I found in Adam’s mind maps a clarity that sometimes eludes me when reading books or articles. The playfulness of his work engages my brain completely. I received the value of my lifetime membership right from the beginning.  The past 3 years have been a gift for which I’m continuously grateful.”

Adam's mind maps are a vital key and an essential value-add to your library.  When you invest in them you are investing in yourself and in the lives of all those you influence, and it will give back in ways that far exceed your initial investment.”

"It's not who you are that holds you back. It's who you think you're not."


Each IQ Matrix represents a cluster of thoughts about a single topic. It’s like a neuron network of interconnected thoughts where you meticulously explore the brain of someone who has successfully mastered the topic. You then take those thought clusters and implant them into your own brain as you use the map. Kind of like a software upgrade for your brain.


Each map effectively categorizes the most important and actionable ideas about a topic into conveniently digestible chunks. It uses keywords and questions in a sentence-like structure that’s easy to follow and understand.


Each map uses a combination of keywords, colors and images designed in an organic radial-like structure that naturally helps improve memory while encouraging photographic recall of the information you are exploring.​


Each map provides you with a comprehensive bird’s eye view of the topic. Subsequently, you gain deeper insights as you're better able to recognize how various ideas are interlinked together to form the whole topic.​
