“In The Doodle Revolution, Sunni Brown opens our minds to the idea that we naturally possess a simple, overlooked skill of great value: the ability to doodle. It's a rare gift to be taught such a rewarding truth in so joyful and light-hearted a manner. Sunni is a creative light and an inspiring mentor.”
—Chris Anderson, TED Curator
"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. Her book will have you drawing insights on the page, not just in the margins."
—Dan Heath, co-author of Decisive, Made to Stick, and Switch
"Contrary to popular opinion, doodling is a serious endeavor. As Brown shows in this smart and accessible book, applying visual language allows you to see new dimensions of a problem -- and at times, new aspects of yourself. So get out your writing sticks and prepare to doodle!"
—Daniel H. Pink, author of To Sell is Human and Drive
“The future is filled with an ever-growing density of information, so visual literacy—the ability to think and communicate using visual language—will become an essential skill. 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
“There’s a reason why so many innovative companies use Sunni’s techniques for visual literacy, and it’s not just because they want to have fun. These methods offer consistently better thinking, and in the process deliver happiness as well.”
—Tony Hsieh, Zappos.com CEO and author of Delivering Happiness
“Doodling is not just a nervous habit. It nudges the mind to discover different angles and hidden connections. In the long run—and especially around new media—expressing oneself in raw text might not stand up in the face of artistic, spatial, and emotive text. Sunni has found a way to validate and systematize a new language that enables thinking on a whole new level.”
—Robert McKee, author of Story
“Both practical and inspiring, Brown’s book reminds readers of the revolutionary power o simplicity in an information-overloaded world. A gold mine for readers interested in learning more about the benefits of increased visual literacy.”
"Brown's defense of the doodle is convincing . . . this creative, fun book will definitely help you get your doodle on."

This book was a must for me. I used to love doodling but somehow those doodles stopped, or got ugly. Did I fall into the trap of taking my life and my self too seriously? After looking into the book description I connected with the term "visual literacy" because of two friends that are teaching that in Boone, NC although I never quite understood how that was academic enough for graduate study. Oh, was I so wrong. With our world being as loaded with images as it is, it's incredibly fascinating and useful to understand how we subconsciously understand and process this information. If harnessed, it's incredibly useful to doodle to process dense information because it encourages the mind to discover different angles and hidden connections.
Other points that I find fascinating are:
- When doodling, you tap into *all four* learning modalities at the same time (visual, auditory, kinesthetic, and tactile)
- By looking at the evolution of children's drawing worldwide, she argues that doodling is native to our species
- Her new definition of the doodle is "to make spontaneous marks to help yourself think."
Sunni Brown does an excellent job at promoting respect for the doodle, in both her TED talk and this wonderful book. I highly recommend learning more about this! I think other people who are looking for ways to use doodling in the workplace would like learning about the Synectics method for brainstorming with groups, which is described well in The Practice of Creativity: A Manual for Dynamic Group Problem-Solving.
Having fruitfully employed Sunni's "gamestorming" techniques to facilitate ideation in various workshops, I eagerly anticipated "The Doodle Revolution". I hoped it would extend my group facilitation repertoire with visual communication skills. It has turned out to be much more than that.
The first thing I noticed was an exuberant tone and dynamic style that kept me engaged. The next thing I noticed is that the book is filled with, well, doodles! Sunni practices what she preaches and employs her own methods as a communication device in the book, which effectively reinforces the methodology.
In addition to myriad doodles, there are activities and games throughout the book that guide the reader through a developmental process of visual literacy that is quite enjoyable. I also found that although the book follows a logical progression, it is possible to use the early concepts right away, so I could advance at my own pace and still get immediate utility from it. In fact, being able to use the basic concepts right away seems to help build the scaffolding for the more advanced techniques that follow.
One aspect of the book I particularly appreciate is that concepts are conveyed in digestible "nuggets", and while there is certainly an ordering to the book, I enjoyed jumping around and found it easy enough to get pulled into a new section without feeling lost; though it often compelled me to jump back to previous sections to understand related concepts. Tip: If you want to know how "doodling" is defined, turn to page 11 in the book.
Finally, I found that doodling helps improve thinking. The doodle philosophy recognizes that humans have limited information processing capacities and must be selective. Capturing concepts in "infodoodles" helps practice the art of selecting only the most relevant information, which trains us to be more efficient and effective thinkers, even when we aren't doodling. So, while I found the "group infodoodle" to be a compelling device for facilitating and capturing group ideation, there is much more than that to be gained from this book by aspiring visual literates.
In a nutshell, if found this book to be fun, practical, clear, useful, and thought-provoking. Sunni Brown took a deep dive into visual literacy and emerged with an epiphany, which she has shared with the world through this book. If you are receptive, it may change the way you think.
It is fun to read, full of wonderful pictures, contains visualization models I desperately wish I'd through of (and fully plan to steal), and above all, has real heart.
It remains a "lecture" for the auditory rather than a treat for the visual learning style.
I find it refreshing to see Sunni carefully articulate how doodling can help you think more clearly and solve problems by embracing visual thinking. I loved The Doodle Revolution and would encourage anyone doing creative work to grab a copy ASAP.
