I don't normally give 5 stars for any book, but in this instance I must do so. Over the last 10 years, I have read all the tony buzan books and have lots on phsycology and memory, but I always struggled to learn things in a way that was not mentally cluttered. The closest I got to a working method was just simple image association, but it had no structure and was hard to really remember things long term. This book, however, helped me organise my images more logically and I have used the method of location/image association by using towns to store images in places where I know the meaning. Also, because the town is known to you (or you can even create your own), half of the work is done, unlike with learning a numbering system and learning journies for ordered items.
For the price of this book, you shouldn't think twice. Just add it to your basket and order it.

It takes me about an hour to learn a page of poetry, whereas before it was a verse a day. So it works! My children have also found it very useful. There are one or two questions that are not addressed, but with experience you can work out the answer. A number of techniques are described here for differing subjects e.g. words, number, faces etc. You do not have to learn them all. In outline they are very simple, and could each be described on one page. But it is the details and examples (of which there could be more) that are important. The benefits are both practical and psychological.

Not five stars because Dominic glosses over the fact that the techniques are hard work, but this is the best book I've come across on memory. Particularly useful are the sections on remembering names and on memorising long numbers, because his techniques are more effective and reproducible than any others I've tried. The techniques are however well worth the effort and this is a book which deserves to have stayed in print.

If you're serious about memory techniques, this is the one to go for, even if you have to search around for a copy.

They say if you want to be the best at something, then you have to go to the source of where you can aquire the skill to be the best. Dominic gives you that skill. I cannot recommend this book highly enough. I have done away with shopping lists, notes for meeting, joting down mobile numbers etc, its just not necessary. I once flabbergasted a group of friend by memorising (a binary number) 1000 sequence of zeros and ones in 25 minutes and repeating the whole number sequence to them backward and forwards 2 hours later. To this day they think I have a super charged memory. This is a hell of a book. Buy two if you have to !

I have bough and read many memory books including titles by Harry Lorayne and Tony Buzan. This is by far the easiest book to read and get good results from. Dominic mainly teaches you the Journey/location method. You must, however be prepared to put a bit of effort into it, but if you do I promise you will not be disappointed. I have amazed my friends with these 'tricks'. Buy it and you will be able to remember anything you want.
