Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
This idea-rich, relentlessly upbeat manual proffers graphic images as an aid to unlock creative thinking or clarify emotions. Drawing loosely on brain research, learning theory and information science, English business consultant/TV personality Tony Buzan Use Both Sides of Your Brain and his brother Barry, a professor of international studies, first outline ``radiant thinking,'' a method designed to enhance one's associative, nonlinear thought processes. Next they explain how to create ``mind maps''-colorful, structured, drawings, cartoonish or complex-as a tool to overcome mental blocks, organize ideas, brainstorm, strengthen one's memory and imagination, and make meetings more productive. Despite its inflated claims and cluttered presentation, this unusual how-to, replete with exercises, quizzes, dramatic color photos of patterns in nature, and sample mind maps, will challenge and stimulate the open-minded. Sept.
From Barnes & Noble

    Great tool for visual thinkers.

    After discovering at the age of 39 that I was a)dyslexic, and b) pegging the meters in visual thinking, I bought this book to maximize and leverage my visual thinking abilities. The techniques I learned in this book have unleashed a flood of creative and logical thinking that has (among other things) allowed me to quit my day job and start a business of my own. If you're strong in visual thinking, what you learn from this book will amaze you. If you're not so strong in visual thinking, this book will help you build your visual thinking muscles, and help you tap into a very powerful place in your brain. The only thing I would suggest when going through this book is not to get too caught up in all the intricate variations of mind-mapping techniques, unless your own mind takes you there. If you try to do all of them, you'll get bogged down. Keep it simple and just use the techniques that are most useful to you.

    Near the beginning Tony tells what lead to him writing the book.

    Near the beginning Tony tells what lead to him writing the book. Tony was searching for knowledge of how understand, direct and control his own mind.

    He went on to study Psychology, Biology, and Focusing techniques. Along the way he found many of the flaws in how the educational systems works. Many of his students quickly realized they had been deprived of any knowledge of what learning actually means, or how to learn.

    The Mind Mapping System is for anyone who wants to work the controls on their own mind.
