Format: Paperback
The beginning of this book has a lot of fascinating information about brain structure and the biology of thought processes. This serves to illustrate the architecture of our minds, and how we can best utilise our vast resources. While the immense power or our brains is no doubt true, I think that after a while, the book begins to expect too much. It does introduce the concept of "radiant thinking" and "mind-mapping" on a perfectly acceptable level though. The book is meant to have something for people at every level of capability however, and I think it achieves it well. The layout of the book is incredibly organised, and it is very easy to skim through and get a representative picture of the book without reading it all. It is also very quick and easy to find the information you are looking for. I think the best thing about this book it it covers a large range of applications for your new skills. It only lets itself down by occasionally talking down to you

A well organised book that allows you to rapidly grasp the principles behind Mind-Mapping, the basics of the techniques, then understand how to apply it in various circumstances. As a professional lecturer and business consultant, the technique has been of great help to me. I have explained it to my daughter, who is severely dyslexic, and she was amazed how much she could learn, understand and memorize!

I first read this book 5 years ago and having neglected it's very obvious value revisited it.
Mr Buzan has a very powerful and positive way of presenting his material, which no doubt assists his obvious success, just do a search on Buzan to see how prolific he and his brother are.
I warmly recommend this book to anyone intent on self improvement.

1.0 out of 5 stars Mind Quackery 18 Jan. 2005
By VictoriaW - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book is hopelessly misleading. It gives an idea about how to draw mind maps, but also gives a horrendous idea of where they are appropriate within learning to learn.

The book more or less junks other forms of note taking in order to market other Buzan products. Nonsense about left and right brain (which has been debunked since the 1970s) is constantly presented as an argument for using your whole range of cortical skills (which cannot even be measurably seperated).

It leaves the reader thinking that just drawing one of these things is good enough. Whereas you really need to be internally active in order to learn.

There is also a crackpot scheme for helping the world to mindmap. If this isn't a cult manual, I don't know what is.

Pseudoscience, quackery, mind myths, and lots of stuff to get you to buy more of the same, without seeing to the needs of learners.

I once heard that management consultants like mind maps, because they are simple. Sounds about right!

Motivational speakers use their whole brain, but the left side has nothing right, and the right side has nothing left!

Learn to use a variety of graphic organisers, and learn to apply them to specific situations, and please don't tell people that you are doing it because otherwise you would not be using both the left and right sides of you brain.

3.0 out of 5 stars Another Buzan book 30 July 2005
By Cute mom - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I partly agree with the previous reviewer about the book's tendency to mindmap EVERYTHING, which isn't quite practical in every sense.

Yet, I still think that this book provides something to start with if you're interested in mind map - and understand what's the fuzz behind it so that you can choose to use it or not.

In note taking for conference interpretation, I've found mindmapping working quite well as that's the only way I won't miss anything and the whole picture can be drawn and seen while I repeat the person's speech in another language.

But right, mind map is not for everything. I won't use it for my clay projects.
