5.0 out of 5 starsUseful and Helpful Book on Memory Improvement
Reviewed in the United States on January 28, 2007
This is a useful step-by-step book that is very helpful to those who wish to improve their memory. Reading the book can save you the embarrassment of not remembering the names of some of your important customers when you bump into them in the street or to forget some important appointments or your spouse's birthday.
The book is interesting to read and easy to follow and understand. It is divided into 10 chapters which you can read as the author recommended at one chapter per day and you should complete it in 10 days. I completed it in a couple of days but I have gone through it a number of times to ensure that the message sinks in and sticks. I have found the simple steps and tips for remembering things to be workable as my memory has improved, especially in recalling people's names. I still have some way to go but I am confident that by practicing the tips in the book, I should be able to remember phone numbers, lists, appointments and other important things which have given me confidence to address people by their names without fearing calling someone the wrong name or having a mental block.
I have learnt the memory improving techniques such as association, visualization, imagination and organisation and I have started applying them with encouraging results.
The book is good value for money and is therefore recommended.
4.0 out of 5 starsSame top techniques but in an audio format
Reviewed in the United States on August 25, 2002
Whether you are trying to remember names, phone numbers, dates, appointments, lists, or other items it is easy once you have mastered the techniques presented here. While there are no new techniques presented, it does provide an overview of the various memory methods (loci, peg, phoenetic, etc.) and how each one is used. There is one difference in the phoenetic method presented here and the method as traditionally taught. The method taught here is easier to use with lists of less than a hundred items but would be more complex with larger lists. Still it is an interesting variation. This is not instant memory, but does provide the listener with the tools and techniques to remember anything you have a desire to recall. Within ten days you can gain enough knowledge to have a substantially better memory. If you are serious enough to master the techniques then they will serve you the rest of your life and you will be sure to stun others with your ability to recall just about anything you want to remember.
