5.0 out of 5 stars Solid and substantive 18 Aug. 2012
By Martin - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This book is an authority.

Packed solid with carefully picked examples gathered from multiple diverse industries, the editors have aggregated and synthesized the research of many applied concept mapping practitioners.
It nicely shows how concept mapping has made credible inroads into many workplaces. It provide a reader with ideas of where else concept mapping can apply .
It's not a light read, I would not want it to be: it articulates in depth to provide proof about how concept mapping has made an impact.

It's a reference book I'll keep coming back to. Recommended.

1.0 out of 5 stars Long winded and boring. 26 July 2012
By 123 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This is a long winded chronicle of how concept mapping has been applied to situations in the past. Pages and pages go by, seemingly without a point being made. It also seems as if each chapter could easily be compressed into 2 paragraphs without any loss of meaning. It is written in a very scholarly tone which, as a casual reader, makes it difficult to enjoy. I want to learn about concept mapping, but without the tedium. Does anyone have any suggestions?

Thank you for reading my review! If you enjoyed it, be sure to rate it as helpful.
