Review of THE DOODLE REVOLUTION by Sunni Browne

Title: The Doodle Revolution
Author: Sunni Browne
Publisher: Portfolio Hardcover
What It's About: The Doodle Revolution is about the inherent creativity and ability to think visually that we all experience at a young age. Sunni Browne uncovers the many benefits of the practice of doodling and why doodling should be encouraged.
Why I Read It: I watched Sunni Browne's Ted Talk on doodling, and I was intrigued by the insights she provided in just a short time. When I found out she wrote a whole book on the concept she outlined in her Ted Talk, I knew I wanted to read it. 
What I Liked About It: What Browne reveals about the benefits of visual communication is compelling. I've always loved to draw, and with young children, I enjoy encouraging my kids to be creative and think creatively. The Doodle Revolution is a sweeping argument for why people should practice doodling. She shows how it helps with communication and how it helps with our thinking processes. The book includes doodles throughout to illustrate as well as exercises for the reader to practice their own doodling skills. This is really fun book and one that is beneficial to the communication conversation.
