الكتاب ممتع و مفيد . طريقة تقديمه للمعلومة كانت جذابة . أعجبني أن الكاتب قام أولا بتزويد القارئ بالخلفية المعلوماتية المطلوبة لفهم الذاكرة و طريقة عملها قبل أن يقدم طرق تحسين الذاكرة .

مما تعلمته من الكتاب و اقتبسته :
العناصر الغذائية التي تساعد على تحسين الذاكرة تشمل : فيتامين سي و إي و بي (1-3-6-12) ، و البورون و المغنيسيوم و الزنك و أوميغا 3 . كل هذا يمكن إيجاده في الأطعمة التالية : الحمضيات ، الجزر ، السبانخ ، زيوت الخضروات ، الأسماك الزيتية التونة و السردين ، زيت الزيتون ، الحليب ، السمك ، ا
This was a good refresher for me. The best tidbit of information I didn't know about was when to review - an hour, a day, a week, a month, 3 months, and 6 months - to keep recall up at about 80%. I'm going to try this with a dated card file box I have for Spanish vocabulary.

A couple of years ago, I spent some time building a date recall system I call CAT - creature action thing - and I'd like to return to it and build it up more. I guess now's the time!

Its so basic, don`t help very much, Its a good super brief introduction for memory training though. The pretty pictures and well organized text made me read all the book. ...more

The advice sounds rather general.
This book was pretty good, I think. Well, on second thought, I cannot remember too much about it!

I really don't know how useful this will be, but I will do my best to apply what I'm reading.
Brief; full of diagrams and has some good tips.
