What is a Mind Map?
This is a question I keep on forgetting to answer because being so close to the topic it is easy to forget that not everyone knows what a Mind Map is or indeed may never even have heard of it.

- Main Branches (the main themes)
- Smaller Sub-Branches (the detail)
- All of the above drawn in colour
That is it. So the answer to the question “What is a Mind Map?” is simply that.
But a better question to ask might be “Why bother using a Mind Map?”
