required visuals defeats audio books purpose

Good info but i will have to go over the book again with the visuals in order to make sense of half of the techniques, which defeats the purpose of using audio books for me on this book

I don't get it

I don’t get how this book as so many rave and dazzling reviews. For starters, not a single one of the memory techniques discussed here is new, original or ground-breaking. They have been around for decades and been taught for decades and Kevin’s recital of them isn’t new or ground breaking to create such a rave.

The main problem for me is that these techniques are great for winning memory championships but they are not so useful for everyday life as they won’t help you remember where you left your wallet, remind you of an appointment, outline directions to a place nor help you recall the events of the day.

The material can only be used to remember lists. If it could be used to remember anything else, you will not learn how in this book because all the examples Kevin provides are of lists like the list of Steven Covey’s 7 habits, Tony Robbin’s 10 Emotions of Power, United States’ first 12 presidents or the brain’s 12 cranial nerves.

Even then, the systems Kevin provides are overly complicated because to remember something as simple as a number, you have to do all sorts of conversions into pictures, sounds, or words. I mean for the number 6, you first convert it to either an elephant, sound of J, Sh, soft Ch or Soft G, or the word jaw. From there, you construct ridiculous words, sentences or stories from the converted pictures and sounds. All that to remember a simple number.

If you have dozens and dozens of facts and numbers to remember, the system will break down, you’re going to have too many rules and images in your head creating all sorts of confusion.

Kevin's book might be great for some as all these skeptical reviews suggest, but it wasn’t for me.

Great book

A little hard if you listen in car or during running. Yiu need to concentrate and get help from the pdf companion. But I learned a lot. Really worth the price.

Practical methods to improve your memory

Whether you are looking for ways to remember names, numbers, texts, or whatever else you won't be disappointed. There's something in here for everyone. He walks through numerous methods for memory improvement and explains how you can store information for long term memory recall. This is sort of a different take on a self-development book, and everyone will walk away with something. Although the narration was a little fast while listening at normal speed, that can be fixed and it's a worthy read. Invest in your memory and yourself with this book.

My second Horsley book today

I think this book is loaded with useful information. His presentation sticks for me. I mean I think I will be using his techniques because he makes them seem doable and like something I will want to do.

Horrible

Its endless rambling, quotes from other people and examples . he takes like 30 minutes explaining the same strategy over and over again with a different metaphor. this audio book seems like 15 minutes of actual story and the rest is complete filler.

I don’t understand how this got such good reviews?

All it is is a book of list and he rattles them off so quickly that you will be still thinking about number 3 when he’s already on to number 10 - horrible ...

Straight to the point with usable tactics

I've been a skeptic of these "train your brain" books. The info inside unlimited memory actually "clicked" for me. & I love that Mr Horsely didn't add a pile of fluff just for the sake of running up the page count! He jumps right in & stays on course succinctly:)

....now I guess I just have to go out & practice

Talk about dragging on.....

I have had an accident and been advised to buy these books to help with my memory loss.

This book falls into the usual self help book catogory. It is 99% of the author praising a book he picked up before he was able to do anything for himself and magically turned him into a succesful person all because he found a secret within that book when he was younger.

Why don't they just stop trying to create a book with a certain amount of words in so they can call it a book and get mugs like me to buy it.

Just tell us the name of the book that magically changed their life and really help people instead of making me listen to the same boring stories you get in stop smoking, self help, improve your mind etc. (I have stopped smoking by myself. No help from any book)

oh, the book is not too helpful improving my memory but did help me improve falling asleep quicker.

As you can tell, I'm still looking for a good self help, stop being grumpy book.

Great book

Excellent book. Really inspiring.
I haven't come across many books as this one, in which all information presented is "quality" information. There is nothing to take away. Much more than a book about memory, the author shared with us principles that can also be used for self-development: discipline, focus...
I have really enjoyed the book and really want to work on my memory.

Has helped me a lot.

