If you do a search on the terms Mind Mapping, or Mind Maps or any other terms related to this very powerful tool, you are going to find millions of pages on the internet with lots of information about all aspects of Tony Buzan’s great invention. Some of the stuff out there is dreadful, most of it is mediocre but there are some excellent web sites and web pages that are worth having a look at if you want to find out more about Mind Mapping.
Now as this site is dedicated to Mind Mapping, I’d like to think that this would be a one stop shop for you to get all you need about the how to’s, Mind Map Software, examples of Mind Maps, applications and all other related information.
However I realise that as yet this site is not as comprehensive as it could be and even if it was, you deserve to get a balanced perspective on the topic and not just “Mind Maps according to Michael”.
So what I have started to do is compile a directory of the best Mind Mapping resources I have found or have had recommended to me and will publish it here on this page (and subsequent pages if things start to overflow).
So I hope you find information of use to you and good luck with using this powerful tool.
By the way if you find a resource not listed here but is worthy of inclusion, then let me know in the comments section below. I’d also appreciate your comments on the resources you do explore and if you find any broken or out of date links.
