make sure to practice

If you could sum up Mind Mapping in three words, what would they be?

I thought mind maps were over rated until this book. There is a lot you can do with them. I mean, you can essentially replace linear form of thinking with this method.

Any additional comments?

Be aware, it does take practice or getting use to, which is the challenge of doing anything new in life. Just because it is more useful and helpful doesn't mean you won't need plenty of practice. I recommend practicing on ancillary or non-relevant tasks just to get your mind in the habit of thinking this way...then on the real tasks, it'll be easier to use.

the author has done his home work

It's a very extensive and thorough book, probably more thorough than any thing I've come across on mind mapping. Some of the advice is a bit of a stretch to use like for lists, but all in all, presents useful ideas.

time for revivial

Everyone talks about how our parents and educational system kill our mental ability and creativity. I strongly believe that is true, but in many ways it's necessary as it helps us think and act in ways that is conducive to a functioning society. We can't all be jagged, uneven, abnormal in our thinking and communication, not only would we not understand each other but nothing would get done. At the same time, once we can start acting, behaving, and thinking in a functional way, it is important to connect back to that creative and super imaginative, intelligent self. After listening to this audio, I believe mind mapping is a great way to do that. It can help you connect with your more bright, gifted, talented self, while still being functional.

Very Great

This e-book is great to read and to apply as I am an In-House Trainer I always looking for all the update ideas to improve my students & colleagues. The e-book has many ideas to inspire your mind and drives you to try to apply in your work activities. I recommend it to everyone who is trying to think about a new idea to teach to review the book or the PDF with the audible one so he/she can find an inspiration technique to apply.

Many Faces of Mind Maps

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I didn't realize how many ways mind mapping can be used. I thought it was just for note taking and some brainstorming, but yea, there is a lot and I think Kam does well to cover all the uses, with not perfect, but still really good examples and case studies.

If you are in school, I recommend chapters 3, 4, 5 and 7 for ample advice on taking notes, learning, research, and writing.

Chapters 6, 8, and 12 presents useful ideas for professionals or in a business environment. Chapter 12 is fantastic on group mind mapping that has been effective with my team at work.

For creative people, found chapter 11 on thematic projects interesting…I’m not involved in any creative disciplines, but after reading, made me want to try.

If you’ve got little ones, chapter 16, 17, 18 on mind mapping with children offers some of the best ways to make learning easy and fun for children.

Not all the uses fit my need, but still all around good resource for what you might be trying to manage with mind mapping.

a lot to mind mapping

Would you listen to Mind Mapping again? Why?

I had done a bit of mind mapping before, got this book to learn some better ways to mind map. Didn't realize there was so much to this technique. It's not just for note taking and studying as I once thought, but for just about any task or activity. It works with groups as well as this book describes. I don't think one person needs all these uses, but there'll definitely be some that improve the way you do things
