You could then explore his Mind Map Principles more easily and decide for yourself what you would like to use.
This product is priced under $10, as it is intended to introduce you to the concept of Learning with a Mind Map Tutor. As a by-product, you also learn about how to improve your brain power. Use the Mind Maps to explore the Ebook, or use the Ebook to explore the Mind Maps. Add your own thoughts, ideas and resources to put yourself in the centre of the learning process.
Hamlet is Shakespeare's longest, and one of his most complex, plays. It is also his most popular one. Based on our success with Othello, we have decided to continue with the Shakespeare legacy.
Learn Hamlet in an interactive, intuitive way and add your own notes and thoughts directly in the Mind Maps.
So, if you are a student, or teacher, of Hamlet, get hold of our Mind Map Tutor now and explore Hamlet like never before.
This is our most popular product and provides a Ten Step Program divided into Four Sections that gets you learning faster and easier. The program takes you through four important stages:
Having a good knowledge of English Grammar is essential for all learners, if your learning medium is English. If English is not your mother-tongue, then this is also a great guide for you. The Interactive Mind Maps allow you to add your own examples and thoughts, making you the centre of the learning process, which is the best way to learn.

I am very active in the online Mind Mapping community, you will get updates and links to important information as I come across it.
Twitter is the fastest way to get information into the market. If you haven't tried Twitter yet, give it a go. The great thing about Twitter is that you only have to read what you want to, as it just gives you the headlines. The information also comes to you, so you are only receiving information that you want to receive.
If you don't like the source - kill it, and it's instantly removed.
Twitter can be a great time saver to give you the information when you want it and how you want it.
We publish all of our Blog feeds to Twitter so that you can simply browse the headlines and only visit the page if you like what you see.
7. Focus of the month - Incorporating Mind Maps into Your Daily LifeMany of you may have heard about Mind Maps, used Mind Maps at some stage, or think that it is a great idea, but do not use them on a daily basis.
Are you one of them?
If you are, I suggest that you give it another go. Choose an area that is giving you the most pain and where you think Mind Maps may be useful. Put a plan in place to start using Mind Maps in this area.
Are you going to use software? If you are, is it going to be on your Computer or your Tablet? Are you going to use paper based Mind Maps? What size paper are you going to use? Is it going to be in colour? Get some coloured pens.
Now make a concerted effort to use Mind Maps for 30 Days in the area that you have chosen. This is the common belief on how long it takes to create a new habit.
Also read how other People are using Mind Maps. Follow our Facebook Page, or my Tweets. I constantly post updates on how others are using Mind Maps.
After 30 Days, review your effort and ask yourself what worked and what didn’t. Put a plan in place to use the good parts and discard, or work on, the bad parts.
Now tackle the next area of your life.
This small effort could be life-changing.
Do it now!
Use our Contact Form to send in your questions.
My goal is to help you use Mind Maps more effectively at work, in business, in education and in your personal life.
There should be enough free information on our website and blog for you to understand the concepts and principles. I only charge for our Mind Map Tutor products, which are in-depth Mind Maps of selected topics and act as guided tutorials.
