Until recently I must confess to not having heard of Harry Lorayne. But after reading 'Instant Mind Power' I am 'hooked' on this author's writing style which is clear and easy-to-read.
This book is no exception. There is literally a key lesson on every page; the key to improving memory is ASSOCIATION, the author shows you, step-by-step how to associate the new information to 'pegs' ( what you ALREADY know ).
I have not given a full five star rating, because, in my humble opinion, some of the techniques for turning the abstract into something more tangible, (as in the substitute word), are a little perplexing and prone to error. I also felt more about the number shape/ rhyme should have been included.
But, I enjoyed the book and also the bonus tips on arithmetic, listening and observation.