Absolutely loved it - although it was quite long. Quite funnily it's about improving memory and, I had to listen to it 3 times because I'd forgotten what was said before in earlier chapters. The third time I wrote down notes of the techniques and tried them out. I tried a game with my siblings, to give me a list of 20 random objects in an order. And to their suprise I recalled them immediately afterwards. it was something like: apple, bed, carrot, dinosaur, elephant, flamingo, banana, shoes, igloo, etc etc. and my story went like: I was sitting on my bed eating a red apple, and I dropped my carrot. Then I looked outside the window and saw a huge T-rex dinosaur eating an elephant which was sitting on top of a bright pink flamingo. I ran downstairs and slipped on a banana so hard that my shoes flew off. I ran outside and it was snowing and I spotted a huge igloo in the neighbour's garden etc. (I'm really surprised I can still remember all of them now even 3 days after this happened, and I didn't even review it since then). It was very funny and amazing when I had explained and told the whole story out loud. Right now it's a cool party trick, but with enough practise I'm confident using all the techniques in this book that this could be utilised in a much more useful manner.

It says "Kevin Horsley" On The Tin....

but its not narrated by him. 3 minutes in to the far-too-fast narration with an annoying American (?) type accent I have decided its going back and I shall go back to watching Kevin on youtube with his beautiful Safa accent, passion and energy. The current narrator rattles it down like its a shopping list, no passion and the emphasis all wrong. I know there are some authors who can't narrate their own works, not everyone who can write well can read aloud but Kevin is a very accomplished and practiced speaker so there's really no excuse.

Good listening

First of all was it boring definitely not
Second it was presented excellently, why you buy this book to learn simple fact
The facts concepts are eloquently presented in such a manner, that makes you want to continue.
I never thought I would say this but truthfully learning is and shall remain a pleasure, I also have the book and am reading that in conjunction with the audio , to the author my sincerest thanks and yes I shall finish the book because that is really helping me with the review
Kindest regards
Mark

Great intro to memory techniques

This is a great first stop in your memory improvement journey. I was already pretty familiar with some techniques after reading Tony Buzan, but the body and car technique are helpful variations on a theme. I listened while walking the dog in the mornings and used the beginning visualisation in the book to go on to memorize all of the Presidents using images along my dog walk!

The book doesn't go into depth and only really touches on the capabilities of the memory, but it's a simple and straightforward introduction that doesn't overwhelm you. Highly recommend.

Changed my life!

It absolutely changed my life forever. I am 19, and very truly believed I had a memory condition. Prior to listening to this book, I took an iq test, and my memory score was the worst of all my scores. Now, I really believe I could learn and remember anything. My memory has become within the span of completing this book one of my strongest traits. Not even a couple weeks and my memory has exploded in strength. In fact, I spoke to my dear friend recently and told him of this book. At that moment he was sceptical of my praise for it and the change its brought about within me. So I immediately asked him to challenge my memory. He asked me to remember 12 random words. It took me 20 seconds to remember them perfectly. He asked me to recall the words, and I did flawlessly. He was shocked to say the least.

Now I feel absolutely confident I could study and ace any degree or area of academia I desire. Thus, my life is from now whatever great story I intend to make it. How successful I want to be is unlimited.

Long story short, thank Christ I got my hands on this.

Wonderful book and narrator

The book is just what I was looking for. Very short and pointed key strategies put in one well written book. Note: no PDF file to accompany the book comes with the book, but there is an option to download it free from a website mentioned in the 2nd chapter. Listened twice as didn't get some key points from the first time. Definitely worth time for me.

Brilliant, Life Changing

In the past I've looked online for memory techniques that I can use, but to little success. Kevin does a great job of teaching memory techniques and then giving exercises for being able to actually learn the techniques. It is interesting, fun to listen to, and has changed the way I approach learning now.

I suspect that my enjoyment of this book is due both to me having matured and how well written and narrated this book is.

I have even bought a physical copy of the book so I can teach my wife and children the amazing concepts in this book.

very very useful and amazing book

it was a wonderful book and easy to understand and implement .
the methods are really easy to understand and apply I needed to repeat some part to help me implementation it even better. the numbers are always a challenge for me he explains them very well. I had lots of fun with and enjoyed the other parts hips more as numbers are not that easy and fun usually , I wish there was a method to enjoy the numbers as much.

Absolutely worth it.
Highly recommend to those looking to improve their memory using multiple strategies and tips. Bought on audible, I found listening to a couple of chapters a day and practicing the methods easier for me. Therefore creating a stronger foundation for the next method.
