Loved this book for its ease of understanding and the little sketches throughout which aided in getting the author’s points across. I would recommend this to anyone else who must present complex ideas to others, in an easier to digest format.

There are more than a few books on visual thinking/sketching on the market. If you want a reference on visual communication that is focused specifically on product design, I highly recommend Presto Sketching. Why? 1) It’s deeply researched. You’ll get insights on why and how to sketch for better product design (and some great references to learn more) 2) There’s a visual dictionary that will show you how to easily sketch business concepts and metaphors. 3) The book includes a set of valuable visual frameworks that will help you bring clarity to common collaboration and design problems. I can see this book being particularly helpful and relevant to product/project managers and designers.

There are a small number of worthy books on the topic of sketchnoting, each taking a slightly different approach and each reflecting the experience and personality of the author. This is one of those books.In it you will find the humorous side of Ben Crothers as he slips in jokes and comments. You also find Ben’s skill as a sketchnote and teacher. The power of this book is that the author’s approach is to create what could be a legit textbook on the topic.My suggestion would be to get this book after you’ve learned some basics of sketching or, if you choose this as your first book on sketchnoting spend time slowly digesting the early chapters.

I’m not at a designer or facilitator, but I found this book engaging, practical, and entertaining. I often run brainstorming sessions with teams, so I was looking for ideas on how to run more productive and creative sessions. This book definitely provided that. But I wasn’t really prepared for the deeper aspect of the book: it really provided a framework for thinking, not just sketching. There’s a whole chapter on canvases that help provide a framework for thinking about problems. For example, there’s a section on a new take on a SWOT canvas: the general approach is the same, but the angle gives a fresh approach that’s accessible and more fun.And of course, there are some great sketching tips that are so easy to remember and apply!I highly recommend this book if you run meetings or just want some new ways to get your creative juices flowing.

I have read many books on visual thinking and this ranks as one of my favourites – it has useful guidelines on how to draw simply but the most value is in the business applications which are pragmatic and easily applicable in many business settings. The books strength is that it is not a drawing book it’s a business toolkit which can be applied with little artistic skills. Good job Ben.

Best for everyone. Loved the step by step process of building your visual language.
