Publisher's Summary

With phones ringing off the hook, constantly changing to-do lists, and increasingly complicated schedules, having a good memory has become more important than ever. Drawing on the latest research from cognitive experts and psychologists, 30 Days to a More Powerful Memory provides hands-on, practical strategies and exercises that anyone, young or old, can use to sharpen their memory - fast! The book introduces readers to memory-boosting techniques such as mnemonic devices, visualization, chunking and clustering, and mental triggers, and also shows how to:

  • Effectively decrease anxiety levels and combat the negative emotions that can affect recall
  • Create powerful backup systems to help trigger associations
  • Exercise both body and mind, and improve overall health to improve memory
  • Get the kind of restful sleep that will increase one's ability to retain information.

    The book discusses common myths about memory, clarifying what's true and what isn't. Packed with tips and memory-boosting activities, this guide provides listeners with the simple but powerful methods they need to increase their mental agility.

      "A hard Listen"

      Although there are a few probably useful tricks to helping you remember things in this book, I was unable to struggly thru the last 2 of the 8 CD's. Once I got past the narrator's stilted method of speaking, I thought things would pick-up, but was disappointed.

      To be fair, I listened to this in the car, and much of the book requires you to practice different grouping and recall techniques involving writing long series of numbers, words, or alpha-numerics.

      Listening to those lists being dictated for the exercises does not make for a dynamic experience. Some good suggestions such as always storing items that are hard to find in standard locations are presented to free the reader's mind from distractions.

      "Far to long winded"

      This guy can talk!
      Presentation is good and some of it is very interesting but mostly he just goes on and on and on, often around the point. This book could have been cut down to under an hour and would then have been a really good book.
