Whether hand-drawn to look like a colourful idea tree or generated using software or apps, they are meant to represent the way we think, in contrast to paragraph-based text, which is not representative of the thought process.


Mind maps have all the seduction of popular science: when they are mastered, it feels like you are in possession of a precious secret.

Your brain has two hemispheres, left and right. The left is the logical, studious side that keeps things tidy, organised and can retrieve facts from wherever they are held.

Superpowered brains Mind maps, which use both cortexes of the brain, allow us to use the usually unused 90 per cent, he posits. However those cynics point out that there is a reason we use only 10 per cent of our neurons at one time.

If we used all 86 billion of them simultaneously we would not be any cleverer. Instead, we would be dead, following a massive seizure. This, he says, is when credibility gives way to a sales pitch. But it is a sales pitch that works.

How Tony Buzan used mind maps to doodle his way to millions

His schools have accredited more than ThinkBuzan licensed instructors in Mind Mapping since So perhaps it is legitimate to doodle your way through meetings after all. Mind mapping: What is it?

All mind-maps have some things in common: they have a natural organisational structure that radiates from the centre and use lines, symbols, words, colour and images. They can look like a tree or a series of pathways. To visualise how it works, think of a map of a city. The city centre is the main idea.

The roads branches leading from the centre are the key thoughts in your thinking process. The secondary roads smaller branches are your secondary thoughts.

But a mind map is more than just a different organization.

Mind maps build on ideas from learning theory and memory research by harnessing and combining multiple senses and skills like colors, images, and words. Buzan does a good job of presenting the problems that mind maps solve and explains the rules of mind mapping, which are more like a supporting set of principles. So far, I've been quite positive in my review.

But the book has a few problems.

The most obvious is the final chapter, which reads like a sales brochure for the mind mapping software company that Buzan owns. To me, it would have made a better case if Buzan had included a slight touch of critical thinking; digitalizing mind maps must involve some trade-offs and that discussion is sadly absent in the book.

Further, the organization of the book is disappointing.

For someone preaching the importance of involving multiple senses in a learning experience, it's surprising that the book has such a traditional layout. I mean, take a look at the Head First concept.

That's brilliant and engaging.

Putting rules in a PowerPoint-style bullet-list is not. On the plus side, Buzan includes several truly beautiful mind maps. But there are more serious problems with the book than its layout. Buzan makes a lot of strong statements for examples, read the back-cover where mind maps promise to "dramatically improve your intelligence, creativity, communication, concentration and memory".Paperback , pages.
