How have you used or intend on using this resource?

I would use this as a basic primer before first attempting graphic recording. There's a lot of useful tips on what basic shapes and fonts to get your head (or hand?) around and how to set yourself up well to start sketching (e.g. which seat to choose, how to prepare and take advantage of down time).

Why would you recommend it to other people?

This is a very practical guide, written for people who have never tried sketch-noting before. Hopefully there's enough common sense advice in hear to alleviate some of people's fears or hesitations about having a go at graphic recording and have a go.
