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 rat

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...

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

This book has been really enlightening. I'm now using mind maps to plan my day and take notes in lectures. I would 100% recommend reading it. Mind maps are amazing!

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
