Review by ylferif
In The Mind Map Book, Tony and Barry Buzan argue that our minds have infinite potential which is being stifled by common linear, verbal outlining and note-taking techniques. Enter mind maps, specialized diagrams which take advantage of the brain’s natural desire to associate ideas and to do so with colors and images rather than just words. According to the subtitle, mind mapping will “unlock your creativity, boost your memory and change your life”. The Buzans do a good job of laying out the general principles of mind mapping and provide lots of colorful examples. I have dutifully purchased colored pens and am diagramming everything from to-do lists to books to PowerPoint presentations to this book review, but have yet to feel that I am substantially more creative than I was previously, and life goes on as ever. Without someone to review and correct my methodology, it’s hard to know if I’m giving mind mapping a fair trial.Still, The Mind Map Book is an easy to follow introduction to an engaging approach to increased productivity, creativity and learning.
