I had heard mind maps were a great tool for learning and memory as well as for organizing your thoughts. Of the different books I researched, I purchased this one, and I’m really glad that I did. Ken Arthur shows readers how to apply mind maps to almost anything from writing and goal setting to brainstorming and scheduling your work week. The instructions were very easy and straight-forward and always followed by real world examples. If you've ever been curious about mind maps, I would highly recommend this book.

Review by: Jay M on Feb. 09, 2014 :
This book is a thought provoking look at how we assimilate information into our lives. Traditional note-taking is a linear process whereby a person writes notes line by line on a sheet of paper. The problem is that the brain does not function in a linear fashion. The brain is a network of inter-connected neurons that form web of neural pathways for transferring, storing, and understanding information. So traditional note-taking is similar to fitting square peg in a round hole.

This book lays out a straight-forward approach to note-taking that the human brain can more readily assimilate. It does so in an easy to read style that is free of jargon and technical terms. It starts with a historical perspective and goes through current methologies for mind mapping, and then discusses the advantages and disadvantages. From there it describes the process, and further discusses the elements of a mind map. Finally it discusses several different possible applications for using mind maps.

I found it to be an extremely informative and revolutionary look at how to assimilate information in a pragmatic way. I wish I had learned about it when I was in school. But I guess life is a form of school. I give it five stars.
