Really worth reading

This book came to me at the right moment. I always thought I had a bad memory and this is a great foundation to teach all of us that our memory can be amazing if we learn the proper ways to use it. I’m a teacher and I practice some of the exercises from this book with my students and they love it.

Worth Reading

I especially loved that the practical examples teach useful information that I can share with friends and family from memory. What a great gift to have gotten myself - it will forever be one of the most influential books I've listened to.

Informative

I found the book helpful, as it has the potential to expedite the learning process by teaching effective strategies, and pruning the old non-effective methods. Learning through games, and challenges opened my mind to explore things differently. Short- to the point- but quite resourceful, I’d say this book is.

Poor book for memory training

It is just a regurgitation of other memory books. A few useful tips but nothing more.

Great Book

The book was great. It's not so much a book of techniques or excises that one can follow; moreover, it highlights steps one can take to improve one's mind/memory. i.e I was looking for a book that would provide me with memory formulas that would help categorize and store retrievable memory. The focus on the book was not about that, though it did touch on various and different examples on how to achieve what I was looking for. What the book did focus on, was an understanding of how memory works and the best way to capitalize on its preservation. Most of us know eating right and exercise is good for the mind, the book expanded and on concepts such as this and applied a "roadmap" of sorts, to best take advantage of these practices and also what can sabotage them. Very important in my view. Lastly, the two best things I took from this book was the section on frequency ways and the adverse affect of sleeping aids. Ive had trouble sleeping for a long time [over 10 years of horrible....HORRIBLE sleep]. That being said, Ive been using frequency waves to help me in my hunt for catching some Zzz. Doing this, along with the elimination of some bad habits [reading and phone usage in bed] have allowed me to experience some nights of better sleep. All in all, this book is not a one stop solution, but I think it can advance your efforts tremendously.

Improve your memory

The information was well put and easy to digest! The way the information flows actually helps you somewhat memorize the key points after the first read. I am definitely starting a DAILY memory skills training routine and will forever be grateful for stumbling upon this excellent piece of literature. Onto future success and eternal happiness!

Amazingly effective

The real-life stories you told were great supporters of what we can achieve by improving our memory. And, following the practice exercises in your book provided us with a way to see real results. My memory is getting better and better with each challenge. Finally, by listening to your memory book I've gained a lifetime tool. Many thanks. I'm well on my way.

This is a wonderful book.

There are quite some useful techniques and insights in this book from improving memory to aiding recall, little exercises that can be done daily to form habits to maintaining our brain health. I will try to come back to the book again as I can’t possibly remember all these techniques, hence the need for this book! Will try out one or two, form the habit, and then come back for another one to try.
