Last night I finished reading The Back of the Napkin by Dan Roam. The My Little Black Sketchbook post line spawned from reading it. Roam writes an extremely interesting book, defining a process for visual thinking that just works… I went from not being able to easily think visually to being able to produce visual thought diagrams in a short order over the course of the book.
I will be incorporating the things I have learned from this book into a majority of my work in the future. Book analysis after the jump. I’m just going to go over the final chapter, because it’s a book that really needs to be read by anyone that is interest in visual thinking and advancing their ability to express themselves. Note: It’s not 1000 words, but it has a picture, so it is really over 1000. The book is really a must-read.
