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.
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!
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.Read more ›
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.
