3.0 out of 5 stars Should be titled: WHAT to remember. 31 May 2002
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
There are exactly 33 pages on memory technique in this book. It must have taken Mr. Buzan a couple of hours to put together, considering almost all of this information is presented in parts of his other books.
The rest of the book is a short story, and twelve chapters of knowledge to remember. I really dont think this is such a bad idea, but the book should have been titled accordingly. If you would like a list of things to remember in order to improve your general knowledge of the world, these chapters fit the bill.
IMPORTANT NOTE: If you are trying to learn a language, DO NOT use the langauge chapter of this book! I speak Spanish, and can say that there are a number of errors in the Spanish section alone. Goodness knows how many errors their may be in the section on Chinese or Russian!!

3.0 out of 5 stars Amazing yet badly researched book 12 Dec 2006
Format:Paperback
I have lots of very particular things to say about this book so brace your self for a bit of a read. I almost want to give this book two separate reviews - one with 5 stars and one with a lot less. When I first bought this book, I found the "major memory system" pretty advanced so I read `Use your memory' and then came back to this. The memory systems in both are great and they have assisted me in numerous feats, like remembering pin numbers and passing exams, and I think Mr. Buzan has provided a great wealth of knowledge to the world. However I find some of the claims a bit lofty and I have a number of criticisms.

1. I have a very bad basic memory and haven't found that it has improved much at all. I think you need a good basic memory before you can `Master your memory'. I have personally found the claims that memory training can improve your basic memory to be untrue (even though I do believe in the overall idea that brain excercise is very beneficial).

With lots of hard work and practice I have memorised all the countries, capitals and currencies of the world, details about 100 painters/paintings, 100 Spanish words, Pi to 1000 decimal places, and the Periodic table of elements. This is actually fun in an odd way and kind of addictive too. It is also a great way to pass time on the bus, or keep your brain occupied while waiting for the bus. However, I still have a very bad basic memory (e.g. I just had to look up what that thing with all the chemical elements was called!)

2. I wouldn't dream of trying to memorize a phone number on the spot. I'd still grab a pen. Again I think you need a good basic memory to hold it in your head long enough to use a memory system to memorize it.

Format:Paperback
The first 50 pages provide a fantastic framework that readers, who are prepared to really work at it, can use to develop their memory skills to unimaginable levels. The rest of this 185-page book consists of facts that readers can memorise! I would have liked Tony Buzan to provide the reader more with a lot more examples as to how the techniques can be used to memorise different types of information. I really struggled with this but perhaps it was written like this in order to force the reader to develop their own style rather than simply copying someone elses, which might have limited their horizons.

2.0 out of 5 stars very disappointing 11 Mar 2002
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
The first 34 pages of this 200 page book (2nd edition) are excellent. They contain a couple of examples which instantly allow you to apply the techniques to real areas of your life such as memorising shopping lists of 10 items or less. And I shall never again forget the order of the planets in the Solar System.
However, the rest of the pages simply contain lists for you to memorise. I was very disappointed with this because I had expected a lot more tuition and exercises to help get to grips with applying the unfamiliar methods in everyday life.
This book is not a tutorial - it tells you the basic concept in the first 34 pages and then expects you to go away and memorize the basic foundation. The jump between being given this foundation and being expected to apply it in the next chapter was huge for me. A step by step tutorial with lots of exercises would have been far more useful than list upon list of facts which you can get from any encyclopaedia.
The books contains several references to other books he has written and I was left with the distinct unpalatable impression that much information was purposely left out because the author wants you to buy his other books for the missing info.
I won't be buying his other books but I will carry on with attempting to master the technique on my own and hopefully, I will be able to come back at a later date to say how I silly I was to give such a negative review.

5.0 out of 5 stars The System is Pure Genius! 23 Oct 2002
By Simon
Format:Paperback
Master Your Memory culminates above all Self Improvement books, very entertaining written, he gives you 1000's of facts that will set you in good steed; i.e. learn the entire periodic table with ease, learn about the top 100 artists, writers, countries and their capitals, vocabulary, composers, facts of all the planets and their weights, orbits, distances from the sun e.t.c all with fun and the greatness of ease.
There's just one catch........ you won't be able to use this book unless you buy his marvel "USE YOUR MEMEORY", which teaches you HOW to do all this ( read my review ), and that's the reason the other reviewers have rated this book satisfactory, I know I've not once regretted buying it!
Truly Amazing!
