As you get older, you have to find a way to keep your mind sharp.  That’s all you got! Everything else is gonna go, but if you work at it, keep the brain active, you can stay mental there for a lot longer.  For me, names have also been a real toughie, especially when a bunch of people are introduced to me at once.  But the book goes through the methods of the experts, and gosh if they don’t work!  Practice is key, but I’m seeing improvements!

Decent book about standard memory tricks. There is nothing new or shocking here but it could be helpful for people struggling to find ways to remember the names of their co-workers. The little memory tests are fun and the book is well organized and easy to read. You can jump right to the technique that you are interested in.

Awesome book!!! I struggled for quite some time with my memory. It was never bad but as I moved into the professional world and began to study for my Real Estate Exam I realized I was just not retaining everything I read. I found myself selecting what I felt was the most important the exercises in this book is definitely helping me with that bad habit I ‘ve developed.

I like that this book explains memory from practical and scientific standpoints. The tricks and exercises are extensive and very helpful, but I think the most helpful part is the section early on that tells you about lifestyle changes you can make to improve your overall memory and brainpower.  I will probably be combining some of these techniques with mindfulness and meditation in order to create a more peaceful atmosphere and a promising new year. I received this book complimentary of third voice marketing for review on the amazon kindle.

My son had been having trouble lately in school remembering stuff. Especially lists, tables etc. I was looking for something to help with this problem when I came across this book. After reading through it, and taking the tests in there, turns out I'm not that good myself. I explained many of the tips and tricks to him and many of them are actually working. The scaffolding technique explained in vivid detail is really useful in academic learning as there is a lot to remember, especially during exams. I read through the book completely and came to know of so many scientific facts and research information which has increased my overall understanding of the subject as well. I would say that this is a great book if you have trouble remembering things or even if you think you are absent-minded. Just try it! I'm sure it will help in some way or the other!

This is a very good intro, must-have quick reference guide for people wishing to become, and practice, the most widely-applied memory recall techniques. The information per chapter was chunked nicely, making quick reference at any point or sub-topic of the book easy. I felt this book was easy to digest, though I skimmed over most of the last chapter; the last chapter felt like a summary of the book, but was too repetitious of the previous material for me to stand re-reading it all. Recommended purchase!

This book has fascinating facts about the early scientists and philosophers who theorized on memory. It cites medical/psychological perspectives that give it some legitimacy. But this legitimacy comes to a screeching halt in the second chapter. I cannot fully believe in anything that doesn’t give solid references throughout. These claims of technology and diet and inadequate social activity drastically affecting the memory seem quite far-fetched. That is what lost me.

Using techniques from ancient times to modern research, this is a practical guide to help improve memory and recall. The beginning is a little bit technical, but the book is full of tips and techniques to help get your brain working better and faster. Fun Quick games help you gauge your progress.

A hugely helpful book, that has helped to save me both time and money, as it has helped me to recover/remember numerous misplaced items or forgotten passwords. The short-term memory tests you can do are fantastic, and shows that it really works. The book is filled with extremely clever and effective techniques to improve your memory, that I'd never before considered. Information, detailed and yet simple to understand. Perfect!

While I’m not that old, as I’ve gotten in my 40’s I find myself getting frustrated when I have a hard time remembering things that are burned into my memory.  I received this book as a Christmas gift after discussing memory with a friend and have really found it interesting.  It covers how memory works, exercises, and other tips to make remembering various things easier.  A light and informative read for all!

This book gives a very good review of how memory works and ways to improve it. We all get forgetful as we age. Diet, lack of sleep, depression, medications etc. can affect ones memory. The book is divided into three parts and the author has explained different methods to enhance memory and advanced exercise for people who already have good memory but want to give it extra boost. List of nutrients that are helpful is also given. Overall very helpful book.

I thought this was a pretty good book, and interesting to read. I enjoyed the quick tests for short term memory, it was like a little game. I use many of these tips already, such as acronyms, rhyming, and visualization, but there were some new ones I didn't know. I'm hoping this helps my husband improve his memory as well!

