There is no such thing as a mindless doodle.

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.

Doodling has led to countless breakthroughs in science, technology, medicine, architecture, literature, and art. And as Brown proves in this inspiring, empowering book, it can help all of us think and do better in whatever fields we pursue.

With passion and wit, Brown guides you from the basic Doodle all the way to the formidable 'Infodoodle' - the tight integration of words, numbers, images, and shapes that craft and display higher-level thinking.

She'll teach you how to doodle any object, concept, or system imaginable.

She'll show you how to shift habitual thinking patterns to get cognitive breakthroughs.

She'll help you transform boring text into displays that can engage any audience.

And she'll give you the courage to take up your pen, pencil, or whiteboard marker, without shame, judgment, or apology.

As Brown writes in the Doodle Revolutionary's Manifesto, 'No longer will the Doodle live in a house of ill repute. No longer will simple visual language be underestimated, underused, and misunderstood. Forevermore, we acknowledge the Doodle as a tool for immersive learning and we wield its power deliberately and without restriction, in any learning environment we see fit.'

Doodlers of the world, unite! The power of the pen awaits you.

'Why do we insist on representing our world using 26 letters rather than an infinity of pictures? Sunni Brown shows us how to doodle our way to better thinking.

So get out your writing sticks and prepare to doodle!' Daniel H. Pink, author of To Sell Is Human and Drive

Thankfully, The Doodle Revolution gives all of us the ability to take the leap.' Jane McGonigal, author of Reality Is Broken

'Doodles come straight from the Unconscious. That's partly why they work. Sunni did a beautiful job of shining a light on visual language.' Steven Pressfield, author of The War of Art and The Legend of Bagger Vance
