Book Summaries using Mind Maps®

Mind Maps are effective for note taking from the spoken word and note making from the written word. You’ll organise information, ideas and concepts using images and keywords to add emphasis and association to your notes. Using these images creates visual triggers that help you to remember more and recall with ease. Some people think of Mind Maps as being a little unprofessional or ‘messy’, but we find that they are a great conversation piece and amaze most people.

Here are some Mind Maps that have been produced to summarise books. We’ve sorted them into the following sections:

Some are hand drawn and some have been produced on Mind Mapping software (including Mindjet® MindManager® and Buzan’s iMindMap®). These examples are FREE for you to download and use for personal and educational purposes. We’d recommend you contact the author if you want to use them for business purposes.
