    About 20 years ago I went to a meeting in SF at an advertising agency. One of the ad guys pulled out the most beautiful leather notebook I had ever seen. He then proceeded to draw pictures the entire meeting. It was my first experience with "sketchnoting" (although I doubt that term existed back then). I asked the man about it and he said it was just how his brain worked; I was fascinated. I have since added to my note taking pictures, boxes, highlights and all types of callouts to my more typical words. I find a combination of styles works best for me and keeps me more engage both during meetings and when reviewing my notes. Can't wait to get the book!

    I too am a visual learner. I wish more speakers and teachers (especially college professors) would realize that. Not everyone has a memorizing mind but yet, that is how classes are taught. Think about it -- tests are given to see how much you can memorize! I love it when someone gives a talk and has a visual to go along with it!

    Very cool! What I like the best is that he had an idea and stuck to the job and actually FINISHED the project. Very admirable, indeed!
