What a powerful short video on visual thinking, how our brain functions, and its place in human history. The video itself is a great story. Visual thinking is the backbone of creating and telling compelling stories. All great storytellers convey images and sensory material to their audiences -- no matter what the media. This video makes it clear we all have the raw material to work with. Sharing visual images through storytelling takes lots of practice to do, yet we can all do it. I like this piece because it makes visual thinking explicit.

"Dan Roam (Author of "The Back of the Napkin") gives a complete overview of the history and definition of visual thinking, and a bonus of the history of the human species in 5 minutes."
