Overview

Do you think you have a "bad memory"?

Impossible, says Kevin Trudeau, the world's foremost authority on memory improvement training. There are no bad memories, only untrained memories. In order to release our natural memory, Trudeau says, we just need to learn to retrieve what we already know. As founder of the American Memory Institute, Kevin Trudeau has already helped more than one million people do just that.

Each Mega Memory lesson in this book takes no more than thirty minutes per day and uses pictures, rather than the laborious word-association techniques of other memory systems, to activate our inborn memory. With this easy-to-follow system, you'll be able to instantly remember names, phone numbers, addresses, financial data, speeches, and schoolwork. Even better, Trudeau's system ensures instant recall and long-term Mega Memory. All you need is the desire to unleash your Mega Memory, and you can reap all these incredible rewards!

Labeled with a learning disability at an early age, Kevin Trudeau was convinced his problem was an inability to recall information. He read everything he could on memory improvement. Eventually, he developed his own program for memory retrieval and formed the American Memory Institute. His Mega Memory home study system is the most utilized self-improvement series of all time.

How to Use This Book

We are not given the world: we make our world
through incessant experience, categorization, memory, reconnection.

-- Oliver Sacks, An Anthropologist on Mars

How would you like to make more money, increase your intelligence, and impress everyone you meet? All this is possible, and much more, when you have a Mega Memory.

Imagine meeting over fifty brand-new people at a party, and a few hours later being able to say good-bye using the first and last name of every single person you met! Imagine making a speech without notes, or instantaneously recalling dates, appointments, things to do, directions, phone numbers, playing cards, verses of the Bible, lines of a play, poetry, facts, figures. Imagine being a student studying for exams and being able to recall instantly everything needed to earn great marks, and even more important, studying mation at the same rate. If you find yourself absorbing this information at a, fast pace and want to keep going, that's okay, too. You can study more than one lesson per day. But take a break after each lesson. That allows the mind to relax and subconsciously review the material you have just learned. After that, you can go on to the next lesson. Otherwise, you will begin to feel overloaded and burn out.

Do your studying when there is no distraction. This book is intended to be fun to use, but you do need to pay full attention to what you're doing and be directly "tuned in" to the material. Unlike other courses, in which you must review repeatedly to have the material sink in, you'll only have to read this book once. But you must make sure thatyou're focused during study time. So find a place where you can sit down and not be interrupted. Relax and be comfortable-and go to it.

Set aside a time and a specific place to study. Each lesson is short enough to fit into various parts of your day. Whatever works for you-the morning, after school or work, the evenings-is fine. And the only additional material needed to apply the lessons is a piece of paper and pencil. But once you've decided where and when you will study, try to stick with it. When you work out a routine for yourself, it is much easier to follow through and not find excuses to put things off.

Before you do a lesson, refrain from eating a big meal. If you must eat, have something light. I recommend that you wait a few hours after eating before you work on the program. Why? If you eat a lot of food or have just finished a meal, your body will rush blood to your stomach for digestion. That deprives the brain of the blood it needs to do its work most efficiently; therefore, your thinking and concentration are not sharp.

There are some foods in particular you should stay away from. First of all, of course, no drugs or alcohol before our lessons. Also, nothing heavy or greasy. And-this may surprise some of you-you should especially stay away from sugar and white flour for at least a couple of hours before you begin a lesson. We will learn more about certain foods and their effect on your memory in a later chapter, but as you begin the book you should know that sugar and white flour dull the senses. They make you foggy, unable to concentrate well. Stay away from them if you are serious about improving your memory. Remember that this includes sodas and tonics as well. A lot of people drink such things as they are reading, It's one of the worst things you can do. All that sugar and gook and syrup are going to negatively affect your concentration.

Do not take any notes while you are reading. We've been taught that if you really want to learn something, write it down. Nothing could be further from the truth. As you read through this book, you will see that when you write something down, you create the opposite effect. Writing some thing down frequently signals to the unconscious that it doesn't have to be remembered-after all, it's already written down. You should write only if I specifically ask you to do so or give an excercise that involves writing. Otherwise, don't even have a pen or pencil in your hand while reading.

Your Teachability Index

There are several other things we need to consider in preparation for reading this book. The first is these involves the spirit, or attitude, with which you approach these lessons. It's what I call your teachability index,

We all have an index, a rating, which determines how easily we can be taught anything. That index has two variables:

1. willingness to learn

2. willingness to accept change

You can measure each of these variables on a scale of 0 to 10. To find your overall index, you multiply these two variables together. Your score can be anywhere from 0 to 100.

As far as the first variable is concerned, I believe that when people invest time and money in books, cassettes, and other selfimprovement programs, they have a very high willingness to learn. If you weren't motivated to learn these memory techniques, you wouldn't have invested your money in this book, and you certainly wouldn't be investing your valuable time reading it. So on a scale of I to 10, give yourself a 10.

But what is your willingness to accept change? Some people are very set in their ways and have a very hard time changing anything they do. A perfect example involves the current computer revolution. Computers are taking over in many areas of life and have been shown to be very efficient and effective. Yet many people still say no to computers...

I have read four memory books recently and most are "consultative" type books that tell you what you need to do without the how, except Mega Memory. This book is very detailed in what you need to actually do to get a great memory. I listened to the tapes about 15 years ago and did not get a lot out of them because I did not spend a lot of time practicing or implementing the lessons. I recently read the book and spent a great deal of time on doing the program thoroughly (it took about 2 hours a day for 2 weeks for me). I have heard plenty of criticism about the program but I speculate it is from people who did not take the time to do each lesson thoroughly and or did not practice. You must put in hard work to get results but I can tell you from my personal experience the program is beyond amazing for remembering number data (like phone numbers, social security numbers, and credit card numbers) or lists (like the presidents or a grocery list). I memorized all my credit card numbers (takes about a minute) and all the presidents (took maybe an hour) and could not forget the information if I tried and have not had to repeat the information after the first time of memorizing the information.

No argument that Kevin Trudeau does have a 'super' memory- but its's a talent he was born with- it can't be taught. I used to work for a telemarketing company in the 90's who used to take orders for 'Mega Memory' for Kevin's system. He was charging 99.99 at the time and of course- he was offering a fantastic value since he claimed the tape series was worth well over 300.00. I had the opportunity to try the tapes myself for free- we had a set at work. In my opinion, garbage. At the current price he is charging- it wouldnt hurt you to try it for sheer entertainment value- previous prices were a rip off. A charismatic charleton.
