Mind Mapping - Still Can't Get It!

I've read books, attended Tony Buzan's course, but still cant seem to get it. What could I be doing wrong? I know mind mapping can be very helpful, it just hasn't worked for me... (yet). Please advise.

Learning to Use Mindmapping

Hi Henrik, I find it difficult to expand from the main idea. For example, if I start with the word "book", there are so many possible associations for book that I feel like am swimming in a ocean, without the right tool to navigate in the right direction. It's just too vast.
As for the association (represented by the arrows), do we have to write the association type? I often find it hard to find the appropriate action word to describe the mind map, maybe this is not an issue with the mind mapping itself, but what can I do to improve this shortcoming?
