I used to read the adverts in the papers for years about how you can improve your memory.

The first memory book was by Harry Lorayne and I have had it since the mid sixties.

I recently bought this series but a slightly later version.

It is much the same as the Harry Lorayne version but it is a facinating read as it is set out as a course.

You are encouraged to read each session and there are 12 of them slowly as you have to assimilate the knowledge like a correspondence course.

All the basic techniques are there the, link method and the number code. It is the number code that I have the most difficulty learning as I have agreat probvlems with numbers as they mean nothing to me.

I am coming to an age where I am having more diffculty remembering and this is just the ticket.

I love this series and I take it everywhere with me. I have a couple of the sessions in my work bag and the others I leave in my office.

If you are a fan of self improvement, which I am, this is the starting point. I note in the copyright page that the good doctor starting producing this stuff in 1939.

A great read

Excellent! 26 Nov. 2013

I took Dr. Furst's course many years ago and I have used those techniques he taught again and again in both my private and professional life. Now, I am beginning to find out, his techniques and methods are being taught by more and more professional educators under different names. I was impressed by Dr. Furst's course and HIGHLY recommend it to anyone who has ever thought they had any memory problems.

"IQ of 145 and Can't Remember?" 16 Jun. 2009
By Theseus - Published on
Format: Paperback
That was the headline hovering above a harsh professorial dude, staring at you with scorn in post-war print ads.

Dr. Bruno Furst began his work in Germany but eventually scored big in America with his home study course.

Sometimes in 10 volumes, sometimes in 12 volumes, always in slipcase, Furst adapted and "revised" his work over the years.

He always offered a wide array of memory techniques and tricks (associating names with faces, number memorization, memory while playing cards, memory of visual images, remembering lists, remembering sports statistics, "Eyemindedness," "Earmindedness," etc.) peppered with vintage cartoons, photos, and commercial illustrations. All of his sets contained Examinations, Model Answers, and (apparently) the miniature paperback Number Dictionary.

Clearly, a camp classic. Does it work? I have no idea.
