    Dissappointing

    Without the written materials, this book loses a lot of its value. As an audio book, this is extremely repetative. The "memory tools" that it teaches you could be taught in 3 days tops, rather than 10. I found very little information that was truly helpful as a memory technique.

    Not very helpful

    Poorly organized, and, contrary to every bit of memory research, not logically connected. The book frequently makes either non-sensical or contradictory statements.

    Good Memory Techniques

    Good Audible audio title, I suggest you suppliment the audio version with the printed version. The memory techniques for remembering numbers is a must have for techical people. The techniques for remembering faces, names, addresses, etc. are probably only beneficial as a "refresher" for Sales people. For general purposes, anyone can us this Audible title to exercise their mind and increase their proficiency with visualization.

    I wish I could forget it....

    I really wish I hadn't gotten this book, there are so many interesting ways to approach memory. Forget this one.

    Good introduction to memory techniques

    What will this book do for you?

    It will introduce you to mnemonic techniques -- including linking, visualization, memory palaces, and phonetic.

    It will recommend lifestyle fixes that will maximize your memory -- including sleeping right, eating right, and thinking right.

    The reader is a seasoned voice professional and his speaking will keep you engaged.

    If you are looking for a more detailed treatment of memory I would recommend "Your Memory: How It Works" by Kenneth Higbee. If you are looking for a story about memory I would recommend "Moonwalking with Einstein" by Joshua Foer. The former you can only find on Amazon but the latter is available on Audible.

    This piece will give you a good introduction. If you read it through a few times you can ingrain the principles. Then give it a few months to start using these techniques on a daily basis. If you follow this process -- by using this book alone -- you will possess a better memory than 95% of the people you come into contact with.
