Mind mapping is a way of taking notes that jolts your ability to learn and manage information. It not only makes activities like studying easy, but many times fun.

Taylor’s book is a terrific resource for learning about mind maps. It covers more original uses of the technique than anything else I’ve read, including uses that you wouldn’t think of like recall and diagnosis. The examples are real world, the instructions are easy to follow, and the illustrations are clear and professional.

In fact, this book is famous for setting the standard in teaching mind maps. So much so that many `wanna be authors' have copied its outline and format, often word for word. You'll likely find reviews on other books saying how they found the content to resemble what’s written here.

Taylor’s book initially helped me as a student. His discussion on mind mapping books gave me a simple and effective system to learn and remember information far better than before. And the segment on mapping lectures really improved my ability to take notes in real time. After following his advice, my grades were never higher, going from C's and B's to mainly A's.

Now as a professional, Taylor’s ideas are helping me further. I'm using it at work to better manage tasks, plans, and projects; putting order and organization to not just my own thoughts, but my team's as well. I've also had tremendous success using it in sales to simplify complex information to customers.

All in all, this book is a valuable guide to advance anyone’s thinking, learning, and problem solving. A must for students, planners, project managers, writers, and for use in teaching, writing, brainstorming, presenting, and other areas.

This book is like the mind mapping it describes: a concise and simplified way of approaching complex information. After a quick overview of the concept of mind-mapping and the people who developed and popularized the method, this book jumps right into how to make your own mind maps. Several techniques are outlined and links to software packages are included. Once you have learned how to make a mind map, you are guided through a plethora of possibilities for using them.

So far I've used the technique to organize notes from my last class and it really helped me absorb the key information. I used a mind-map to plan my day and was amazed at how easy it was to prioritize tasks and list all the sub-tasks in a logical manner. Next, I used it to improve my reading comprehension of a technical book that I'm reading and was surprised at how little time it took to summarize each chapter -- and how the book is becoming easier to read now that my mind is focused on classifying key concepts in a visual way.

I highly recommend this book and mind-mapping!

When I was a student in middle school, high school and college, I used to be a horrible note-taker. My penmanship was not the best and I tended to try to cram as much information as I possibly could into my barely legible but traditionally linear notes, so I would also lag behind most of my peers in class. Eventually, I resorted to asking classmates to use carbon paper and make duplicate sets of notes for me, but even the quality of the data I had to assimilate was heavily dependent on others' note-taking skills.

Today's students - and everyone else, for that matter - have to navigate through virtual seas of information in order to thrive at school, work or even in creative endeavors. So much data and creative inspiration is at our fingertips in books, mass media and the digital universe of the Internet that traditional note-taking, which relies on "tried and true" linear methodology, can't really help us handle efficiently.

Had I known about the concept and practice of mind mapping back when I was in high school, perhaps I would have processed information in a more intuitive and natural fashion, which is one of the key concepts in Michael Taylor's Quicker Notes, Better Memory, and Improved Learning with Mind Maps.

In reading Taylor's six-chapter book, I have learned that though mind mapping might seem like a new innovation, it has been practiced in some form or another since the Greek Golden Age and the Roman era, when philosophers such as Simonedes of Ceos and Porphyry of Tyre used early methods of using graphic charts to create and organize ideas in hierarchical formats which were based on mental imagery and word/noun association.

This is a very good book on the subject of Mind Maps. I like what one of the previous reviewer said, that this book takes an unfamiliar topic to most and makes it intuitive....which is an art.

If I was learning or looking for easier ways to apply mind maps, I would give this book 5 stars as it does a great job of introducing the concept, explaining its importance, and showing readers effective ways to use and apply it in different areas of their lives. It does this all in a quick, concise, and straightforward manner.

Though I advocate the book I give it 3 stars b/c I am an avid Mind Maps user and was hoping it would take my skill to the next level. In many ways it did, in some it fell short.

Nonetheless, still a good read, worth giving it a try. If other books have not worked for you or you're new to the topic, you want to start here.
