By D. Graham VINE VOICE on 11 April 2006
Format: Paperback
This is a great little book, full of funky tricks and tips for improving, amongst other things, your mental arithmetic, memory, ability to brainstorm effectively and so on.
The hacks themselves are split neatly into eight sections: Memory, information processing, creativity, math, decision making, communication, clarity, and 'mental fitness'
Some of the hacks in the book are pretty intense, requiring a fair amount of legwork (or should that be brainwork?) to get them up and running. Some of the memory systems for example would clearly need you to remember the system before you could remember other things!
I loved the way that the hacks are set out - starting out with what the hack will achieve, how it would work 'in action', then applying it so that you can see how it would work 'in real life'
My favourite section was the Creativity section, with some great ideas and tips for getting the old grey matter ticking along. As with every O'Reilly book I've read, the author's style is friendly, clear and informative, not to mention funny.
You may not use all the hacks in this book, but I'll bet you a dollar you come out of it wanting to try more than a few. Top stuff.

Packed with useful tips for improving mental performance. You can either dip in or read cover to cover. The only catch is that you have to carry out the suggestions, not just read them.

Format: Paperback
I love this well written and organized collection of mental tricks, hacks, and exercises. While other reviewers seem familiar with these, I am not, so find them all to be interesting. Though many are not for me, knowing about them has proved useful in odd situations. Others helped me to think about the subject in a new way.

On the first day of reading, I used number sixteen to reorganize some of the information I had gathered for another book--the method was a completely unexpected and welcome find.

One of the things I like most about "Mind Performance Hacks" is the variety presented. As well as the obvious cognitive subjects--remembering things, calculating things, and organizing things--other less left-brained methods are given, including instructions on meditation and self hypnosis.

It is a wonderful collection and very useful to come back to when needed, so I heartily recommend it.
