From Here to There celebrates these ephemeral documents--usually forgotten or tossed aside after having served their purpose--giving them their due as artifacts representing stories from people's lives around the world. There is the young woman suffering from juvenile rheumatoid arthritis who created maps of the Humira injections on her stomach and thighs to help her remember the sites, and give them time to heal. Or the young boy who imagined a whole country for ants and put it to paper. Lucas from Australia drew an obsessively detailed map of his local traffic island, and a teenage girl contributed a map of her high school locker. Two American tourists got lost in the Bulgarian mountains following the hand drawn map of a local, and Britanny from Denmark drew directions to an animal rights protest in Copenhagen. The maps featured in From Here to There are as varied and touching as the stories they tell.

Hand Drawn Maps is a fun 'how to' book about hand drawn cartography. It is introduced by a brief history of maps and map making, followed by five sections covering everything you need to know to make your own maps. Section 1 covers the practicalities, so by the end of it you are equipped to create your own map using compasses, neatlines, cartouche, handlettering, and your own symbols. Section 2 looks at different types of map, from picture and word maps to architectural blueprints and video game maps. Section 3 uses a wide range of examples to show the reader how to create maps of places, from early strip maps used to describe the journeys taken by 18th-century stagecoaches to dungeon and treasure maps. Section 4 covers maps of ideas. There are exercises throughout to enable the reader to build on the knowledge they have just gained. The book is completed by six stand-alone projects.

The must-read summary of Jamie Nast's book: “Idea Mapping: How to Access Your Hidden Brain Power, Learn Faster, Remember More and Achieve Success in Business”. This complete summary of the ideas from Jamie Nast's book "Idea Mapping" highlights that the human brain is better at processing information when it is presented visually. Therefore by converting linear information that is received into an idea map, you create relationships which will help clarify the information contained. The author tells the reader the best ways to establish idea mapping, such as defining your purpose in advance, but understanding that it’s best to have ideas first and create order later. Start with less, rather than more – a word can be a better springboard than a phrase. Look at others’ idea maps on the same subject, to create synergy, then do a team map together. Added-value of this summary: • Save time • Understand key concepts • Expand your business knowledge To learn more, read "Idea Mapping" to improve your communication skills and produce better results.
