The Remedy -- USA Today review

Hi ya'll,

Pascal here

Pleased to say that USA Today has reviewed my latest book The Remedy.

Would love to hear from you on the following:

What did reviewer get right? What did he get wrong?

Review wasn't totally sold on the doodles in The Remedy

Are doodles and images a good way of communicating ideas? Why or why not?

  1. I think doodles and images are a great way of communicating ideas. And I find the ones in Pascal's book totally delightful! But then....maybe I'm a little bias....I am Pascal's wife! :-)
    But a few quick thoughts...

    Using doodles and images...

    - do communicate ideas and express emotions
    - create an emotional appeal
    - are expressing ideas in a different way (good to be different)
    - combining words and images thoughtfully can deepen their meaning. For example: Look at illustrated children's books to see how images and words strengthen each other. (can ya tell I'm a teacher?)
