Will you pay more for a $19.99 shirt with a 20 percent discount or a $24.99 shirt with a 30 percent discount? The truth is, most of the math you find yourself doing on a day to day basis it's usually done in your head, that's why improving your mental math skills is always useful. If you’ve grown up hating math, that’s probably because you’ve been taught with the wrong approach. Math can help you calculate a discount on the fly, easily multiply big numbers, or quickly figure out how much dough packs you’ll need to make 50 cookies if one pack will be enough for 20.

Have you ever walked into a room and couldn't remember what you went there for? Have you ever grasped the hand of a potential client and then when the handshake broke, the name seemed to disappear from your memory? Or have you ever left a prospect or an important meeting and as you drove away remembered a key point that you should have shared with them? The problem is NOT with your memory. The problem is with the "Filing System" your brain currently uses to store and retrieve memory items.

Good beginners guide for visualization techniques
This is another one of those books about how to memorize abstract concepts using visualization techniques. It wasn't bad, and it was short.
Essentially, the author teaches you to visualize the rooms of your home and link things in your home to mathematical formulas.
There are several other mnemonic techniques and several good tips throughout the book. I particularly enjoyed a section at the end that includes an interview with someone who uses the techniques and the different ways in which he uses them for different types of information.
It's not bad, but there are better versions of this type of book out there, but then again, they aren't as short. The narration was good, and the format of the book flowed well. It's just not the sort of book that was revelatory for me, but if you haven't heard of these types of techniques, it would be a good, quick, and inexpensive primer.

Good points but very verbose
The book could have been 80% shorter without missing a single point. The same information is told over and over again and the topic is oversold to the point of it being ridiculous.
Furthermore, the narrator sounds like a computergenerated voice, with no variation or excitement. The guy sounds as exited as if he was reading the phonebook.
However, if you are patient enough to suffer thru it all, the main points of the book is valuable and can actually teach you how to remember better.

if you have one of his books you have them all. <br />
It is not that his ideas are not useful, there are. He mentions many great memory techniques from many authors that are in pretty much any book on memory or a quick YouTube search away.
Then he gives HIS take on them, using that approach for the topic of the book.
example.
1. Cicero method or location method. what it is, how it works.
2. what would you like to remember? Maths? French?
3. Use 1 to attain your goals.
4. Tips from Tim Fenris, Dominic OBrian on how to review and not give up.
5. not working? you need to try harder. come on you can do it.
the end
If he has any other books please change 2. to the topic of your choice.
good luck.

He Gives the Listener His or Her Money’s Worth
The author definitely gives the listener his or her money’s worth. This presentation of the material on how to remember numbers and formulas is a little different from the rest of Metivier’s other books that focus on words and language. So, this is a great addition to the rest of his work. The audiobook ends with a recording of an interview with a mathematician in which the interviewee demonstrates his use of Metivier’s method of learning complicated formulas so he won’t have to look them up any more. I highly recommend this book.
