This book presents a great tool that you can use to organize, memorize, and revolutionize your thinking. It is very simple to use, and you will be mind mapping after reading the first few chapters. This book would be way too long if it was just a how-to book, but it is much more than that. It is 250 pages full of examples, ideas, and full-color mind maps that you can use to get ideas from.
It will seem almost too simple when you first start to use them, but they do provide some surprising insights. I am currently mapping out a book as I read it, and it is amazing to see exactly how the book is organized and how well the thoughts connect together. I plan to post a book review and the outline on my blog soon so others can see how well it works (Jonathan Edwards on Beauty (The Essential Edwards Collection)).
I also see huge potential for note-making, presentations, note-taking, and for initial outlines for writing your own book. There are so many things you can do with it, its hard to narrow it down.
This book may not maximize your brain's potential as the authors claim, but it is a worthwhile investment and will help you in many areas. Highly recommended.
