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
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.

After finishing this book, I realized that one of our teachers had been teaching this method a long time ago but in a very "primitive way" while preparing for essay writing. But since then, I didn't follow through that method.
I luckily stumbled upon this book while researching Memory Palace. And after finishing this book, I was taken completely by surprise looking at the huge application of this method, not just on the study but in day to day life.
I simply recommend this book to anyone who wants

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...

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.

Todo el mundo debería leer este libro y aprender a utilizar esta maravillosa herramienta.
Es un libro a todo color y está muy bien escrito y ordenado, con buenos fundamentos teóricos y lo más importante, con ejercicios propuestos para comprobar por nosotros mismos el poder de los mapas mentales.

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.

Tony Buzan reescreveu o mesmo livro pela centésima vez. Pensei que acharia novos e substanciosos insights sobre mapas mentais, mas no fim das contas achei as dicas de sempre e muita prolixidade.
Para quem não conhece mapas mentais, é um bom livro para entender sobre o que se trata, já que essa prolixidade pode ajudar um novato. Para quem já tem conhecimento, não vale a pena. Só dou 3 estrelas por conta do "conjunto da obra".

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.

Great tips and ideas, but the way the book was written wasn't that good.

I liked Tonny Buzan's passion for visualization. Although I don't feel mind maps so much effective, but the book has important information.
