Book: Better Whiteboard Sketches

Better Whiteboard Sketches

Matthew Skelton

A well-drawn diagram can help a diverse group of people to understand and remember concepts and details, saving time and effort in avoiding repetition and misunderstandings. People who draw clear diagrams gain a reputation for being more understandable and helpful and their ideas and approaches are therefore more likely to succeed.

This book provides a very practical approach to better whiteboard sketches. Although the techniques are based on sound research and practical usage, the theory is kept to a minimum and you can get started with techniques almost immediately.


"A picture is worth a thousand words" goes the English saying, but too often whiteboard sketches and notebook drawings quickly lose their meaning after they are drawn. If you have ever looked at a technical diagram and thought "these squiggles are meaningless!", then this book is for you.
