The Doodle Revolution
Unlock the Power to Think DifferentlyBook - 2015
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 disguise - a simple, accessible, and dynamite tool for innovating and solving even the stickiest problems. Sunni Brown'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. Doodlers of the world, unite! The power of the pen awaits you. 'There's a reason why so many innovative companies use Sunni's techniques for visual literacy, and it's not just because they want to have fun. These methods offer consistently better thinking and in the process deliver happiness as well.' Tony Hsieh, Zappos.com. CEO and author of Deliverying Happiness 'Brown's defense of the doodle is convincing . . . . This creative, fun book will definitely help you get your doodle on.' Success 'Why do we insist on representing our world using twenty-six letters rather than an infinity of pictures? Sunni Brown shows us how to doodle our way to better thinking. Her book will have you drawing insights on the page, not just in the margins.' Dan Heath, coauthor of Decisive , Made to Stick , and Switch 'The future is filled an ever-growing density of information, so visual literacy - the ability to think and communicate using visual language - will become an essential skill. Thankfully, The Doodle Revolution gives all of us the ability to take the leap.' Jane McGonigal, author of Reality Is Broken 'Doodling is not just a nervous habit. It nudges the mind to discover different angles and hidden connections. In the long run - and especially around new media - expressing oneself in raw text might not stand up in the face of artistic, spatial, and emotive text. Sunni has found a way to validate and systematize a new language that enables thinking on a whole new level.' Robert McKee, author of Story
