For more than 30 years, Betty Edwards’ DRAWING ON THE RIGHT SIDE OF THE BRAIN has been a cornerstone text for artists of all skill levels—from beginners to professionals. Having sold nearly 2 million copies in the United States alone, this New York Times bestseller is the world’s most widely used drawing instruction book.

Daniel Pink, author of the New York Times bestseller A Whole New Mind, called it “A wonderful book.”

Now for the first time in over a decade, Edwards has fully revised and updated her landmark guide.

DRAWING ON THE RIGHT SIDE OF THE BRAIN: The Definitive Fourth Edition (Tarcher/Penguin, $32.95/hardcover, $19.95/paperback, $32.95 hardcover) helps readers deepen their artistic ability by channeling the power of right-brain perception. This all-new edition includes crucial updates based on current research on brain plasticity and the significance of right-brain learning. There are also new exercises that help your perception “cross over” from the dominant left brain mode to right. The new edition has a new focus on how exercising the right brain hemisphere can help balance out the left brain emphasis in American life. It also contains new information on how employing right-brain drawing skills can improve and broaden your everyday problem-solving skills.
