Seeing the transformational impact it had on people, he has been spreading the thinking tool across the world ever since.

"Much progress results when different streams of human understanding are brought together. This book is about such an epiphany - that the traditionally left-brain working of industry can be greatly enriched by the creative potential of mind-maps. Our process-oriented industries need more creativity... so it is definitely worth investing some time to evaluate this book and its thesis for yourself!" -Manas Fuloria, Co-founder and CEO, Nagarro "Project management is typically associated with linear thinking with a beginning, a middle and an end. Mind Maps are associated with Creativity and non-linear thinking. When an expert in both areas - PMP, Scrum Master and a Thinkbuzan tutor- brings this expertise together in one book, it tickles the left and right side of the brain simultaneously. Maneesh has written a compelling thesis and is a must read for CXOs and project managers alike, to get the most out of projects!" -Sameer Garde, President, South Asia, Philips India "While solving complex problems we may have a difficulty in looking at all perspectives of the eventual solution. Mind Maps help in documenting our thoughts in a more structured way by aligning the creative thinking process with the analytical decision process. This expertise was so far not available in India and the initiative by Maneesh is a welcome and valuable contribution. This is especially useful for mid-level and senior people but can be used by all age groups." -Tushar Bhatia, Founder & CEO, EmpXtrack "Just as the LEAN movement transformed the Manufacturing industry, Mind Maps can do the same to the field of Project Management. A Mind Map helps cuts across the noise in multiple situations, brings into focus the core issue and ignites creativity through whole brain thinking. Through this book Maneesh has provided a framework and examples to apply Mind Mapping to the practice of Project Management - a bold move that will encourage creative thinking and problem solving. A must read for organizational heads and all project managers." - Nitin Kulkarni, Founder & Principal Consultant, Elevo Consulting "The book is a Project management and Mind Maps toolkit coming from a practicing professional and trainer Maneesh Dutt. It is a guide map for decision makers to enable project professionals become more creative and innovative in managing projects. Projects, today, are more like a hundred meter sprint than a marathon and deserve nimble techniques like Mind Maps to execute better. The book picks up the threads from project management fundamentals along with inspiration from nature and provides a rich array of Mind Map templates allowing organizations to kick start their journey towards better project management. A real boon to organizations that are involved in any Project activity!" -Gaurang Joshipura, Managing Director, Zeppelin Systems India Pvt. Ltd.

Since Dr. Brizendine wrote The Female Brain ten years ago, the response has been overwhelming. This New York Times bestseller has been translated into more than thirty languages, has sold nearly a million copies between editions, and has most recently inspired a romantic comedy starring Whitney Cummings and Sofia Vergara. And its profound scientific understanding of the nature and experience of the female brain continues to guide women as they pass through life stages, to help men better understand the girls and women in their lives, and to illuminate the delicate emotional machinery of a love relationship. Every brain begins as a female brain. It only becomes male eight weeks after conception, when excess testosterone shrinks the communications center, reduces the hearing cortex, and makes the part of the brain that processes sex twice as large. Louann Brizendine, M.D. is a pioneering neuropsychiatrist who brings together the latest findings to show how the unique structure of the female brain determines how women think, what they value, how they communicate, and whom they’ll love. Brizendine reveals the neurological explanations behind why • A woman remembers fights that a man insists never happened • A teen girl is so obsessed with her looks and talking on the phone • Thoughts about sex enter a woman’s brain once every couple of days but enter a man’s brain about once every minute • A woman knows what people are feeling, while a man can’t spot an emotion unless somebody cries or threatens bodily harm • A woman over 50 is more likely to initiate divorce than a man Women will come away from this book knowing that they have a lean, mean communicating machine. Men will develop a serious case of brain envy.
