Some of this should be taught in schools, it teaches how to remember For example if you are a man and as you left your house one day and a dozen girls were walking past just as your trouser belt broke and your trousers fell to the floor , You would never forget it for the rest of your life. . An out door bit of fun I have is to ask some one to give me any date of the year and I name the day it falls on This year next year last year. There's 1095 different days And it can be taken farther. Notice I said outdoor fun I did not say trick. Some people say I wish I could play the piano. What they are really saying is I wish I could wake up in he morning and find I can play without putting time in on practice. This book is not a magic book you have to put a bit of effort in, but it is easy. Different Paragraphs cover different subject. If you have no interest in memorising a pack of cards move to a different subject. e.g. remembering Months They are numbered ie September is 6 And the way to remember it is in Sep The leaves fall there are 6 letters in leaves THAT easy, Aug is 3 it is hot 3 letters, June is 5 you have a June Bride, Bride 5 letters. Try reading a magazine with 50 odd pages and ask someone to call any page No and you tell them something on that page "EASY"... On a personal note I have had many jobs and a workmate in one of them gave me the book when it was first released .I was a school caretaker for 21 years at a school for kids with learning difficulties the pay was poor but I loved the job. so you can see I haven't got a GCE and 43 "A" levels, And I used a dictionary to write this. I am 82 now and still do the calendar stunt. I don't tell how I do it and people think I have an amazing memory. As the author says people don't have poor memories just untrained ones Years ago I lost the book ,Loaned it out and never got it back. (That's how good it is). But recently I bought a copy for peanuts from Amazon and it was like finding the holy grail. Den.

if you want to improve your memory this is the technique to use -
a pure mind blower - highly recommended.

I first read this book over 20 years ago. I believe the author is a famous magician /memory man & I did see him once on Parkinson years ago. He uses all the techniques that Buzan, O'Brien etc use - Peg & Link, Visualisation, Pnemonics, Memorising Numbers, cards, faces etc and this book is a fraction of the price(I can't remember if he used mind maps though). It might seem a little out of date and more geared to a North American reader but it's cheap as chips!

This is a practical and readable book. It doesn't have the scientific research behind it as Higbee's book (or similar) but this is a very usable book without having to bother with why or how it works.

These methods do work and don't require any specific talents. I expected Lorayne to tell me how he did it with a 'but don't expect to be able to copy me' catch but these methods really work and have helped me with many life skills.

This is a book originally published in 1958, with this edition from 1986, so I'd guess it's kind-of longevity has something to do with useful content!

Over the time since publication I'd expect there to be some perspective changes, but the essentials are the same...to develop a better memory. A brief look at the content points to the use of common sense, but it's amazing how we can hone our mind simply by highlighting some aspect by writing it down.

A must for anyone who wants to improve their memory. I first used this in 1978 and ended up teaching classes on memory in the 1980s.
