I bought this book about 4 years ago. Was just reminded about it by a post on facebook. I'd totally forgot that I'd read it and forgot to write a review after buying it. Gotta say, it's absolutely brilliant!! My memory is incredible these days thanks to the pnemonic? (can't remember how to spell that correctly) system it talked about and some other system which was also really good too; the name and technique escapes me. If you want to remember things then this is the DVD for you!

I would not recommend this book unless you are unfamiliar with the concepts of mnemonics and basic memory ideas. The only new memory technique I learnt here was the Peg system (and this I have never used). A good read, and interesting if you cannot remember people's names.
A good little book, but if you know the very fundamentals of memory techniques please look elsewhere.

Never mind what the other people say about this book, this book deserves to be THE classic memory book of all time! A big thumbs up to Harry for making everything so clear and easy to understand. Right from the start, you are invited to try out the systems for yourselevs instead of passively reading about the principles. I really enjoyed trying out the link system, which was extremely easy to use, all thanks to the way harry makes things sooooooo easy to understand.

A classic book on memory improvement. Thoroughly recommended. Has improved my memory from being so bad that it made me a liability at work to being one of my strongest assets. Would be a solid 5 stars if it wasn't for the font size. Rather small dense text makes for difficult reading if your eyes aren't what they used to be. The content itself however, is wonderful.
