What Buzan does offer is a way to study more effectively. Instead of reading and reading text, Buzan offers different methods of learning, storing and recalling information which is invaluable. Time is still required for this to work, drawing a useful mind map takes time, perfecting note taking takes practice and although the speed reading section offers some good tips much psychological research has indicated that the faster you read information the worse your recall of that information is.
If you're setting out on learning, whether at school, university or at any point of your life BUY THIS BOOK. You will learn some fantastic ways to make your learning more effective. It will still take time to learn things but you will learn and be able to recall the information so much better than before.
It does have exaggerated claims and a bit of hype too, I think. i.e. at the back of the book it says learn a technique to increase your vocab by 10,000 words. (an average person uses about 1,000 to 2,000 words in their regular vocab) What's the technique? Memorise the roots! it has a list of about 30 roots which are roots for 10,000 English words. Well...you are not going to know what all of those 10,000 words mean knowing 30 roots. Most of the roots you probably know anyway. (I am not a native speaker and I knew all of them!)
but overall it has many important points I wish I knew when I was a student. It can save you hours of pointless studying.
