Book Description

7 Jun 2012
In this highly original publishing package Dominic O'Brien reveals the secrets of mastering the art of memory and provides us with a basic tool kit for boosting our skills of memorization and recall. The kit consists of three components: a 88-page introduction to memory techniques that reveals the what, the why and the how of Dominic's proven methods; a pictorial memory journey map to be used in conjunction with the Journey Method, a basic and highly versatile memorization procedure that exploits the power of mental association to provide unforgettable cues for recall; and, lastly, a deck of 50 flash cards providing tips and techniques (and self-testing exercises) on one side, and, on the other, numbers and drawn objects to practise on, using the journey map or other tricks of the trade described in the book. The key to improving your memory is two-fold: knowing the expert methods devised by one of the most retentive and focused brains in the world, and practising them until you see marked improvements in your performance. This tool kit is all you'll need to train yourself to be a memory maestro.

5.0 out of 5 stars BEST MEMORY IMPROVEMENT SYSTEM 9 Mar 2013
Format:Cards|Verified Purchase
The "Dominic System" laid out in this package, with the assistance especially for beginners of learning materials, is, for me, by far the most natural and user-friendly method of memorising or working with strings of numbers and letters because it is based upon:
1. people and actions, which are endlessly more interesting than the systems of, say, Tony Buzan or Dr Bruno Furst which are largely based upon objects;
2. an interchangeable number-letter code that couldn't be easier to pick up or rerefer to as, unlike other much more confusing and working-against-oneself systems I am aware of such as Buzan, pmemory or Furst, it pretty much follows the order of first ten letters of the English alphabet
(for these two crucial reasons, my book MEMORY PALACE DEFINTIVE and all future ones I am working on are compatible with and expand upon Dominic's number-letter code and System. I also recommend Dominic's HOW TO DEVELOP A BRILLIANT MEMORY WEEK BY WEEK as my standard text on memory improvement in my chapter on both this subject and developing fluid intelligence in the Pat Wyman-edited book AMAZING GRADES).

Product was a great compliment to the book (also sold on Amazon.com). The series helped my study techniques for my pre-med major and also helped to improve my personal relationships with friends and family because I no longer forget birthdays and special dates! Product exceeded my expectations!
5.0 out of 5 stars Great book. 22 Jun 2014
By Jeff Epperly - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Cards|Verified Purchase
Small enough to fit in your pocket (not counting the 52 flash cards that come with it). Very concise and informative.

There are tons of self help books out there, but how many are written by a guy that has won the World Memory Championship eight or more times?

The Journey Method works (it was developed by the ancient greeks... fyi) and Dominic's tips on how to use it, along with techniques on how to store different types of information at each stage of a journey, have definitely helped reduce the learning curve.

I bought two more copies and gave them to my niece and nephew. I wish I had found this before I went to college, instead of 15 years later (I even took a Study Skills class my freshman year and they never mentioned the Journey Method once).

If you like this one, his other books are definitely worth checking out too.
