5.0 out of 5 stars Practical and effective 20 July 2010
By zrtf90
This is a practical and readable book. It doesn't have the scientific research behind it as Higbee's book (or similar) but this is a very usable book without having to bother with why or how it works.

These methods do work and don't require any specific talents. I expected Lorayne to tell me how he did it with a 'but don't expect to be able to copy me' catch but these methods really work and have helped me with many life skills.

5.0 out of 5 stars As good as the rest 19 Nov 2005
By A Customer
I first read this book over 20 years ago. I believe the author is a famous magician /memory man & I did see him once on Parkinson years ago. He uses all the techniques that Buzan, O'Brien etc use - Peg & Link, Visualisation, Pnemonics, Memorising Numbers, cards, faces etc and this book is a fraction of the price(I can't remember if he used mind maps though). It might seem a little out of date and more geared to a North American reader but it's cheap as chips!

4.0 out of 5 stars Now why did I buy this....? 22 Mar 2012
By A.Ward
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is a book originally published in 1958, with this edition from 1986, so I'd guess it's kind-of longevity has something to do with useful content!

Over the time since publication I'd expect there to be some perspective changes, but the essentials are the develop a better memory. A brief look at the content points to the use of common sense, but it's amazing how we can hone our mind simply by highlighting some aspect by writing it down.
