Recommended to Bob by: I think my brother bought it for me
I learned some great memory tricks that have really helped me remember names better and lists. Once you learn the techniques you'll start applying to your life. You must try to use it every day, or like most things involving memory you'll lose it. It may seem difficult at first, but after trying it a few times it will get easier and easier. A co-worker of mine tried to test my skills and made up a list of 30 completely random words. Some were objects, some were foreign words, and others were peo ...more
Memory tricks, memory tricks, and more memory tricks. It's really fun to use some of the tricks in the book, and they work. The only problem is that once you stop practicing the techniques outlined in the book, within a week your memory goes back to that thing. What's the word. That thing before. Where your brain used to be. Previously. Ahh, see? Previously. That's the one. Nap time.

actually I couldn't imagine that I would benefit from such a book like that a totally new experience, a very simple book and to the point providing you with tips you need to improve your memory and concentration it really changed my perspective about "is it possible to improve my memory with only a book?!". at the beginning I thought its all about brain activity but I found out that memory and concentration can be improved by simple strategies. I highly advice whoever is reading the book to use ...more
There comes a point where instead of discounting memory techniques you actually decide to properly give them a go because the alternative is to be a vegetable by age 35 and mumbling away in an effort to recall your name.

Harry Lorayne is often praised in the magic and mentalism communities for his magic memory work so that's one hell of an endorsement if you ask me given these are industries so reliant on memory. Lorayne covers many techniques in the tiny book including the Peg technique and the
Small, simple book with impact. I effectively learned my card with bank codes by heart with these techniques. Fun stuff.
This is very similar in- content and structure - to "Use your memory" by Tony Buzan (first edition of Page-A-Minute Memory Book - 1985, first edition of "Use Your Memory" - 2003, but it is based on an older book by the same author - "Use your Perfect Memory" which was published in 1984... ) ... In my opinion "Use your memory" is slightly better organized but Page-A-Minute exemplifies more. Both are useful if applied.
A practical, easy system for remembering things. Many useful applications that will be of benefit for a lifetime.
fun read. Some of the techniques are quite good, specifically with names and numbers.
It is practical. But just not enough and not that exciting.
