Overview

A good memory is a powerful asset, both in business and in day-to-day life. It doesn't matter whether you're trying to remember the names of people that you've met socially or important information about a particular client; getting it right is of inestimable benefit — getting it wrong can be embarrassing.

This book reveals some straightforward but remarkable techniques — a few of them pioneered by those exceptional orators that ancient Greeks and Romans — which anyone can use to improve his or her memory.

Topics covered include social/adaptive memory (for names and faces); visual-spatial memory (essential for bridge and poker players); and factual, numerical and verbal memories.

The book begins with a preliminary test to assess your current levels of memory functioning followed by a discussion of the mental processes involved in the storage and retrieval of short-term and long-term memories. You'll find an introduction to memory training and straightforward instruction in basic but effective techniques for improvement. The tests that follow are increasingly challenging and designed to boost your memory power.
