Last week I completed the manuscript for my next book. It is a great feeling to have it done.
Unfolding the Napkin: The Complete Workbook for Solving Complex Problems with Simple Pictures will be available in January, 2010. Like The Back of the Napkin, it will be published by Adrian Zackheim at Penguin Portfolio. Courtney Young is editing.
The Workbook covers the visual thinking concepts, tools, and rules I introduced in The Back of the Napkin, but this time I present everything through guided do-it-yourself exercises. I structured the book as a complete four-day visual-thinking seminar, taking readers step-by-step from "I can't draw" to "Here is the picture I drew that I think will save the world."
That's a big leap. But I believe it's doable. Having spent the last seven months fine-tuning every exercise, I know it is. I can't wait for you to see it for yourself.
I'll keep you posted on details as we get closer to the publication date.
