    "My favorite audible book so far"

    This taught me to be more confidant about memory -- you really can make life easier by learning to remember - names, numbers, routines, etc. I can remember all manner of numbers now, I can recite the BIll of Rights, but it is a skill you have to practice. I plan to read this book again in 6 months and do a phase-two memory plan.

    "Harry's Techniques Work"

    I have read several of Harry Lorayne's books on mneumonics. His techniques really work. When coupled with increasingly spaced repetitions over time, information learned using these methods can become true and permanent memory. If you are familiar with his work, this is really more of the same. If not, it's well worth the time. In fact, it was worth it for me just to hear him read his own work. My only complaint is that I wish he would have provided a more extended list of his phonetic alphabet representation of numbers. I believe he went through 20. Through 1,000 would be great - perhaps as an appendix, so those who don't want the extended material could easily skip it. Thanks Harry!

    "excellent"

    The exercises will definitely help anyone improve their memory. I also bought the hard copy of the book so that i could thoroughly learn everything that book has to offer.

    "OK, but this is a book for print"

    This is one of those books that should be bought in print. Preferably paperback because you will want to go back an use it as a reference. The stories a compelling and Harry Lorayne's achievements are astonishing. When you realize that these techniques work better than what you were taught in formal education you will be tempted to make a life change. However, this is not a read it and forget it book, and improving your memory appears to be one of the most important steps you can take in metacognition. I like the book, but I am now looking for the best way to learn to memorize, and at this time it appears Dominic O'Brien may have a superior memory technique. (see World Memory Championships).

    "it takes work"

    Somehow I had been doing some of the same tricks on my own so it was surreal to find out that others had been doing this for centuries. I have a bad memory, but it used to be pretty good and since my stroke words and names and faces and where everything is gets a little foggy. but it was helpful, I would like to see the price a little cheaper but its worth it.

    Story
    "Calisthenics for the Brain. Defeat Dementia!!"
    What would have made Ageless Memory better?

    A professional narrator. Harry Lorayne is not a polished speaker, through he is truly an expert on the subject of memory. Carefully followed, his recommendations really work.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    This is not a story, it's a "how to" book providing exercises to help a person improve his or her memory. The story relates the authors difficulties as a youngster in school and how he developed a system to help him retain or remember what he was being taught in school.The book is particularly valuable to someone advancing in age and fearful that his memory is failing with age. With Lorayne's system you can develop the ability to retain whatever you want to learn regardless of your age. And, this system can help grandparents help kids and grand-kids with school work.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Harry Lorayne’s performances?

    I already have studied a couple of his other books.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    This is an errant assumption. I think Lorayne's memory system is great and I have recommended his books both audio and printed versions to others.


    Any additional comments?

    I re-listen to this audio-book regularly and will continue to do so.

    "Not for everyone"

    10 years ago I purchased Harry's memory training techniques program with little results and I thought I would try it again. The information in this book is exactly what he taught 10 years ago. Although some people may find this helpful, for me it was not. You may get a few nuggets of useful information out of it, but don't expect to improve your memory.
