Yesterday I had an email from a dear colleague in Japan, William Reed. In addition to telling me about his new blog, William mentioned that he noticed that the Idea Mapping Book was just released in Japanese and he was able to purchase a copy. Here is the Amazon link to order the book in English, and the Amazon link to order the book in Japanese. The publisher is Hankyu Communications Company, and the translation was done by Tokyu Communications.

William says that the hand-drawn maps are in English and many in COLOR! The MindManager maps have been translated into Japanese with some in English.

Only two blogs ago I was mentioning that I had no idea on the release dates. If it weren’t for William I wouldn’t even know this. The MindManager trial CD in Japanese is not included in the book (see the Japanese Mindjet website to download a trial versions).
