4.0 out of 5 stars Helpful, 5 May 2011
One of the several books I have read about memory improvement methods. I could say it was helpful and interesting to read. There are simple techniques you can learn from this book that will help you to memorize a lots of things. Also I can recommend to buy another useful book called Memo: The Easiest Way to Improve Your Memory to get better results.


Moonwalking with Einstein: The Art and Science of Remembering Everything
Moonwalking with Einstein: The Art and Science of Remembering Everything
by Joshua Foer
Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars Worth your time, 5 May 2011
Good book concerning memory improvement and methods operating since ancient times. This splendid story twisted with science, philosophy, theory and history. But it is not only about memorization techniques and scientific studies. I liked the idea that memory and creativity are connected. Here is another really good book: Memo: The Easiest Way to Improve Your Memory
Foer's writing is pretty funny ,definitely well worth reading, interesting and quick.

5.0 out of 5 stars This book is really helpful, 28 April 2011
This book saved my life! I was totally desperate before my language
exam. I needed to remember a lot of words and information. But
everything I tried to store inside my head just disappeared in few
days and I needed to learn it again and again. It was definitely easy
just to go and shoot myself. But friend of mine kindly stopped me and
recommended to read a book called "Memo". It was so easy and
interesting and I decided to use this technique just for fun. I had a
long list of words I couldn't remember and tried to visualize every
word. It was really funny to place strange people and items to
different places!

It was the easiest way to solve my problem, I tried ones and still
using this method in different situations.

5.0 out of 5 stars Desperation and hopelessness, 26 April 2011
Start reading and you will probably find a lot of about yourself, your thoughts and fears hided deeply inside. Sometimes it is scary, but anyway you will never remain the same person after reading Kafka. I dont want to go over his stories but Franz Kafka is still my favourite writer. He saw this life same strange way as i am seeing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best african storytelling prose ever!, 26 April 2011
Very nice and naive book. My first ecnounter with written African oral literature. Avery graphic tale! 'Palm Wine Drunkard' is simply pure, ludicrous and laughable fun.

Man's Search For Meaning: The classic tribute to hope from the Holocaust
Man's Search For Meaning: The classic tribute to hope from the Holocaust
by Viktor E Frankl
Edition: Paperback
Price: £5.59

5.0 out of 5 stars This book is one of my favourite., 21 April 2011
"Challenging the meaning of life is the truest expression of the state of being human." - Viktor E. Frankl quote.

Man's Search for Meaning describes Viktor Frankls experiences as a concentration camp inmate. It is about his method of finding meaning, reasons to continue living. He is not talking about exactly believing in yourself only. He's talking mostly about believing in others. Concentrating on "what you think you should be" is simply not helpful. If you believe in others, belief in yourself comes to you without any doubt. It's not about unintelligent people - it's about focusing on someone other than youself.

Read it. Just read.
