Book Review: The Doodle Revolution by Sunni Brown

Book: The Doodle Revolution: unlock the power to think differently
Author: Sunni Brown
Released: 2014 (hardback)
Publisher: Portfolio/ Penguin  

Where did I discover this book? 

Stephen Pressfield is the author of one of my favorite books, “The War of Art.” It is a book about fighting resistance and creating things (like books). I follow Pressfield on facebook.

He posted a picture from the Doodle Revolution by Sunni Brown that included a one-page doodle about The War of Art. I knew I had to read it. I loved this one page doodle. I thought it would be awesome if the doodle revolution book was a book of book reviews using “info-doodles” like the one about Pressfield’s book. However, the Doodle Revolution attempts to change the meaning of a doodle and teach people how to use it.

Some useful tips I discovered from author/ book:  

·         Many great people were doodlers. Some of them include U.S. Presidents: Eisenhower, Regan, LBJ, Clinton, and Kennedy.

·         Many breakthrows and discovers have been made by doodlers.

·         Doodling is not a mindless activity. It can be very mindful.

·         There are several mediums for doodling, including; kinesthetic,: jogs, walking, exercise. I’d arguing skateboarding, gymnastics, and dancing. Other mediums include: musical, visual, auditory, reading and writing.

·         Doodling can help a person to think and connect ideas.

·         Benefits of doodling includes: information regention, keeps us from losing focus.

·         It is not about the doodle. It is about thinking.

Who would enjoy this book?  

  • People who want to be more creative!
  • People who want an arguable/ legitimate excuse for doodling.


I would love to see high school or college notes in info-doodle form. I think they would be so much more interesting, easy-to-understand, and good for information retention. I did this with some of my notes from anatomy and physiology classes when I drew pictures of cells and muscles, etc.