This book discussed both short and long term memory and the things that get in the way of remembering, one being having such busy lives. The author has an interesting short term test for memory function and shows other ways to help to improve our memory. The author also mentions by reviewing things periodically this will increase your long term retention. I enjoyed reading about associating things that have meaning as a way to keep things in your memory. There is no better time to start working on our memory than now and this book is a great help.

This book was a pretty easy read, though some of the sentences were a little long considering the subject matter so it's not something you can gloss over and expect to recall anything. Some of the examples that the author uses were very confusing, but just remember that not every method of increasing memory will work for everyone. I enjoyed the memory tests especially.

This is great source of tips and methods memory improvement. When I was younger and had fewer things going on in my life, retaining new information pretty effortless. Multiple kids, many years, and a million little responsibilities I perform daily later…not so much. Some of the methods in the book I already knew and used daily (like chunking and association) but not very deliberately. Others, such as method of loci and rhyming I had actually never used. Armed with multiple methods I can use deliberately to assist my memory, I know I will be able to keep track of life and learn new info so much better. If you aren’t interested in reading about different theories and research done on memory, I would suggest skipping to part two. If you’re a bit of a science geek like me, you will likely find it fascinating.

If you want to have a sharper memory this is the book to get. It has excellent exercises and gives helpful guidelines on how to improve it in a variety of ways. It also gives a detailed interesting history about memory, the different types of memory that there are and precisely how memory works. It has a test at the start of the book to discern the individual reader’s memory strengths and deficits. From there it gives all types of wonderful pointers to have your memory work well for you in particular situations. Finally, it concludes by reminding you of some of the attributes that you learned to utilize throughout the book and then gives some insight for what you should do once you are finished. If you find that your memory has been letting you down lately, you should purchase this. It will assist you tremendously.

If you've ever found yourself forgetting something that ought to be obvious to you--"why did I walk into this room again?"--then this book is absolutely necessary. Having not used the methods here for too long, I can't vouch for how it will overall improve your brain's capacity for memorization, but the tricks and methods you'll learn here will help you remember specific tasks, messages, numbers and more as you use them. It's well-known the nmemonic devices are a great way to remember something, and this book is chock-full of similar strategies for retaining information. If you find yourself unable to remember things easily, you'll love this book. It's perfect for students or those whom need to remember information often for their jobs--but I think anyone could use a good boost or toolkit for memorization!

A book chalked full of helpful tips and tricks for those looking to beef up your memory. I liked the practical sections of actual tricks on how to strengthen your memory. Then you can put those tricks to good use and provides you with some actual practical uses. If you are a student, or someone needing to memories things, this is a book to get to help. Overall, this book does what the title implies, it has practical tips and tricks on how to boost your memory.

I enjoyed reading this book because it covered many tips and tricks for improving memory that may have been lost due to lifestyle factors or habits. The book also discussed what the medical community knows about memory and how memory works so it gave me a bit of insight about how to understand what outside factors could impact my memory that I wasn’t aware of before

A good book with tips and tricks to a better memory- once you get past the first part which deals with more background, history and the science of the workings of memory. Many tricks are familiar- acrostics, associations, rhyming- while some are not. (The method of loci, for example) While not everything may help everyone, there are enough suggestions that anyone can benefit.

An excellent look at memory improvement.  I found the book easy to follow and full of good information.  While I disagreed with some of the reasons the author listed for hampering good memory, I agreed with the premise of the second chapter; the healthier the body, the healthier the mind.  The author presented the methods for improving memory very well.  I also found that Part Three wrapped things up nicely.  The eleven memory methods and the concluding chapter provided a good closing to a good book.

Really helpful with improving memory habits!  This book shows how to train your brain to do a better job with memory .  It explains how memory works, discusses bad habits that hurt memory and gives helpful exercises to improve memory, including how to use association and chunking.  My favorite tip was how to use place, or “loci,” to remember, a strategy used in the middle ages called  “memory palaces.”

I've struggled a lot remembering college course material and have always feared getting bad grades so I decided to purchase this. It really goes into detail about enhancing brain memory and it really helps to explain memory, how it works and how we can use it to the best we can.
