I have a month of Kindle Unlimited that I'm frantically trying to use up. After I read The Miracle Morning, I inadvertently convinced some Kindle algorithm that I am now seeking self-help books by the cubic ton (or e-book equivalent). This was the most appealing of all of the ones that were thrust at me.

I started becoming more interested in improving my memory last year when I decided I needed to 1) get more serious about maintaining languages and 2) generally retain more of what I read. I had h

Who would you be without your excuses? Enter all learning with this new mindset.

This book emphasizes on converting words, letters or numbers into mental images or mind pictures because your brain likes them and is very good at remembering them, be creative with your imagination, as silly as it can be, like an elephant relaxing on a beach wearing a bikini.

Author says, those who say that they don't have imagination are just too lazy to put in the effort. So, stop excusing and let the brain juice

As it turns out, I don't actually have a bad memory. We were just never shown how powerful our memories really are. Going from being dyslexic barely making it through high school to having one of the best memories in the world, Kevin Horsley is living proof.

This book is low on fluff filled to the brim with practical application. I had modest expectations, but i'm giving it 5 stars because Horsley showed me that my memory was a LOT better than I thought it was once I used t

i am a medical student and this helped me a ton, especially in studying anatomy..

I am now also practicing at the hospital...and I am using these techniques to memorize patient ID numbers and It leaves a big goddamn impression to my colleagues when I just recite the ID off by heart instead of looking through the names In the search Haha

just a note:
1-this book is short ,nevertheless don't be fooled. this definitely is an amazing and helpful book
2-don't expect to see any improvement without

“Memory is a way of holding onto the things you love, the things you are, the things you never want to lose.” - The Wonder Years

I have always asked me self why is that I am able to remember some memories and lose the others, or that I am able to recall some paragraphs that I studied in middle school and not able to remember some thing I read recently.

Having read multiple books about memory improvement, I must say it was not a straight forward to understand specially on the application side, how

"Perfect memory is a skill and not a special gift."

Quite a read. My first book related to improving memory and self-help, I've been always a bit skeptical about these kind of books, mainly because I think they're full of crap.

As with anything you want to master, it will take time for the majority of the methods described in this book, specially, at least for me, the peg sytem for remembering numbers. It's quite a challenge if you want to translate some systems to your own language. I was amazed

I reread this book because I didn't remember what it was about and after I reread the 7 Habits of highly effective people, this one came up on my recommendations. I still stand by my rating although for a different reason. The methods he suggests to improve memory are quite impractical and not very useful. I went through medical school and really struggled with content retention, not because of bad memory but because there was no time to memorize everything. With this author's methods you might ...more

It is a remarkable book with not only the rationale to improve ones memory but also provides for a practical guide to achieving this. There are indeed some seminal statements as well : "Learning is not a destination, it is a continuous process" and "If you believe your limits, your life will be very limited". The author quotes copiously from legends to drive home his points. The one from Alexander Graham Bell stands out : "Concentrate all your thoughts on the task at hand. The sun's rays do not ...more

** to **1/2.

Good introduction to method of loci, peg method, etc. but thoroughly contaminated with reprobate new-age power-of-positive-thinking self-help trash, and thinly-veiled advertisements for books, methods, and ideas of these unscientific and worldly self-help gurus. Unfortunately lists of these 'laws' and 'emotional, social, and sexual intelligences' (from the discredited theory of multiple intelligence, instead of unitary g) and 'attitudes' form the contents of the exercises used to int

What a pleasant find! I'm glad that I read this. I now have some new and very pleasant techniques on how to increase my memory.

Highly recommended to those who have a large interest in the subject. It does take some work but there are ways to make it fun.

I was trying to give the book the benefit of the doubt, assuming they didn't know about aphantasia, turns out they do. And it makes it seem like those of us with aphantasia are just hopelessly dumb. No, we're neurodiverse. This infuriated me to no end to the point I had to DNF at 28%. I'll work on my memory and learning the way that works for me. I know i'm not dumb or hopeless like this book would have me believe just because I have aphantasia. And I love reading, thank you very much. No mental ...more

I came across this book on Kindle Unlimited, as I've set out to prototype a week of using Kindle. Part of me likes to pretend that this is an attempt to go green, however with my binge reading it turns out that reading is becoming an expensive habit. Also where do I keep all these books!

