The power and versatility of the human brain far surpasses that of any computer, indeed, it is the most complex and involved system on this planet. Yet no human being has ever come close to using its full potential.
In Part One of this handbook for brain users, Peter Russell sets out the brain's development and structure. In Part Two he examines its function and potential, discussing memory, imagery, mnemonics, the holographic theory of mind, reading and note-taking. Among the many intriguing features of the book is the rejection of the notion that our brain deteriorates after middle age.
The book introduces readers to Mind Maps using color, key words and organic structure, showing why they work and how to use them.
