Review qThe practical lessons in The Sketchnote Workbook make it easy and fun for anyone to leverage visual note taking to help them remember more, communicate better, and develop ideas more completely.q - Todd Henry, author of Die Empty qIf you want to succeed in capturing and communicating your ideas, you need to read this book. Because it's not merely a book: It's a blueprint for a new way of thinking, and it's fantastically useful.q - Daniel Coyle, The New York Times best-selling author of The Talent Code and The Little Book of Talent qMike has created a resource that will inspire anyone to take their doodling to a new level and begin using sketchnoting in every aspect of their lives. After reading this book, I know my recipe cards and travel journals will never look the same again!q - C.C. Chapman, author of Amazing Things Will Happen qMike Rohde wants you to understand a simple idea: Drawing aids thinking. Or, even better, drawing IS thinking.

This book, as its predecessor, The Sketchnote Handbook, will not just make you a better artist, it'll make you a better thinker.q - Alberto Cairo, author of The Functional Art qI present information as narrated visuals so Mike's approach makes a lot of sense to me.