It is a very easy read, and as per Kindle stats you can finish it in a little over 2 hours. However, I recommend spending at least a day with this book, so that you can practice the memory building examples offe

I downloaded this for free reading with my Amazon Prime membership when it was available. I give this book five stars because it asked the simple question, "What excuses are you going to make for not using the information that you are going to learn?" Wow, light-bulb moment for me as I listed the excuses and realized the truth of his challenge that they are the same excuses I use every time to stop myself from learning any thing new. His challenge is true, especially when I doubt if this informa ...more

Long gone are the days of failing to remember the genius idea I came up with while washing the dishes, or when I'm just about to fall asleep.

Kevin Horsley's Unlimited Memory offers up a multitude of methods to advance our memory, and I plan to return time and again back to the strategies I took down in my notes. The most helpful of which was visualizing what you're trying to remember and make a movie in your mind with a creative spin so it sticks out more easily in the

When I first came across this book, I was sceptical it will be of any help in remembering medical knowledge, since the kind of information we are supposed to remember as doctors is very different and can often be non-conforming. But the foreword, which was written by a doctor, urged me not to rebuke it right away. And I can safely say, I do not regret that decision.

The author describes numerous strategies to help one retain vast amounts of information. Something that I found instantly useful was

Unlimited Memory is the first book I've read dedicated to the topic of strategies to improve one's memory and while I suspect very little content of the book and the principles are new, they were new to me and as a result, I was captivated. I've already begun to implement the simple techniques like the car technique for memorizing short lists such as my grocery list by visualizing the items in places in my car. The linking technique is also easy to implement and useful. I'll need to set aside ti ...more

A clear, concise and very practical book. It brushes briefly through the most commonly used memory techniques and gives some very good examples on how they are used.
I will definitely start trying to put them into practice.

DNF @ 42%

Obviously I’m looking to improve my memory, which is why I picked this book up. Although it’s technically free on KU. The reason I DNF tho? Was that I felt it was more geared towards helping people memorise information for something specific like an exam.

It’s building memory palaces which is helpful when it’s just a finite set of things you want to remember. I am looking more for improving memory on a daily basis. I can’t be building memory palaces for every book I read because memory

Grandmaster Kevin Horsley's extremely informative book Unlimited Memory should be required reading and implemented in every freshman high school classroom. The various methods he teaches the reader are intended to aid in memory enhancement, and with practice are tools that can be used effectively over the course of one's lifetime. He presents the ideas in a fun and c

More of a tutorial than a book. An impulse buy in the category. Great tutorial on memory structure and how to implement, but as a book he doesn't have a single original thought written which was pretty annoying not to mention the overdose of self-help rhetoric. Stick the books on the matter written by modern day people who taught yahoos like this one in turn are just trying to score easy bucks off other people's expertise and break throughs. ...more

I bought this on a whim, because it was $1.49 on a Kindle daily deal. I have always had a good memory. I have never kept a calendar. If the dentist tells me what date and time to come back in 6 months, I remember. I remember things people say to me word for word. I remember names. I am a good test taker, because I can recall information or picture how it looked on the page of the text book. I can not recite a huge chunk of Pi or the Declaration of Independence or anything over the top, but I do ...more

This book is brilliant. I'm not a big fan of self help books as I find they are just narcissistic idiots giving made up advice, however this book was completely different than the rest.

I've tried and tested each method used and they all work brilliantly! They are easy to understand and really do increase your memory and your potential, and they're so easy!

The book is very well written and it is presented in a down to earth, normal way. No "look at me and my long words" as you seem to find with

What I enjoyed most about this book were the examples. Horsley explains in clear language the techniques and how to perform them.

I also enjoyed his introductory section about how your beliefs affect your memory. He encourages the reader to “catch” yourself having good memory. While I’ve experienced this in my own life enough to know it’s true, I often don’t take the idea seriously - that your thoughts and attitude really make a tremendous difference. It’s not blind, unflinching optimism, but an
