Product Description

Product Description

The number one selling Mind Map book on the Kindle is on its 3rd version. Version 3.0 is the ultimate resource on the topic of mind maps with more innovative uses, examples, and illustrations than any other book.

Also includes links to numerous free mind mapping software - no need to buy, subscribe, or submit proof of purchase. Plus a bonus section that will triple your current reading speed and comprehension in a matter of minutes.

Mind Mapping is a note taking system which allows you to take better, faster, and more efficient notes. In conventional note-taking, you write down information line by line. With Mind Maps, you organize the information more in the form of a diagram, starting with a central key idea drawn in the center of the paper.

In addition to enhancing your note taking skills, Mind Maps help you improve your studying, writing, presenting, brainstorming, and creative skills. It is one of the best note taking skills anyone can learn.

5.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable and Informative 30 July 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
This is one of the better introductions to the topic of Mind Maps. Most authors don't spend a lot of time discussing how to create a mind map in detail. They will show you an illustration of a mind map or two, and assume that just because they understand what is going on by looking at the picture, that you will too. This book takes a good amount of time going over the ins and outs of mind maps and different ways you can put them together. It understands a tactic useful in one setting will not be as useful in another. Therefore, it gives you lots to think about and consider when varying your mind map.

The later part of the book discusses different application of mind maps. I liked the discussion on how to use mind maps during a lecture. Lectures tend to be a more difficult area to take notes, whether or not you using mind maps. The reason being a lecture is live, so you have to keep up with the pace of the presenter. You can't pause a lecture so if you don't keep up, you will miss important points. There are a few tips on how to effectively take notes using mind maps in lecture and presentation type settings. I've found them quite useful.

Very enjoyable and informative from start to finish

5.0 out of 5 stars Highly recommended! 1 Jan 2013
By Edward
Format:Kindle Edition
Finding a revision technique that works effectively can be difficult, but a number of people mentioned to me that they have used mind maps in the past, with varying degrees of success. Mind maps are meant to be a logical way of getting the key points down, while engaging the brain more than just note taking, but there's still a lot of unanswered questions regarding the specifics, that's why I read this book. Finding a well-explained, detailed description of all the key aspects has really been a revelation in my pre-exam technique.

The book covers what you would want to know about mind maps, from the different shapes and lines, to the use of color, but I think where it really outshines any other is in the additional content you wouldn't necessarily associate with mind maps. A good example is the section on how to read the mind map. The writer uses a helpful analogy to recognizing people's faces, and it is this simplicity echoed throughout the book that makes it so effective at conveying its message.

I think the reason mind maps only work with varying degrees of success, is because they aren't planned, drawn, or used correctly - certainly I wouldn't have, if let to my own devices! That's why a book that explains how, in a clear and concise manner is so vital if you want to use the technique with maximum benefit. This book excels at that, and because it covers more than just simply how to draw a mind map, even if you decide the technique isn't for you, it's still possible to take something useful away after reading it.

5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent resource 4 Mar 2011
By Lucy Felthouse TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
As someone big on self improvement, I thought this book would be incredibly useful, particularly with its subtitle of "quicker notes, better memory, and improved learning." Who doesn't want that?

The idea of mind mapping is that it helps you organise ideas. So instead of taking notes line by line, the idea is to place the central theme or keyword in the middle of the page and add more keywords surrounding it, with lines drawn between them to represent their relationships.

According to this book (and now I know, it definitely makes sense!), mind mapping makes you more effective because this method is more compatible with the brain. This is because it matches how the brain functions biologically. Mind mapping also engages both halves of your brain at once, making you much more efficient and effective.

A key point, and one very important to me personally is that mind mapping is supposed to enhance creativity. As a writer, there are few skills which are more important! I imagine many writers would find mind mapping a very useful way of planning out their work, linking together various ideas, characters and plot points.

As the book says, it'll be difficult to break my habit of making linear notes and the mind mapping will take practice. I've only really covered how I personally will find mind mapping useful, but the book covers a wide variety of ways in which it helps people, for example; note taking, brainstorming, collaborative writing, problem resolution and more.

So if you're looking for a way to make your planning and note-taking go more smoothly and effectively, then this book is ideal.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant and easy to follow 6 April 2014
By Bookie TOP 100 REVIEWER
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I love mind maps. My brain is a jumble of dis and inter connected ideas, thoughts, beliefs etc. I used to struggle to capture what was going on, mainly so I could explain to others. Then I discovered mind mapping; probably pushing 20 years ago. Suddenly, my note taking or random words on paper had relevance. I could use the way my mind works to capture, assimilate and explain in a meaningful way.

They are so easy, so functional and work at every level. From initial 'brainstorming' of ideas in a single or group scenario, to informing a more structured approach to Prince2 or other project management principles, these 'maps' are the foundation.

They may not work for everyone, but I found them a revelation and over many years of applied practice in learning environment, I know many who embraced the main points. Give them a go, you have nothing to lose!
