This is a good introduction to mind mapping. Rustler explains both hand-drawn and computer-generated mind maps, emphasizing the use of colors and the advantages of restricting yourself to single word concepts.

This book provided some good explanations to the technique of mind mapping and ways it can be applied for studying, learning, note taking, etc. I thought some of the later chapters had a bit corporate speaker-talk, but overall, I thought the book was 90% or so solid in material.

I think my experiences with Mind Mapping have been very fruitful, and I will be
