'This book has lots of different types of concept maps, flow diagrams and linear maps to show how information can be represented in a way that suits different learning styles. It also represents the same information (on digestion for example) in different ways using different maps/lists and demonstrates how each one can be used at different stages of the learning process, adding complexity. For example using exam style written answers using colour to highlight areas on the maps. As the student becomes more confident in their understanding and recall they can use different maps or use examples presented as Inspiration.'
