The authors are immensely gifted and talented people who are able to put across their stories and ideas with great clarity.

3.0 out of 5 stars Memory Book 15 July 2004
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
I would not recommend this book unless you are unfamiliar with the concepts of mnemonics and basic memory ideas. The only new memory technique I learnt here was the Peg system (and this I have never used). A good read, and interesting if you cannot remember people's names.
A good little book, but if you know the very fundamentals of memory techniques please look elsewhere.

5.0 out of 5 stars THE BEST BOOK ON MEMORY! 20 Dec 2006
By A. Shah
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Never mind what the other people say about this book, this book deserves to be THE classic memory book of all time! A big thumbs up to Harry for making everything so clear and easy to understand. Right from the start, you are invited to try out the systems for yourselevs instead of passively reading about the principles. I really enjoyed trying out the link system, which was extremely easy to use, all thanks to the way harry makes things sooooooo easy to understand.
