Mind maps make it easy to create a table of contends for your brand-building book. Visit my "3 Steps to writing Success" blog post which shows a simple way to organizing your ideas before you start to write. The key is to organize your book as a 3-act plan, with a beginning, middle, and an end. Perhaps you can model the example, shown, as a template for planning your book.


  
To get a better idea of how mind maps can simplify writing a complex project, like a 462 page book, here are PDF's of 3 maps of Guy Kawasaki's latest book, Reality Check. The first map shows just the main topics, or sections, of the book. The second map expands one of the sections, to show the chapters associated with a single topic. The third map expands the map to show all of the chapters. Download the maps of Guy Kawasaki's Reality Check here.

Published & Profitable members can access dozens of MindManager maps showing the contents of published nonfiction books. These help authors better understand a book's structure in terms of sections, chapters, and page counts.

These help authors evaluate existing competition, prepare content and marketing plans, and prepare new business proposals. You can review available maps and templates here.
