Comment: This book is in great condition with only minor shelf wear from normal use. Downgraded to good condition because a couple of pages have very light pencil highlights (less than 10). Thanks for the view and have a great day.

Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

The purpose of this book is to demonstrate in easy, concrete steps that anyone can draw well enough to enhance his or her communication skills. Milly Sonneman takes you through initially simple and then progressively more advanced steps that can teach any person, in spite of self-doubts, how to make compelling drawings that will clarify ideas and make them more interesting. Sonneman stresses that your body already knows how to draw and teaches you how to listen to it and learn. This is a fantastic book for teachers, for people who do business presentations, and for anybody who wants to draw for the fun of it!

If you are spending 2 hours to make the perfect PowerPoint, this book gives you the confidence to make your own drawings, pictorals, and basic diagrams on any whiteboard or paper easel. I was a statitican (so you know I can't draw) but often needed to work out ideas of my own and in groups. The simple pictures learned in this book helps everyone understand the discussion that's going on. Connect words, ideas, and your audience with esy to draw colorful pictograms of your ideas.
Not sure if you can draw, the publishers sample made me get the book.

Milly has been able to show in concise, clear terms and through visual example, how easy it is to draw basic images for illustrating anything. An excellent resource for trainers, presenters and anyone designing flip charts or other graphic materials to aid in communicating a message.An excellent tie-in to the workshops that she conducts around the country.

Format: Paperback
All my 50 years I was convinced i could not draw and I was not artistic. This book proved me wrong. Quickly my intuitive mind grasped the concepts and I started drawing. Folks comment all the time how long I have been drawing. Their jaws drop when I tell them for only a year. This book's style was instrumental in making it easy to enjoy drawing.

Format: Paperback
All these reviewers are right. I opened the book and within 30 seconds i drew the first picture which looked EXACTLY like the one in the book. I have spent hundreds of dollars on books on drawing - all wasted. The beauty of this book is that every concept is applied instantly and transferred to your brain subliminally.
