The book really does start from the beginning, so even if you're a complete beginner and have never tried mind mapping before, you can still get involved easily. Going back to the basics, the book tells the reader exactly what a mind map is and ho w to create and accessorize one. It then goes on to say how such techniques could be useful; in taking notes, lectures and presentations, gathering research and assembling information, collecting thoughts and developing solutions, and much, much more.
I was also surprised to note that there is even a section on writing; fiction and non-fiction with details on structuring paragraphs, getting specific, and so on. This was definitely an added bonus - I hadn't been expecting this information, but I certainly found it useful.
I eagerly absorbed all the information given on planning, making lists and setting goals - all of this is useful in the work that I do. And the better I do the planning, lists and setting goals, the more I'll achieve. I suspect even the information on group mind mapping will be helpful in the future, when I work on my next co-project.
What I liked best was the fact that the book is sympathetic towards different learning met hods, and how different people are. It helped in this respect by providing information on varying types of mind maps - so there's something in there for everyone.
Rounding up with details of mind mapping software and apps, I came out feeling like a veritable expert on mind maps. I just have to put the knowledge into practice now! Overall, I feel this book will definitely help me to become more efficient in my work. The easy to understand instructions and writing style ensure that anyone can read it and learn about mind mapping techniques without feeling intimidated.
So, if you're interested in mind mapping, grab this book and you'll find a method that's right for you.
I was sadly mistaken.
Mind mapping is a tool that I now have come to embrace for its ease of use and flexibility within my management realm. This title helped guide me toward adopting mind mapping, and I am very happy that I picked it up.
The book is well written, with a technical yet straight forward approach that never seems intimidating to the reader. Ideas are expressed clearly throughout the title, and many of the introductory maps use the concept of a solar system to simplify the thought process behind this technique.
This book literally covers everything that I find to be a key component of mind mapping, I was even able to find a great mind mapping app on my iPad using this title!
As the owner and operator of a marketing firm, I have had my employees read this book and implement the strategies discussed in the chapter on Group Mind Mapping into the way that we conduct business. Since we implemented these strategies, we have been able to set clear and obtainable goals, and conduct more thorough sales meetings as we are able to spell out a set plan for clients.
Overall, I would definitely recommend this book to anybody that feels they may benefit from a new process to brainstorm, set goals, or conduct business. It has had a great impact on me and my employees, and I feel that you can have similar results if you take the teachings to heart.
I recently went back to school, and I found myself struggling a bit, so my mom got me this book. I thought it would be a bunch of complicated nonsense. But it's actual advice, tips, and real life scenarios. Mind maps are such great ways to wrap your mind around anything that's troubling you.
After reading it, I began using it in my history class where I'm struggling the most. We're studying European History and all those dates and names just escape me. So I did a quick mind map of it and was amazed at how much easier it was to remember everything. And the funny thing is, thinking about it right now, I can picture the map and all the information in it.
I wish I'd given mind maps a chance 15 years ago when I was in school the first time. Maybe I'd be farther along than I am now. Don't wait until then, start now, you will be glad you did.
