Like the main book, not a lot of book for a lot of money, but still... excellent.

YOU can "just doodle." You CAN. What you draw is individual and unique to you. In a world drowning in words, a little more doodling and sketching is what we need.

The idea of this workbook is that you think you can't, but with just very little practice you will find that you CAN. I've used the idea from the previous book of leaving blanks that you can come back to, combined with the idea from this book that just draw

This one has some advanced techniques on creating sketchnotes.

But, still feel, mindmaps are far more better than sketchnotes.

This book was much better than the first book on this topic. The author gives more ideas about how Sketchnotes can be used for travel, recipes, books, movies, project planning etc. I found it to be more useful and it has some practical advice along with advanced tips. I am definitely going to give some of these a try soon.

A very worthwhile successor to Sketchnote Handbook. This one recaps Handbook and then works through a broad variety of applications for sketchnoting. I appreciate the author's willingness to showcase so many other artists' work, which opens the doors of imagination broadly for us who are finding our own way to Sketchnote in particular, but be more creative in general. ...more

A whole new sketch world.
Anja von "books and phobia"
Sketchnotes sind nun wirklich eine feine Sache. Mittlerweile kann ich sie aus meinem Privatleben nicht mehr wegdenken, muss aber trotzdem hin und wieder noch üben. Denn ja, ich gestehe, ich bin nicht gerade die Begabteste, wenn es darum geht etwas visuell umzusetzen. Was beim Zeichnen allerdings schnell in Frust ausartet, würde ich bei Sketchnotes fast schon als Spiel bezeichnen. Immerhin geht es nicht darum etwas besonders detailliert darzustellen, sondern es so zu zeichnen, das man es zumindes ...more

I felt I wasted my time reading this book. I expected more practical advice how to do better sketchnotes. There is very few of such material. Mostly author advertises applying sketchnoting approach to many different situations. I don't like books that are mostly about motivating readers to do something and I think the content here is not worth putting on paper. Even the title is misleading: there is very little of "advanced techniques", rather a lot of "use anywhere". Also, in my opinion the aut ...more

I really love the output of sketch notes. I think it captures more than words can and makes information and ideas way easier to digest. I find it a challenge to break out of just taking written notes to sketching, but the workbook has helped me get on with it. Writing sacrifices completeness for coherence while sketching sacrifices coherence for completeness. Sketchnotes have the capacity to bridge the divide creating a more complete and coherent representation of ideas than anything. This serie ...more

Good Overview and great examples

As a follow up and a workbook to the original book, it offers a quick overview of techniques followed by great examples and different applications of sketch noting.

Ну пора себе признать, что если с 5 апреля 2015 года книжка не прочитана (а это же ещё и рабочая книжка - то не изрисована), то это не моё и нет у меня настоящей мотивации к этому. Потому оставим недочитанной.

I plan on using the tools from this book to make travel sketchnotes for both business and personal trips and as well as mapping out better ways to communicate at work.

I found many helpful tips on how to organize and display information in ways I'd never thought of before. I also loved the examples throughout the book, to see how others use sketchnotes. I am especially excited to try out this method on PowerPoint slides (yep, work nerd alert).

While I can't imagine I'd use this method for general

Wonderful collection of different situations in which sketchnoting can be used. While some of those situations might not appeal to everyone, the author does an excellent job of sharing the core elements from them that sketchnoters can highlight. It is in seeing those elements that new possibilities for the personalized use of sketchnotes can be found.

I learned in the first book how to sketchnote; this book focuses on sketchnoting different types of things (food, media, travel, etc.) and is largely intuitive based on the principles of sketchnoting learned in the first book. Still a fun resource.
Zahlreiche Ideen, wie man Sketchnotes einsetzen kann. Somit eine gute Ergänzung zum engen Bezug des Handbuchs, um über den Tellerrand zu blicken. Referenzen fehlen (z. B. GTD oder Projektmanagement) - fremde Federn?

вторая книга Роуди про скетчинг, здесь показаны разные примеры скетчей в зависимости от целей - от планирования, до описания событий...

I found the first book more useful for UX designers.
I would still recommend reading the second book. Some advanced technics here might be useful for sketching personas and storyboards.
