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.
This book is truly a work of genius, and I don't say that lightly. Before this book, I would read at a tortoise pace. Not because that's all I was capable of, but because I never learned how to properly read as an adult. From just reading this book in one pass, I've increased my reading speed by at least 5 times. Not only that, but I retain more information I read because I have to maintain focus and concentration to be able to read so fast.
The tips were all simple and he uses great stories and analogies to help you understand their importance. What I like the most, and what separate this from all the other speed reading books, are the practice drills. Kam gets it, he knows that learning is not what creates change but applying what you learn and these drills help you do that. If you do the drills at the end of each chapter, by the end of the book, you're reading & comprehension will improve.
Even though English is not my native language, this was my first book that I read so fast, with just a couple of tips. I Usually struggle weeks or even months trying to finish a book, and some books that I didn't finish.
The author, Kam Knight, shares a lot of useful concepts. It took a lot of work on his part. I highly recommend this book!
