Hint #7 & Idea Map #12 - A Picture is Worth a Thousand Words

Today's postings are a double whammy! I am going to contrast two idea maps. They contain identical data, but one of them also includes images. These maps were created in MindManager by Vickie Flis. She wanted to prove to her sons that you could create a map of a book. She read John Maxwell's book, Dare to Dream Then Do It, and then created these maps. Above is the map WITHOUT images. The other entry today is the same idea map WITH images.

I have heard some business people claim that pictures aren't necessary. Maybe not in all cases, but I would really have to think hard to find a scenario where images didn't provide a benefit in some way. But then that's me. What do you think? Which one do you prefer?
