I'm still mind blown by this book.
Very entertaining. Nice voice with a good sense of humor.
Highly educational. Surprising stuff.
Intriguing memory techniques that actually work. Yep, I tried them.
Awesome, awesome, awesome.

I might come back to give this amazing book a proper review when I can think of things to say.

The Foers for the win!

As Ed Cooke tries to have Foer memorize his to-do list of 15 things, explaining him what to do and how to use 'the memory palace', I tried it along with him. Surprisingly, 6 hours later, I still remember that list very clearly! This is sort of amazing."
