review Ï eBook or Kindle ePUB ´ Dan Roam Dan Roam ´ 3 review Blah Blah Blah review ä 3 Ever been to so many meetings that you couldn't get your work done Ever fallen asleep during a bulletpoint presentation Ever watched the news and ended up knowing less Welcome to the land of Blah Blah BlahThe Problem We talk so much that we don't think very well Powerful as words are we fool ourselves when we think our words alone can detect describe and defuse the multifaceted problems of today They can't and that's bad because words have become our default thinking toolThe Solution This book offers a way out of blah While reading this book I really got clear on the need to draw little drawings as I talk with people to make the ideas vivid and understandable on many different levels It made my new found enjoyment of Draw Something on my iPad even meaningful as I now I get to practice making words come to life with a very simple and fast drawing That may sound like I am kidding and I was as I typed that but the reality is I have gotten much better at the simple little things that will work to do as Dan Roam teaches in his book I so uickly identify the BLAH BLAH BLAH that completely surrounds us all each dayI would HIGHLY recommend this book to business people that communicate to make a living sounds a little too broad but it really is worth reading

review Ï eBook or Kindle ePUB ´ Dan Roam Dan Roam ´ 3 review Blah Blah Blah review ä 3 Trying to understand a Harvard Business School class or what went down in the Conan versus Leno battle for late night TV or what Einstein thought about relativity Vivid Thinking provides a way to clarify anythingThrough dozens of guided examples Roam proves that anyone can apply this systematic approach from leftbrain types who hate to draw to right brainers who hate to write This isn't just a book about improving communications presentations and ideation; it's about removing the blah blah blah from your life for goo Dan Roam s Blah Blah Blah what to Do When Words Don t Work is a clear practical guide to visual thinking Roam moves the focus of visual thinking away from creativity and places it firmly on clear thinking and communication He provides a context for why the visual is so powerful it accounts for most of our brain s processing and then goes on to provide an approach to communicating visually that s tied closely to our verbal processing with a grammar and structure all its own And he does it delightfully as a storytellerIt s going to reuire practice but Roam s approach has given me a structured simple way of breaking down complex topics and serving them up as stories I look forward to applying it at work especially where our presentations are rife with mind numbing blah blah blah I would have loved to have applied it here but I have a few technological constraints I think our entire team will benefit from Roam s approach
