Learn Anything And Everything. Starting Now.

Install Knowledge Into Your Brain Using The Very Same Memory Technique Used By The World's Top Memorizers.

  • What if you were suddenly granted the ability to download and install vast sums of knowledge into your brain...

  • What would you learn if you discovered your memory bank wasn't a tiny cupboard but was in fact an enormous warehouse?

  • What would you learn if you could cram your mind full of facts and figures?

  • How many people could you impress with your encyclopaedic knowledge of a subject they assume you know nothing about?

  • Are you studying for an exam and want a better way to remember important information?

Starting here, with the list of Shakespeare's 37 plays (in chronological order of course), and the novels of Charles Dickens, you will learn how to commit endless amounts of data to memory. Half an hour from the instant you start reading this book you will be able to recite, forwards and backwards, the titles of all of Shakespeare's plays... BUT THIS IS JUST THE BEGINNING.

Through actual demonstration, you will have mastery of a technique that will allow you to do this with any topic of your choosing.

The Memory Grand Masters

The Memory Palace technique of memorizing is at least 2500 years old and relies solely on utilising your brain's natural strengths. Also known as the Journey Method, or the Method of Loci, the Memory Palace technique is used by every top memorizer in the world.

Inspired by the teachings of top memorizers, 'The Memory Palace' is your introduction and practical guide to storing and retrieving anything in that beautiful head of yours.

EXTRACT from "The Memory Palace - Learn Anything And Everything"

"Do you know all of Charles Dickens' novels? Do you know all of Shakespeare's plays? Do you know the world's longest rivers? The most-populated countries? Can you name every President the United States has ever had? Can you list the entire British Monarchy all the way back in time to 757AD? Can you reel off the geological time periods? Can you name every 'Best Picture' Oscar Winning Movie since 1928? Can you reproduce the Periodic Table of Elements if asked to do so?

If not, why not?

Well, probably because you haven't fed the information into your brain in a way it can remember.

Instead of having memories "in there somewhere", with everything in your head swirling around like a shaken cocktail, you will have an organised library of information. Learning in this way means when you come to recall something, you go to exactly where that memory is stored inside your head. You can even look around at the related memories.

A Memory Palace makes memories accessible, clear, vivid, and most importantly, unforgettable."

5.0 out of 5 stars Nice intro to memory techniques 9 Jun 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is a great introduction to the "Journey" memory method. Within 30 minutes I'd learnt the 37 plays of Shakespeare. The next day I spent another 30 minutes learning the 20 novels of Charles Dickens. I can now recite these in order. The book is short, and doesn't explain the process. However, it gave me the confidence to research the subject further. If you like this then definitely buy Ed Cooke's "Remember, Remember: Learn the Stuff You Thought You Never Could".

5.0 out of 5 stars Nothing new 25 Mar 2013
By A human
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This isn't a groundbreaking new discovery - in fact this memory system has been around for centuries - but it packages the idea well and yes, I can now recite the plays of Shakespeare and the complete novels of Dickens in order. However as somebody who doesn't produce the most vivid visualisations, I can't say how long this knowledge will hold. If I practised daily of course it would definitely hold, so a 5* review from me. Quite a funny book too. But it is short, thus the cheap price.

5.0 out of 5 stars It works! 25 Jan 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I read this book with some scepticism as I can usually memorise lists fairly quickly and easily, but I found that the important improvement that this book gave me was that I could remember the lists for longer and I could remember more things in a single list. The only drawback to this technique which is not mentioned in the book, is the need to have a clear view in your mind of the 'way points' of your 'journey' otherwise the images you imagine can end up in the wrong order or if you have several images at the same way point then its easy to miss out one element when you recite the list. I also liked the suggested lists for memorization at the end of the book - a very handy list of things to remember.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing 27 Dec 2012
By Penance
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Surprisingly brilliant!! As I was reading through the story thinking I will never remember all 37 plays I was shocked to realise that when I went back through the story in my head the images that I created help me remember the plays all 37, and now I have the technique to learn and remember what I want

5.0 out of 5 stars Probably the best start for memory improvement. 11 Nov 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Other books on this subject tend to give outlines of how to remember; but The Memory Palace actually gives a specific example of how to do it . It shows, stage by stage, how to remember the chronological order of the Works of Shakespeare (which is remarkably easy), thereby showing you what can be achieved in such a short space of time. I followed it up with the Works of Dickens, all the American Presidents and all the U.S. States, all in one evening! And I can still remember them on the following day! Other books also tend to concentrate on remembering numbers and playing cards etc, whereas The Memory palace keeps it simple and concentrates on the job in hand! Well worth the small price!

4.0 out of 5 stars Amazing, but short. 8 Sep 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I love this book. After reading 'Moonwalking with Einstein' I decided to venture forth into the realms of remembering.

I found this book by checking out the related section of the Kindle app, it suggested this, so I downloaded a sample.
After reading all that I could, I immediately purchased it.

The book teaches you simply how to remember the works of Shakespeare and Charles Dickens' book names. In order, forwards and backwards.

It does this step by step, and is very easy to understand.

Brilliant way to learn the chronological order of Shakespeare's plays. The technique works amazingly well with a minimal effort and time. One read through was enough to learn the list.
