In this book, the author stretches the traditional boundary of mindmapping as created by Tony Buzan in his many proprietary 'Mindmapping' books since the mid-70s. The author breaks some traditional 'Mindmapping' rules in the process, which she now calls 'Mindscaping.' This enables the reader to exercise the untapped and unlimited potential of the mind to create new working maps in the process of learning and thinking. I find Tony Buzan somewhat structured in his proprietary approach, and it is good that Nancy has done an excellent job to take a refreshing and 'out-of-the-box' approach to traditional mindmapping. This gives much more meaning to the mindmapping process as it should be in the first place, and now makes it much easier to learn and apply in the real world. For beginners, Nancy's book is also a great help as she shows how to do simple iconic pictures. You will find that Mindscaping is more fun than mind-mapping. For more interesting ideas,I would recommend readers to buy and read Milli Sonnenman's Beyond Words, which showcases some business applications. Kathy Mason's Going Beyond Words and David Hyerle's Visual Tools for Constructing Knowledge are also worth pursuing, especially if you are in the teaching/academic environment.Was this review helpful?
