talent
