Nancy began her career as an author with a call from Zephyr Press (Tucson, AZ) asking if she could write a "book on doodling". She wrote, Mapping Inner Space, a book that goes way beyond doodling and inspires parents, teachers and learners of all ages to learn to put their ideas on paper using images and limited words. The book was a best-seller for a decade for Zephyr Press and as a result they asked Nancy to create comics for them videos, and other products that helped students understand the ways they are smart. Nancy wen ton to write other books for various publishers and is currently completing a book about memories of childhood abuse that is illustrated like a watercolor journal.

Format: Paperback
This is actually the updated version of the author's earlier book bearing the same title. It has been fully expanded to cater to professional and businesspeople, and is now packed with many colourful illustrations.
I am very confident businesspeople will find this book useful in enhancing and expanding their visual-perceptual mode of thinking and problem solving.
In this book, the author stretches the traditional boundary of mindmapping as created by Tony Buzan in his many proprietary "Mindmapping" books since the mid-70s.
The author breaks some traditional "Mindmapping" rules in the process, which she now calls "Mindscaping." This enables the reader to exercise the untapped and unlimited potential of the mind to create new working maps in the process of learning and thinking.
For professionals and businesspeople, her 'mindscaping' approaches can be adapted to suit any 'focused conversations' in a group or organisational setting.
I find Tony Buzan somewhat structured in his proprietary approach, and it is good that Nancy has done an excellent job to take a refreshing and "out-of-the-box" approach to traditional mindmapping. This gives much more meaning to the mindmapping process as it should be in the first place, and now makes it much easier to learn and apply in the real world.
For those readers who still think 'mindmapping' (or Tony Buzan) is great stuff, wait till you get hold of this book!
For beginners, Nancy's book is also a great help as she shows how to do simple iconic pictures.
For further exploration, I would recommend readers to buy and read Larry Raymond's Reinventing Communication, which showcases more business applications, particularly in the area of strategic planning.

For more interesting ideas, I would recommend readers to buy and read Milli S!onnenman's Beyond Words, which showcases some business applications.

Kathy Mason's Going Beyond Words and David Hyerle's Visual Tools for Constructing Knowledge are also worth pursuing, especially if you are in the teaching/academic environment.

I understand that the author is coming up with an expanded version for business applications. Watch out for it at Amazon.com.

Format: Paperback
The idea of mapping is not new to me, but actually using it as a tool in teaching and for my personal life is. Nancy Margulies' excellent book shows, in just enough detail, how to create a map for many different purposes, directions for using with different ages - children through adults; gives suggestions for drawing concepts in a simplified way, and offers encouragement to just do it. The only suggestion I have for improvement is to update the website info at the end of the book.

Format: Paperback
I own Nancy Margulies' first book on Mapping Inner Space and am so glad that the new one is full of even more ideas, lots more color maps and an expanded drawing section. I don't draw, or I didn't until I tried the symbols and exercises in the book. The main reason it is such a useful (and delightful) book is that the mapping process can be used for planning and presentations and improving communication skills. It would be excellent for students and teachers. I would also recommend it to people experiencing stressful life experiences, it really helps in sharing ideas and has helped me think in new ways.

Format: Paperback
Not only does this book contain the basics of mindmapping techniques pioneered by Tony Buzan, it presents something that many of us are lacking -- stroke by stroke exercises in drawing simple iconic figures that can be quickly mastered and incorporated into your mindmaps....as someone who is "graphically challenged" I particularly appreciated these drawing lessons!

This book has managed to take a very creative process and make it doable for the less experienced. If you work with people and want to be able to, in an artistic way, but more importantly, a usuable way, record the unfolding work- this book is extraordinary. It covers so many differently arenas where visual mapping can support decistion making, creative thinking, and collaborations.It is the best book of it kind.

Format: Paperback
The author's enthusiasm for mind mapping is infectious and makes the reader feel that anyone can use this technique to organize their thoughts and be creative at the same time. The use of humor and a wealth of examples makes the process of learning mind mapping effortless. The liberal use of color and pictures in the mindmaps appeals to the kid in all of us who can not resist doodling with that magic marker
