I bought this book a little over 6 months ago. I'm not a memory expert, but have read more than my fair share of books on the subject to say this is one of the better ones I've encountered.

One of the reasons I liked this book is because of the many examples. The author never assumes that just because a concept was explained that you will automatically know how to use it. Instead he provides numerous illustrations that show you what to do. Not only that, he shows you different ways to apply them in different situations. The examples are practical and reference information that you'll likely need to learn or remember, whether for school, work, or day to day life.

Another reason I liked the book is because the author understands the limitations of each technique. He realizes that one method will not work for every situation. For example, you can't use acronyms to remind you of an appointment or a rhyme to remember where you misplaced your keys. Where one technique falls short, he provides others to compensate. Also, not all memory issues can be solved with a technique. Where a technique can't be used, he offers other strategies. He talks about everything from concentration, your diet, to getting organized.

The most helpful chapter for me was the one on affirmations. The author says that your beliefs about your ability to remember have a strong influence on your memory - more than any technique you can learn. He gives you an affirmation exercise to improve your beliefs, which I've been affirming regularly for a few months. I have to say, that alone has had an astounding shift. I am able to remember everything from appointments, schedules, errands, deadlines, due dates, and meetings without the use of any method.

In my opinion, it doesn't matter who you are, how old you are or what you do, it's always useful to improve your memory, even if you don't think you have a bad one. Mine's okay, but retaining information is important to me on both a work and personal level, so I read this book to learn some techniques.

Perhaps the most important point made in the book is that your memory is like a muscle; the more you exercise it, the better it gets. The reverse is true, also; neglect makes it worse. So with that in mind I dove into this book, ready to learn and improve.

There are many methods in here, the key is to read through each one, try it out, and see what works best. The methods include repetition--both mental and physical--taking notes, attention, focusing on positives, discarding negatives, affirmations and improving understanding to aid remembering. More advanced ideas include associations, clusters and visualization. Help with remembering certain types of information is also included; i.e., remembering names and faces, dates, locations, directions, addresses and events.

All this information is coupled with ways to help these methods work better for you. Eating better removing stress, learning to relax, avoiding unimportant issues and learning to say no can all boost the memory-improvement process.

The best part about it is that everything you're taught is easy to learn and apply. There's no point trying to learn something that's more likely to make your brain explode than improve your memory. Using some of the techniques, I've been able to control the things that I want to remember, and to access information more easily.

Overall, this is an easy to understand, thorough book on improving memory. So if you're looking for a variety of methods to assist you, then this is a book worth checking out.

This is a well written book on memory improvement. I can go into specifics about the content and all the techniques that are discussed in here, but other reviewers have done a good job highlighting them already.

What I do want to express is that from the examples and analogies, it seems like this author comes from a strong academic and/or educational background. He is very authoritative and knows a lot about the subject. I say this because he makes reference to quite a bit of classic literature, timeless poems, famous quotes, and historical events. As a reader, this is both interesting and refreshing.

A lot of books, especially newer ones, lack this. Since the popularity of e-readers such as the kindle, it has become easier for the average Joe to publish a book and become an author. No longer does one need to obtain a degree, gain respect in a field, or pay their dues to have their work published. Although I applaud these individual's effort, many times their material is basic, common sense, and highly superficial. If they are not these things, they are disorganize or unprofessional.

Although this author appears to have a formal educational background, his writing is user friendly. It is clear-cut with plenty of examples. Most writers who come from a trained and skilled background tend to write in way that makes sense to them or other people with a similar training. However, their writing becomes too difficult to grasp for the average person. This author is able to take complicated information and make it straightforward. A lot of times the information comes off as though it is common sense, but in my opinion it is the author's ability to convey information in a way that is obvious and self-evident to readers.
