Buzan needs work on clarity
on January 13, 2001
Overall the book is short, succint, and gets the basics of how the brain, eyes, and body work to remember information. His idea of 'mind-mapping' is interesting and the color diagrams that he provides help readers start using 'mind-mapping' techniques. However, the book lacks clarity on the explanations of each section - particularly on the section about reading and increasing reading speed. His diagrams also do not always stay in touch with the explanations on the direct page. Thus, sometimes the diagrams confuse the reader rather than help illustrate his point.
