Really enjoyable little book that encouraged me to get out and about more and also how to think more.
Enjoyed getting out and about on a school night to learn some more about open data and really enjoyed the talks with a little networking for good measure.
As it’s World Sketchnote Day 2016 tomorrow, I couldn’t let it go by un-mentioned. Looks like it will be a day full of enthusiasm and evangelism for sketchnoting.
Impressively written and evocative book about WW1 and the two protagonists approaches to the horrors.
I needed a book for my long train journey back from the excellent as usual IWMW, so popped into the charity shop and came up with ‘The Psychopath Test’ by Jon Ronson. I really enjoyed the ensuing 5 hours on the train, with an entertaining and interesting tour of mental illness, psychiatry, psychology and the media. Much more fun than it sounds.
