The book is progressive yet stimulating. Starting from a simple brainstorming exercise, he shows you how to make this more complete by refining it into an either/or Mind mapping to tackle making choices, extending it to a more complex and more satisfying multiple categories mind mapping.
The beauty of the book lies in its common sense. Exploring this system,you'll find yourself saying 'Aha! This is how I can find how to...!'

No doubt, there are other methods, but this one is a delight, makes it fun to learn, using your vivid imagination, unblocking your inspiration.
To obtain serious results, with a playful practice, read and learn from this book.You shall be a better person for absorbing this fascinating skill.
Buy it in all confidence, you will acquire an amazing tool that will definitley spark your immagination.
The only drawback to this method is that it is more time-consuming than traditional note-taking, but if you need to memorise large amounts of information, you will find that this is time invested, rather than time lost.
I don't buy all of Tony Buzan's claims about mind mapping, and I find that the writing style can get a little bit grating at times, which is why I am giving this book 4 stars rather than 5. If you are already self-confident, you might find Buzan's style slightly annoying too, but I can understand that he wrote this book with a wide audience in mind, and other people might need constant encouragement.
All in all, an extremely useful book, and one that should find its way onto any student's shelf.
This is exactly what I have been looking for.
It is thorough, well-written, full of examples and gives you everything you need to fully exploit the amazing tool that is the Mind Map. I've discovered brain power I thought I'd lost years ago, and a new fun in study and simply using my brain.
Well done Tony & Barry.
