My Summer Holiday by Will Jarrard

Description: 

This outstanding Mind Map was done by Will Jarrard when he was 16 years old on a holiday trip to the UK and Paris with father, while Jennifer was working on a contract in London.

The reference in the Mind Map to Toad Hall is our visit to Tony Buzan's office on Harleyford Manor estate, which was a model for Toad Hall in the book Wind In The Willows, which Will had read many times.

This Mind Map was presented as a gift to Tony and Jennifer, and has been seem by people all over the world. What makes this special is that at the time Will had been kicked out of school on the basis that he was not able to concentrate due to his ADHD problem. Do you think the school was the one with the problem?

All power to the

All power to the comprehensive thinking shown by Will. As an adult (48) recently diagnosed as ADD, after my boy was diagnosed ADHD, I was fortunate enough not to have too much trouble at school, apart from a severe dose of abject boredom and a desire to just scrape through with a B or C. That was enough effort to throw at what they threw at me...however, school did leave me feeling alienated and different (yep) and frankly, stupid. Lucky Will to have such fantastic support and tools.
