Visual thinking has become so popular today that it has spawned many excellent books from its most talented practitioners. These books are invaluable guides to this fascinating world of non-linear, bigger-picture thinking. They include many types of thinking with diagrams, mind maps, sketches and other forms of non-linear communication.
