    First off, this book was given to me as a gift. I don't like books as gifts for this exact reason. How can such a simple and clean concept as mind mapping be stretched across 200 pages with a lot of unproven claims, beguiles me. "Mind mapping" might be the next new thing, but as an engineer working in the industry we utilize many types of modelling tools and styles, yet "mind mapping" is not one of them. It is too free flow, unstructured and to be honest, it comes across as modern art. Just beca First off, this book was given to me as a gift. I don't like books as gifts for this exact reason. How can such a simple and clean concept as mind mapping be stretched across 200 pages with a lot of unproven claims, beguiles me. "Mind mapping" might be the next new thing, but as an engineer working in the industry we utilize many types of modelling tools and styles, yet "mind mapping" is not one of them. It is too free flow, unstructured and to be honest, it comes across as modern art. Just because anyone can make one does not make them unique or useful. Also Mr Buzan, spent the last 30 pages of his book by advertising his "Mind mapping software". "You can generate PDF documents to share with your colleagues" , how does that have anything to do with what, how and where to utilize mind mapping. Tons of examples, which I do enjoy, but rather than "HERE THIS WHAT OTHERS MADE" type of style, why don't you dive deeper and analyze what those individuals "meant" or "wanted to represent" in these mind maps. Also this book should be called "Claims About Mind Mapping by Tony Buzan" cause there is an abundance of claims. "It will make your life better", "It will improve productivity", "It will cure cancer". As I was reading I kept asking "HOW?". If the author really cared about the concept of mind mapping rather than trying to get his software plug in, he would have explained; "It will improve productivity, due to shape oriented nature of the human brain, or blah blah blah". Tony "Claim" Buzan, please stop trying to make us use your software.

    I read “The ultimate book of Mind Maps” by Tony Buzan. It is a self-help book that teaches you how you can organize your mind and work with multitasks effectively. We are all agreed that the human brain is totally different than a computer. This book teaches you how to adopt this method in your daily life. Mind Maps take on the same structure as memory itself. Once you draw your own mind map, you rarely need to go back to it again. Mind Maps help organize your work, activities and tasks. To star I read “The ultimate book of Mind Maps” by Tony Buzan. It is a self-help book that teaches you how you can organize your mind and work with multitasks effectively. We are all agreed that the human brain is totally different than a computer. This book teaches you how to adopt this method in your daily life. Mind Maps take on the same structure as memory itself. Once you draw your own mind map, you rarely need to go back to it again. Mind Maps help organize your work, activities and tasks. To start to draw your own mind map, first you have to start in the center of the page, adding your main idea. From the main idea you draw arrows outward in all directions, producing a growing and organized structure composed of key words and key images. You might use key words, colors, symbols, icons, arrows to help you remember your own map. Now Tony Buzan has established online mind maps so it is easy for everyone to create his or her own visual plan. It is for everyone; businessmen, students or individuals. I strongly advise all my colleagues to read this book and to createtheir own mind map. It will help them to be more organized. Personally I tried it(*blow chart) and it was very useful to reach my goal.

I applied this technique in my studies(I'm a med student btw) and the outcomes were impressive.I could stuff my brain with massive amount of tricky information without getting confused.Beside it's amusing so never feel bored while studying,and when revision I could recall info smoothly without any trouble. If you are a high school student or at college then learn it,a father then learn your kids to use it,a manager use it in your company. It's really worth :)

    Dissappointing. I purchased this book to learn how to use Mind Maps more effectively. The book focuses on "selling" the Mind Map idea, rather than explaining how to use Mind Maps to promote innovation and problem-solving. Dissappointing.

    Mind maps are great. This book is not.

    Not bad. Like many books of this nature, could have been a long essay. Had to stretch it quite a bit to get a book out of it. Skim it and get what you need.

    It's truth in advertising, I assure you. You'll learn how to effectively use mind maps, why they're useful, why they work, and everything that goes into their creation and use. I enjoyed Buzan's perspectives on learning and his encouragement to the reader to seek out multiple ways of understanding learned material. If you've ever been curious about mind maps, I would highly recommend this book. You can probably finish it in a couple of hours. It's truth in advertising, I assure you.

    Mind maps are a valuable idea, used by people in many fields. But after the first couple of chapters, wherein the basic idea is laid out, Buzan becomes a carnival huckster promoting the benefits of mind mapping in over-the-top language and using spurious "evidence". It's so cartoonish it would be funny if I hadn't paid good money for this. Mind maps are a valuable idea, used by people in many fields.

    Chock full of examples to demonstrate the idea behind mind maps, this book helped me to realise mind maps don't necessarily have to be limited to academia.

    Contains a handful of good ideas for using mind maps effectively, but reads like a sales pitch.

    This book is a peppy self-improvement sales pitch dialled up to 110%. So excruciating that I had to give up.

    I read 2.5 books of Tony's books, and I can say he is a scammer. Tony always has a point and good idea that can be explained in a typical article of 2 pages, but he extend it into a book of 200 pages, you ask how? Easy, by including fillers, this book is about mind maps, let's talk about the evolution of brain and its parts and how it works. Talk about how "mind maps make you physically better" - he said it - and talk about fitness and sport. Read the first and last chapters only, and the rest is I read 2.5 books of Tony's books, and I can say he is a scammer.

    Eye opener to brain potential! Provides concise insights on how the brain functions and how a basic understanding of these vital functions could assist in organizing, memorizing and recalling information. Mind Maps are easy to understand, produce and track. A must read for brainstorming enthusiasts.

    It's a book for someone who heard about mind maps but never tried. This is not a very informative, nerdy, rigorous book on mind mapping. Rather it's a book that'll generalize the whole idea for you. In chapter 6, bunch of examples will guide you to how to use mind mapping in everyday events. I recommend not to read the whole book. Read the stuff you think you'll need. It's a book for someone who heard about mind maps but never tried. This is not a very informative, nerdy, rigorous book on mind mapping.

    Definitely helpful. Helped me to get through the synopsis of my book in an impulsive and much more fun way. It works sort of as Freuds associations and kind of gets the best of out you. However, I still have to learn how to quickly get from "bubble A" to "bubble Z". Definitely helpful. Helped me to get through the synopsis of my book in an impulsive and much more fun way.

    I highly recommend this book in order to enhance your skills be it learning, teaching or any other life aspect. The book explains how your brain functions synergistically and how you may create a balance of usage for the right and left cortexes of your brain.

    Examples of what mind maps can do The book provided how mind maps can apply in different settings, but the content organization is somewhat not very structured. Still a recommendation for people who’s curious about knowing what mind maps can do.

    Brilliant idea, bad focus in the Book The idea of mind map is brilliant and useful. However, the book seems to me as a mix of many subjects that have relatively far relatively.

    Could have been better The author spent too much time preaching. Adding more hands-on examples would improve your the book. We also need a version that uses mind map maps.

    I already went through the same but concise content in his other books such as Study skills and Use your memory books. However, good resource for a newbie to learn the technique and put to use.

    The author has 1 good idea and he keeps trying to apply it to everything. Repetitive. When the only tool you have is a hammer.....
