Mind Map a Detailed Overview In the detailed overview, you are going to do one chapter at a time. Each chapter gets its own Mind Map.

I generally spend a session on each chapter and often build up a collection of chapter overviews over the course of my study. Many people prefer to do a detailed overview at the beginning of their studies.

The choice is yours. Buzan amply provides up to date reputable research from cognitive psychology to highlight what works for the brain in cognitive tasks such as remembering, keeping flow and analysing. The mind map, he constantly reminds, is supposed to somewhat mirror what the brain is doing when it associates, remembers Also, the book practices what he preaches and is filled with colors, both in the text and with colorful and picture rich mind maps.

His guidelines are well illustrated. The book also gives light in-chapter exercises so that the point is brought home then and there. It is easy to digest with chapters seldom topping 10 pages. Here and there, Buzan plugs his iMindmap software but the plugs are localized to that chapter for the most part and not very intrusive.

For me chapters 8, on techniques, and 13 on the note taking process as a whole, including how to attack a book in waves and factoring time IN ADVANCE, were gold mines of good ideas. I wish I had this stuff when I was in school. Would have extracted more from those big textbooks. Buzan reminds us that notes are really conversations between us what we associate with the material and the author what he or she associates.

Remembering the material is just one goal of note taking, and analysis which comes from the structure of the map, for instance and creativity in adding our associations to the ideas as well as the author's also play a role while taking notes.

It's a perspective I've seldom heard and which makes sense to me. The book is filled with those insights and not just in the abstract; there are examples everywhere. My first few mind maps were, as expected, uneven and not following all guidelines but with each one and reskimming paragraphs in those two chapters, the maps improved and got better.

Revising existing maps allowed me to commit them better to memory and further pin down what the main ideas I'm building around are. All in all, I highly recommend this book for people stuck in text land and feeling something missing in how they understand the subject matter they are working with. Not sure I would have bought it without reading his earlier work. One person found this helpful.

Great condition. I thought this is a great book after I read the review and I did have high hope that I could be more creative after I master this book. I even bought the iMindMap software. I faithfully followed this book to make mind maps whenever I am pondering some thing.
