Amazon reviews for The Guide
Brandy Agerbeck has clocked her 10,000+ hours of mastery in the world of Graphic Facilitation and put together the definitive guide for anyone wanting to be a graphic facilitator or meeting maestro. Her writing style is as straight-shooting and fun as her meeting maps. She "chunks it down" on multiple levels that both novice and experienced practitioner can understand and appreciate.

Of particular value is the glimpse into Brandy's head regarding synthesis and chart creation: there's a whole section on the different levels of synthesis one can apply to the same presentation...and it's elegant in its genius. If nothing else, the section on synthesis is worth buying the book right there. Except that the entire book is pure gold.

This is a wonderfully practical and non-intimidating book for anyone who is interested in becoming (or becoming a better) graphic recorder. The book contains hundreds of tips for how to visually chunk information, write legibly and quickly, select colors and think of a general layout for your chart or map. Brandy is a leader in the field and it's a treat to get her perspective on the craft. I wish I'd had this when I started out!
