    Very practical - more about facilitation, less about drawing. Perfect for visual practicioners. Full of complicated sentences, hard to read for me as non English native.

    This book convinced me that being able to communicate visually was a valuable set of skills to have, both personally and professionally, and that developing a visual language was not as difficult as than I thought. Drawing a project or a process made my mind work in a different way somehow, and brought out new perspectives, new insights that were easy to share with others. I liked the straight-forward step by step method, and the working templates you can use for meetings, roadmaps, planning, in This book convinced me that being able to communicate visually was a valuable set of skills to have, both personally and professionally, and that developing a visual language was not as difficult as than I thought. Drawing a project or a process made my mind work in a different way somehow, and brought out new perspectives, new insights that were easy to share with others. I liked the straight-forward step by step method, and the working templates you can use for meetings, roadmaps, planning, innovating, etc. You’ll be missing out if you don’t read this book.

    One of the most important skills of the future will be 'synthesis': Being able to create an overview, see how things fit together, find meaning in complexity, and convey it - and what better way than drawing it. Those who can feel the new connections in the world, and get others to "see" are the heroes of the future. Any idiot can point out a problem. We must learn to think in - and visualize - hundreds of possible solutions that can be put together in a million ways. This book shows the way.

It's fun, it's hands-on, it's the perfect gift for yourself, for your boss, co-workers, or kids. It would make my life and work as a futurist so much easier if more people mastered the art of visualization. And the world will be better for it.

    I have always made sense of work (or new learning) by drawing, using arrows to connect topics, systems, or processes, and doing it over and over again until it made sense to me. So, when someone recommended this book, I was all in. I wasn’t disappointed. We are all visual learners. Using these concepts has helped me simplify messages and provide more clarity to those I teach and work with. I haven’t tried it for team collaboration yet. But building a visual vocabulary/language is a useful skill.

    I found the concept of using drawings and pictures to drive and spark conversations/discussions, as well as to facilitate the communication and clarification of thoughts, ideas, and processes something so simple and yet, so powerful, that I want to start using it myself.

    How rich communication you could use? It goes like this: wiki like CMS, email, slack, phone, video call, face 2 face, face 2 face and drawing :) So learn to use visual language to even more improve your communication.
