Overview

Learn the secrets to having an incredible memory. Give the simple lessons in this fast-paced, fun-filled, non-technical book twenty minutes a day and you will startle yourself with your ability to remember names & faces, important facts of all kinds, calendar dates, numbers, and where you put the car keys.

Begin to use your new abilities from the first chapters, and use these skills in practical applications for a lifetime. You'll be better prepared for work, daily activities, public speaking, job interviews, and everything else you do. Learn the tricks of the trade from Memory Shock founder Barry Reitman, with the same fun-to-learn material he teaches at the Continuing Education Departments of two community colleges of the State University of New York. He has also enjoyed excellent responses from groups including Long Island University’s Graduate Campus for Education, Coldwell-Banker, First Investors, Florida’s PAP Corps for Cancer Research, and trade associations around the country, as well as the New York City Police Department's Executive Training Unit.

Twenty minutes of fun a day for three or four weeks will take you to unimaginable levels. Many of the practice sessions are things you want to remember anyway, and most can be done while driving to work or school, mowing the lawn, or washing the dishes. These techniques are easily mastered and applied by youngsters and adults. For school, your job, or interviewing for your next job, feel the confidence that comes from being able to remember everything you want. Never again fear walking into a business function or party and meeting all new people. You’ll speak to each by name throughout the day or night, and next week and next year!

These are the secrets, tips, and tricks that make the art of remembering fun to learn.

Editorial Reviews

Awareness Magazine hwww.awarenessmag.com/ - Sonia Stoddard
"How many of you really wish you could remember the name of an important person to whom you have just been introduced at a party? Do you constantly wonder why it seems near to impossible to remember a speech, a sales presentation, driving directions or even just where you left your car keys?
"Worry no more! The Memory Shock method improves ALL levels of ability to recall, and if you think you have an awful memory, this is exactly the place you want to start to master ..."
Leasing News www.leasingNews.org - Christopher Menkin
"In reading this new book on improving your memory, it was both entertaining and informative. Make no mistake -- this is no game or trick, but divided into several levels, with the reader deciding which to reach for, or to re-read and study. I found it to be learning a new way of "thinking," of opening the existing memory, the attic as Sherlock Holmes called it, and bringing this out of storage....
If you have a child or grandchild in college, this is a must Christmas or birthday present."
The Examiner www.Examiner.com - Danek Kaus
"...Think learning how to remember things will be hard and boring? Fawgit about it....Reitman teaches his memory system to companies, schools, groups and individuals, and perhaps more importantly, he makes learning how to memorize fun with his great sense of humor. He frequently offers workshops to the NYPD Police Academy."
Amazon - Monica Harper
"...After reading the book, I decided to teach my 10 year old son the body part numbering technique to help him remember things for school. He struggles with an Autism-like disorder and I am always looking for things to help him be more successful in school and life. My son picked up the numbering system easily and has been using it to remember his vocabulary words, which he gets quizzed on every week. So far he has aced every quiz and [even more important] has a new confidence in himself..."

Meet the Author

Memory Shock is Barry Reitman's proprietary system of training in memory techniques, including simple, new methods of teaching centuries-old techniques. He teaches the program at two community colleges of the State University of New York and has presented Memory Shock at a two-hour seminar for teachers and graduate students at Long Island University’s Rockland Graduate Campus. He also teaches Memory Shock at the NYPD Police Academy.

Following a career in the sale, design and production of electroformed diamond products, Barry was hired as a nuclear component machinist by the Electric Boat division of General Dynamics. Fast-tracked into nuclear installation management, he became the senior shift supervisor of reactor component installation. During his Electric Boat career he was given special clearance to go to sea as a civilian on the USS Ohio, the first Trident class submarine. In 1983, he founded Keystone Equipment Leasing, Inc. in Bergen County, New Jersey. Keystone Leasing was among the first to successfully market equipment financing on the internet, starting in 1994. Barry has worked with Federal and state law enforcement on numerous occasions, including three successful fraud prosecutions, and has lectured on fraud prevention to the leasing and credit industries.

He credits the Memory Shock system with his winning an entry into the World Series of Poker Main Event in 2009.
