    The whole idea of Mind Maps should be well known by now so why do you need this book? Tony Buzan makes the point that in the last years people came up with graphics that look like mind maps but are actually inferior. Therefore he felt obliged to show how to create them correctly. This wouldn't fill a book so in addition there are many examples, stories and suggestions that inspire future usage. In my opinion, even if you already use mind maps the book is worth the money (the Kindle edition is ra The whole idea of Mind Maps should be well known by now so why do you need this book? Tony Buzan makes the point that in the last years people came up with graphics that look like mind maps but are actually inferior. Therefore he felt obliged to show how to create them correctly. This wouldn't fill a book so in addition there are many examples, stories and suggestions that inspire future usage. In my opinion, even if you already use mind maps the book is worth the money (the Kindle edition is rather cheap). Tony shows for instance why single keywords (and not phrases) on a branch are so powerful, or why to use graphical elements. There are good reasons for his laws. Using some software makes it pretty easy to create and especially modify mind maps. However, I find the process more satisfying when drawing on real paper as it provides better creative freedom. Doodling on the PC or laptop is kind of meh so my digital mind maps don't turn out so appealing unless I spend enough time to search for fitting images. Finally, the book is a great example how to structure learning material. There is an overview about the whole book, what you will learn etc. Then each chapter tells you first what it is about before presenting the material. Exercises are everywhere and invite you to apply what you have learnt. That's the way how to make something memorable. All thumbs up

    I have been a student and fan of Tony Buzan's Mind Mapping technique for decades. This book is an excellent refresher for anyone who has used the system. It includes additional suggestions for how to use Mind Mapping in every day life. I had hoped it would take us further in depth than the original book but I guess the author did so well initially that this book just reinforced and supported how well the Mind Mapping system has been used world wide.

    Mind mapping is great, and Tony Buzan is the mind behind it. Reading about how great mind mapping can be is be helpful in terms of motivating oneself, yet 200 pages is a bit too much on the subject.

    Really liked the concept. It's laws, techniques and applications are well elaborated in the book but the book becomes repetitive. Merely skimming each page in one glance was enough to grasp all of its content. I wish it could provide more precise steps on mind mapping. Really liked the concept.

    A good book with some good ideas on thinking differently. Will use the techniques to develop some new presentations. I'm always wary of anything with "laws".

    I am using it almost everyday! And it allows me to create endlessly and easily. Ideas and requirements just pop-up! This book, in an easy way, just lets you understand the main concepts and refine them along the time. Definitely a reference to come back for refreshment of ideas!

    I've heard a lot, and been involved in numerous of brain-blooming sessions to use this tool. It's not a miraculous tool, if you're not well-aware of the subjects you'll try to cover. However for memorisation, I think I've been using a similar thing, using LOADS of colours and shapes, that proved effective over time, as I always and still find it hard to memorise anything. The book is very practical on the other hand, you'll need to practise all along, tbh I didn't do that... I've heard a lot, and been involved in numerous of brain-blooming sessions to use this tool.

    Mind Maps are more powerful than anything in this book. I use mind mapping software for organizing thoughts and projects all the time. The title is correct in that it's the most powerful tool I've come across in decades. However, you won't get that usefulness out of this book. The mind maps presented by the author are the touchy-feely kind that a "facilitator" might make during a meeting and are then never looked at again.

    Only little useful content besides what constitutes a solid mind map and what the benefits are. He tends to go on and on about unrelated things, repeating himself and stuffing in many, many examples about a concept which is fairly easy to grasp. I will definitely be using Mind maps, but Tony could have condensed this book into about 20 solid pages, which would have gotten 5 stars from me.

    This book has convinced me that mind mapping is a great tool that everyone can use. Why, then, did I give the book only 2 stars? Because I don't think that mind mapping is a magical cure that can solve everything, and that's what the book is mostly about. The anecdotes in the book only show that organisation in one's life will improve anyone's quality of life. They don't prove that mind mapping is the only one way that works. This brings to mind fundamentally contradictory theories in psychology, This book has convinced me that mind mapping is a great tool that everyone can use.

This brings to mind fundamentally contradictory theories in psychology, each of which can help a person come to grips with trauma just by giving the patient a clear way to understand the world. My second complaint is that, at many points, the author refers to research that seemingly supports mind mapping, but it really doesn't. An example would be the study that showed that people remember pictures very well. That might well be true (as everyone probably already knew), but it provides no evidence that mind maps are pictures. Buzan simply asserts that to be the case. In my opinion, a statement which is that unintuitive needs more proof. Tl;dr This book bad; mind mapping gyd; won't cure cancer

    Many of the example in the books were not relevant personally to me and sometimes seemed to be a little bit childish and not applicable to the "real world". However, I think that the main idea is still very useful and can be applied to many domains of human activity, which has the potential to make not only the life of the reader better but also lives of other people that he's interaction with on a daily basis.

    A simple idea really... The idea can be passed in a moment. The rest of the book is examples and exercises to help you master it. I got frustrated by my software, so will go back to doing this by hand to master it. Though some of the maps he calls out as exemplars are baffling to me. I’m giving it 4*’s until I practice.

    Realy good book, theory and ways to implement. Thoroughly explained. Downside in my opinion : Way longer than it should be for some reason . It could be condensed in 110 pages max having exactly the same value as a book and being that way more enjoyable. I repeat my opinion. It is not an attack on the book or its teachings

    This is an interesting update on an old favourite. Mind maps have been around for years, but still have their uses in the digital age. This book is informative and useful, with plenty of ideas as to how to use mind maps. Thank you to the publisher and Netgalley for an ARC of this book.

    I was familiar with mind maps primarily as a way to study content. I've never used them for planning or for problem solving. The author presents an array of mind maps for different purposes that makes sense and that I can see myself using in the future. I was familiar with mind maps primarily as a way to study content.

    I was lucky enough to spend an evening with Tony at the British Embassy in Belgium where he demonstrated mind mapping, Since then I have sort of used his techniques to assist me with some top ideas that needed in depth research and thus ordering. I thought I knew all about mind mapping and oh how wrong I was! This book is amazing from all the examples he gives to the sessions he talks the reader through, every page is a new learning experience. I loved his dictionary association mind mapping and I was lucky enough to spend an evening with Tony at the British Embassy in Belgium where he demonstrated mind mapping, Since then I have sort of used his techniques to assist me with some top ideas that needed in depth research and thus ordering.

I loved his dictionary association mind mapping and had so much fun trying to bring that creativity to my diagram. The ideas of when to use mind maps extend much further than I ever imagined and keeping the maps in a folder to be used perhaps at a different planning project was so obvious but hardly ever actioned before I read this book. A great book to explain in minute detail how mind maps are for everyone and how to let the mind free itself from all the restrictions we normally put upon it.

    This is a great book. It is the first time I have ventured into the world of mind mapping and this book was informative and fun. Simple but useful. I have been using the techniques from this book to organize many thoughts and it is working out great. Highly recommend.
