A VISUAL GUIDE TO SORTING OUT LIFE AND WORK

Visual and verbal, working together in a pithy format.

BALANCED INTELLIGENCE COMES FROM COMBINING THE VISUAL AND THE VERBAL

Many people find it difficult to express ideas and solve problems purely with words. They find it much easier to use diagrams. After the runaway success of The Diagrams Book, Kevin “the diagrams guy” Duncan set himself a new challenge: to try and combine the two. 

Would it be possible to interweave narrative and visuals to create a helpful guide to sorting stuff out? The Intelligent Work Book does just that. From thinking, doing, working, planning and prioritizing, through to presenting, selling, negotiating, progressing in your career, or just plain fooling around. The result is a practical workbook that anyone can use.
