Book Description

The number one selling Mind Map book on the Kindle is on its 3rd version. Version 3.0 is the ultimate resource on the topic of mind maps with more innovative uses, examples, and illustrations than any other book.

Also includes links to numerous free mind mapping software - no need to buy, subscribe, or submit proof of purchase. Plus a bonus section that will triple your current reading speed and comprehension in a matter of minutes.

Mind Mapping is a note taking system which allows you to take better, faster, and more efficient notes. In conventional note-taking, you write down information line by line. With Mind Maps, you organize the information more in the form of a diagram, starting with a central key idea drawn in the center of the paper.

In addition to enhancing your note taking skills, Mind Maps help you improve your studying, writing, presenting, brainstorming, and creative skills. It is one of the best note taking skills anyone can learn.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Addition to the Previous Versions January 23, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
This is a great book for improving learning, thinking, creativity, and memory. I've been reading it since the first version. I will admit, the first version was mediocre at best, however, it was one of the first and few mind map books in digital platform at the time. Version 2.0 was a big step up as a well-written and organized guide with good explanations and illustrations. It really set the standard for mind mapping as I noticed many `wanna be authors' copy its format and outline, sometimes word for word. You'll even find reviews on other books saying how they found the content to closely resemble this book.

Version 3.0 is excellent. It nicely builds on the first two to provide more ideas, uses, and explanations of mind maps and mind mapping. It covers more original applications than anything else I've read; even applications one wouldn't think of like recall and diagnosis. The examples are real world, the instructions are easy to follow, and the illustrations look clean and professional.

As a student, this book helped me tremendously in school. The chapters on mind mapping books and lectures gave me a system to learn and remember information far better than before. With it, my grades were never higher, going from C's and B's to getting mainly A's.

Now as a professional, the information is helping me out even 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. It's improved my problem solving to develop better and more creative ideas, which has received much praise from my superiors. I've also had tremendous success in sales to simplify presentation of complex information to customers and clients.

All in all, this book will help anyone advance their thinking, learning, and problem solving. It is a must for students, planners, project managers, writers, and for presentations, teaching, writing a thesis, etc

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent book makes mind mapping easy February 8, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
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.

3.0 out of 5 stars Worth a Try July 25, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
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.
