The title says it all: “How to Take Smart Notes: One Simple Technique to Boost Writing, Learning and Thinking – for Students, Academics and Nonfiction Book Writers”. I’m reading it and I think it’s a precious book on how to read, organise and structure your thoughts about what you read and especially how to use and make non evident connections among things you’ve learned. It’s having a profound impact on the way I work (I’m an academic). I wish I had found this book earlier. If Joe and Mike will ever pick this book up for the Bookworm podcast, I’m curious to see what effect this will have on Mike’s MindNode book notes.
