I liked this book on memory and remembering by Dominic O'Brien. I have been a fan his since hearing about and managing to get hold of a copy of, How To Develop A Perfect Memory (out of print), and How to Pass Exams.
Learn to remember, is an introduction to what is discussed in more depth in the earlier two books. He does not go into as much detail about his DOMINIC system in this text, which although beautifully presented, may leave some readers wanting for detail.
If you can, I would recommend that you also try and get hold of his Linguaphone course, which is four books and twelve cassettes long. This will fill in the gaps left by 'Learn to Remember'.
My recommendation is to buy this book as an introduction to Dominic O'Brien, and the very exciting prospect that you too possess a perfect memory but have just never been shown how to use it properly

Format: Paperback
Got this book yesterday memorized the planets in two minutes and had total recall after an hour and still have. I have just memorized a pack of playing cards using the method given took about 20 mins but practice will speed this up. Altogether an excellent way to spend the weekend. This is not like a text book the exercises appear every so often among the illustrations, and at first may seem just like a story book - but if you try any of the exercises you will see the strength of this book.
The illustrations add to the book giving it the feel of a voyage through your mind. I'll just practice a bit longer on these cards then its off to Vegas!

For anyone interesting in improving their memory, this must be the book to buy. It is a pleasure to read a book written in such a clear, logical manner with wonderful illustrations. You will pick this book up again and again.
Having read a number of O'Brien's other books (all of which I have enjoyed) this is certainly the masterpiece. It covers both the working of your memory and easily applicable techniques.
I was really useless at remembering numbers and this book has somewhat changed that... In fact I was able to remember a string of numbers 100 digits long a few days after the book arriving! (Longer than most telephone numbers!!) A few weeks ago I also used the techniques for remembering an important speech - again great results and suprisingly simple.
In summary - a great read which should be on everyone's bookshelf. - Parents, buy it for your children - Children, buy it for your parents!

This is a fantastic book for anyone seeking to improve their memory.. from day to day uses such as remembering tasks, routes, etc, to learning languages and even memorizing packs of cards, the techniques are surprisingly simple and before long, you'll be using them without even realising.. everything is very well laid out, with clear explanations and memorable illustrations making this not only an essential read, but a pleasurable one too.. Thoroughly recommended!!

This is likely the best book about memory ever. Why? Because Dominic O`Briens systems are unique, brilliant and very easy to perform. He shows you everything about memory, from how to remember deck of cards to techniques that provide optimum results at exams. He also teach you how to draw mind maps. All of his techniques are explained very good and illustrations are really beautiful to look at. Obviously, no one knows more about memory systems than six times memory champion of the world, Dominc O`Brien. Buy this book today!

Quite good. The introductory stuff about the nature of memory and history of memory techniques is very interesting , but it goes on for too long before you get to the useful stuff.

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Study Shortcuts and Exam Tips from Oxford Grads on 20 April 2012
Format: Paperback
Every student should be aware of O'Brien's powerful memory techniques. Rather than trying to crowbar in boring lists of information, O'Brien teaches us how to make use of our imaginations in order to remember stuff. Our brains are playful, not mechanical. They respond much better to association and creativity, rather than to overly-structured lists. O'Brien shows us how to unlock this potential, and I believe that his approach is a very useful building-block of a successful approach to exams.
