We are currently awash in a tidal wave of advice-givers, self-help-gurus, super-coaches, and other baloney hucksters who are wangling their way to a web presence and freedom from their day jobs. “Mind Mapping” by Kam Knight is a refreshing (and rare) departure from this tsunami of rehashed ideas and inspirational fluff. Kam has written a book that is pragmatic, useful, unpretentious, and straightforward. I cannot think of an area of life or business that the techniques in this book will not materially improve.
This is a great book on mind mapping. I’ve already begun to implement. It is nourishing to me to know that peoples brains work differently. This would have been great information years ago but there’s no time like the present!
Marc burns 5.0 out of 5 stars Complete information mind mapping Reviewed in the United States on August 18, 2017 Verified Purchase This is the most complete, easy to understand, thorough book on mind mapping I have seen yet. I have read over a dozen mind mapping books, including several Bozan books. Chapter 3 gives the best introduction on how to mind map I have seen yet. If you are interested in mid mapping, this is the book to start with and you need it in your reference library for sure. Enjoy the trip with Kam.
I thought that mind maps were simply a memory device for learning; boy, was I wrong! The great thing about this book is that it presents numerous different applications (with specific examples) for which mind maps can be used. I chose to implement just a few; this included my general to do list (placed into categories --- I could visually see the high priorities), problem solving/solution brainstorming, and plans for achieving business goals (project management). I am very visual, so the mind mapping method works very well for me. Additionally, this book is extremely comprehensive with clear explanations; addresses different learning styles; explains how to teach children to use mind mapping; and provides ideas for inspiration.
