Publisher's Summary

Mind mapping is a note-taking system which allows you to take better, faster, and more efficient notes. In conventional note-taking, you write down information line by line. With mind maps, you organize the information more in the form of a diagram, starting with a central key idea drawn in the center of the paper.

In addition to enhancing your note taking skills, mind maps help you improve your studying, writing, presenting, brainstorming, and creative skills. It is one of the best note-taking skills anyone can learn.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio.

a tool for everyone

They should really teach mind mapping in school. As someone who's struggled with learning disability, mind mapping has helped me tremendously. I can't say enough good things about it.

better than I was expecting

I didn't think I could learn much about mind mapping by listening to an audio lesson but I am surprised, pleasantly surprised. With the audio reference, the material is presented in a way that is both simple and easy to follow and understand. I've now got some new tools in my arsenal which I'm excited to apply.

Wonderful Exploration of Mind Mapping

If you notice, there aren't really any audio books on mind maps (as of this review). That’s inherently because mind maps are graphic and visual in nature, so it is hard to convey what mind maps are, why they are useful, and how to put them to use in an audio book.

Nonetheless, this author has managed to do a superb job presenting the topic of mind maps and mind mapping. And he does it in a way that is very simple, intuitive, and easy to follow along, even on audio.

The voice of narrator is also great, he has a very engaging and inviting tone that makes listening to the learning about mind maps fun and enjoyable.

No doubt one of my favorite audio programs.

Good Book, Great Narration, Plenty of Advice

Would you listen to Mind Maps again? Why?

Definitely, this was a very informative book with lots of impressive mind mapping ideas, it far exceeded my expectations.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Mind Maps?

The section on "Recall," to use Mind Maps to trace information you've forgotten. The concept blew me away, I can see how Mind Mapping is a unique tool that can be used in this area.

Have you listened to any of Jeremy Vore’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Haven't listed to the narrator's other performances, but his narration was excellent.

What did you learn from Mind Maps that you would use in your daily life?

Most everything in the book can be applied in daily life and the author does a wonderful job showing you how.

Brilliant

I can see why this is one of the best books on mind mapping. It's a very well put together, easy to understand, and fun to learn manual. You'll not only discover all the benefits of mind maps, but their limitless applications from studying, writing, and brainstorming to planning, project management, and even learning a foreign language. You can't go wrong with this audible book, just download the supplementary pdf to follow along with the speaker and you're set.

Great intro to a great tool.

I listened to this without the accompanying book, and I still found it quite helpful. I got a little bogged down during a section on conjugating Spanish verbs to show how one might use mind maps when acquiring a new language. I would likely need to listen to that section more than once and really focus on it if I were to be able to gain the full benefit of the method for this particular application. That said, I think it would be well worth my time to study this section when I tackle my next foreign language.

The narrator was excellent and the content was well organized.

Overall a great book.

I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher
