"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete? Cognitive scientist and public intellectual Steven Pinker urges us to step back from the gory headlines and prophecies of doom, and instead, follow the data: In seventy-five jaw-dropping graphs, Pinker shows that life, health, prosperity, safety, peace, knowledge, and happiness are on the rise.

I've seen visual practice map ideas, refresh memories, and provoke insights in many meetings involving dozens of professionals from business, government, and education. So it's a special delight to discover this collection representing the art, craft, and inspiration of visual practice from multiple perspectives.

Graphic facilitation is a powerful way for a group to come to know themselves and the work they want to do together. It is no wonder that it so quickly became a part of any good meeting, conference, or problem solving session! Drawn Together is a valuable book, timely and well thought through. It should be read and employed by all wanting to improve and accelerate the rate of change and innovation within an organization, executive team or community. The more diversity in the room, the more powerful visual imagery becomes.
- Gail Taylor, Co-Founder of MG Taylor, Inc., Founder of Tomorrow Makers, Inc.
At last! A compendium of stories, helpful approaches and mind sets that reflects the diversity, the richness of scope and the broad impact of the growing field of visual practice/visual language. Our visual practice not only encompasses 'making the invisible visible' and 'making the visible visual' through many artistic means, but also, it incorporates all the human elements of working together, listening, and inclusion that our world is crying for. The potential is unlimited. This is a must read for people who are looking for ways to make substantial change and impact in our world as a group or as an individual and who are looking for paths to go 'from my way to our way'.
- Susan Kelly, Visual Practitioner

Visual practice makes the fleeting and ephemeral nature of spoken conversation concrete. Drawings can take infinite form: brushstrokes expressing gesture, metaphors that offer common ground, maps to guide a system, and devices for reconciliation. Individuals and groups alike make these meaningful marks. Communities of thousands can access key content through the aid of images. We see our thoughts from new perspectives through visual interpretation, and we relate with fresh eyes to ourselves and others.
Visuals draw us together. They allow us to consider where we have been, who we are, and who we want to be in the future. We mark these transitions through the acts and artifacts of drawing.
Visual practice is a rich and diverse field. This anthology connects ideas and practitioners at a moment when our practice is dramatically expand- ing. Let's pause and survey the field to date: What work is being done? What questions currently guide us? Which theories inform us? Who do we serve, and what is the impact of our craft? What do we learn from our individual experience? And how do we contribute back to the greater field? Now is the moment to embrace visual thinking, practice, and facilitation as a defining technology of our time.

The field is growing and learning and these practitioners show us the possibilities beyond just scribing.
Unfortunately they saved the e-book using a different encoding so it's not properly printing the apostrophe.
Since the apostrophe is critical to comfortable reading, it makes it really difficult to properly read the book.
Amazon, Bad for you!!
I tried reading this book on my Kindle paperwhite, on the WebReader and on the PC Amazon app.... It doesn't even has the book pictures!
