بعد قرائة الكتاب قمت في تطبيق الأداة في الآتي:
١. فهرس محتوى "أجندا" لورشة عمل في تطبيق استراتيجية جديدة في تنفيذ المشاريع لإدارة المشاريع في كبرى الشركات في المملكة.
٢. تحضير مقابلة شخصية لستة أشخاص في خمس دقائق و تسجيل المعلومات في خريطة العقل في صفحة و احدة لستة أشخاص.
٣. تلخيص محاضرة في إدارة المشاريع لمدة خمسة ايام في ورقة واحدة فقط!
٤. تخطيط مجال لسبع مشاريع باستخدام WBS جزء من خريطة العقل مصمم للمشاريع

هذه في اقل من شهر!!! طريقة جداً فعالة و مؤثرة . اتمنى تطبيقها في النظام التعليمي.

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.

قرأت الكتاب بالنسخه العربية المتوفرة في جرير .
الكتاب جميل بترتيبه وفكرته إلا أن معظم الكلام شبه مكرر خاصه في الفصول الأخيره لكن أكثر فصل أثاااار دهشتي وجعلني أشكر الله مرارا وتكرارا هو الفصل الثاني حيث بدأ الكاتب بالتكلم حول المخ وقدراته العظيمه جدا ..سبحان الله
وقد طبقت فكرته حول الخرائط الذهنيه في المواد التي تكون مواضيعها متشعبه كالرياضيات مثلا فأفادتني جدا
كتاب أنصح بقراءته أو على الأقل أخذ نبذه ومعرفه بسيطه عن فكرته خاصة للمعلمين .

Thanks Tony Buzan for this fantastic book.This book has completely changed the way I think,study and deal with any difficulty.
First Buzan talks about how incredible our brain is.Then how the mind maps trigger both our right and left brain and its principles and applications in our real life.Beside he tells us how our lifestyle and diet can affect our mental health.
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 am

يبدو أن للكتاب نسختين نسخة من ترجمة جرير ونسخة من ترجمة العبيكان .. أمتلك نسخة مطابقة تماماً للنسخة الإنجليزية () ممتعة ورسوماتها مميزة وملهمه ... أفادني الكتاب دراسياً ٨٠٪ =) طريقة الخريطة الذهنية جداً فعالة.

Yup Pak Tony Buzan ini emang pakarnya memaksimalkan fungsi otak..
Apa itu Mind Map?
adalah cara termudah untuk menempatkan informasi ke dalam otak dan mengambil informasi ke luar otak -- mind map adalah cara mencatat yg kreatif, efektif, dan secara harfiah akan "menentukan" pikiran-pikiran kita.

Menurut saya Mind Map itu :
- mencabangkan ide besar menjadi ide-ide kecil yg lebih praktis
- mengawinkan bahasa kata dengan bahasa simbol/ikon/gambar untuk memudahkan pengingatan ide-ide si mind maper

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.

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 ...more

Really great book with amazing graphic, detailing and examples. The book however seems quite repetitive, and frankly only about two to three concepts are being discussed in the whole book and if I can be more cautious really one, which the writer try reconfirm the importance of using our Brain the way it likes to be used which is through brain maps.

I would definitely recommend reading it for everyone that hasn't set a specific strategy for their thinking and trying to explore a better way to re

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.

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

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.

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.

Solid introduction, with shortfalls

This is a nice little treatment on mind maps in their most generic form. But there's far too much off topic conversation about cognitive processes and insistence that mind maps closely model them. It's unnecessary salesmanship.

Still, worth the time and money.

The book I read to research this post was the Ultimate Book Of Mind Maps by Tony Buzan which is a very good book which I bought from kindle. Mind mapping is a technique for showing something in a visual way and most people remember things best visually, but it lets you understand something almost at a glance. This book doesn't add much new stuff to his other books and I think mind mapping is a skill worth learning. Tony has found you remember stuff best when you use lots of bright colours and yo ...more

What makes this book more remarkable than a simple self help guide is the science behind it. The combination of gentle advice and enlightening scientific information was incredibly effective, it is one thing to be aware of what you are thinking but, it is quite another to be aware of how you are thinking.

An important point Buzan makes is that Mind Maps are limitless, there is always scope for further solutions and inspiration and this is encouraged to be embodied as an attitude.The book is attra

I loved this book and the concept of Mind Maps. Although I would have loved to have more of the mind map information and examples instead of the other subjects on physical health but I guess it is just my opinion. It might be helpful for people who do not know much about maintaining health.

However I am determined to read more books on the subject and research about it. It seems to be a very useful tool if used in daily life and who doesn't want to improve their life and reach their potential.

Buku ini mengenalkan saya kepada Mind Mapping dan ini benar-benar membantu saya dalam mengorganisir ide-ide yang saya miliki. Ide-ide tersebut dijabarkan kepada suatu kerangka. Kita bisa bermain dengan gambar, warna, kata2 dalam menyusun kerangka tersebut. Kita juga harus menggambar kerangka tersebut dalam selembar kertas (tidak lebih). Bagi saya ini bagus karena kita bisa melihat ide-ide kita secara keseluruhan.

Een mooi luxueus uitgegeven, geactualiseerde en meer praktisch gerichte versie van de vorige boeken van Tony Buzan over mind maps en de werking van het brein mbt geheugen, studeren, planning, creatief denken, etc.
Ik gebruik dagelijks Mindmaps om mijn chaos onder controle te krijgen. Voor mijn werk, studie, kunstplezier en onderzoek. Wie er nog niet mee werkt, mist echt iets!

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.

Tam arşivlik bir kitap. 7 den 70 e herkesin okuması gereken bir kitap olduğunu düşünüyorum. Özellikle öğrencilerin bu kitapta anlatılan metodları uygulamalarının başarılarını arttıracağına eminim. Tabi sonuçta her şey uygulamada bitiyor. Kitapta öğrenilenleri kendi hayatınıza uygulamadıktan sonra pek bir önemi yok.
