Having never been overly concerned with memory improvement I recently found a job for which I have to remember hundreds of names, a hugely daunting prospect.
As part of my training all employees attended a memory improvement seminar, one of the techniques outlined in this book. The lecture was incredibly boring, but despite 'switching off' for a good portion I was surprised with how much I was able to remember. After a good deal of research I was directed to this book and I couldn't be happier. The Memory Palace is thorough, succinct and digestible, it works both as a 'cover-to-cover' read and a book to 'dip' into. Smile's writing style is entertaining and engaging, he illuminates a dry subject to produce an entertaining and captivating read.
Highly recommended for those interested in memory improvement techniques.
