This is an excellent book. It is full of challenging exercises and helpful tips to boost my brain. I found it to be both entertaining and informative.

Although the book could use an update in the form of a second edition i found this to be the most complete approach to memory enhancement that i have found. From the very beginning the authors grab your attention and guide you through a well thought out program for memory fitness.

A friend recommended this book and I have to admit that I was somewhat hesitant. At 72 years of age I didn't think that there was anything that would make much of a difference in my memory. It works... You can teach an old dog new tricks!

I am very grateful for this book. There has been a very noticeable change in my memory the past couple of years. The exercises in this workbook have shown me techniques that I have been able to use to assist me in inproving my memory. I highly recommend this book for anyone who wants to improve their memory or keep their memory in tip top shape. The exercises in the workbook are fun and very helpful! I appreciate the humor throughout the book. Not at all boring!

This book is a great self help tool not only in the area of memory - but in using the power of positive thinking. Right from the start the exercises give you power to enhance your memory by teaching techniques to pay attention, to associate and to accept your own abilities. For anyone who has a tendancy to forget, you can learn your strengths, boost your weaknesses and even smile at them. If you fear Aging, Alzheimers, Dimentia or Senility - there is an explanation that is understandable. Medication, Depression and other factors that can alter one's memory are also described. I would recommend this book to anyone who suffers from or knows someone else who has concerns regarding his or her memory.

I have been interested in memory improvement for years and have followed the research faithfully since a parent was diagnosed with dementia. I found the memory workbook to be very up to date on the current research and more importantly understandable. It is based on research and provides a comprehensive program for memory improvement. Highly recommend!

This book serves as my personal memory guide now and in the future. It is well organized so that each section builds upon the next. Highly recommended!

The Memory Workbook is a must for anyone over the age of 40. It explains in a way that anyone can understand how memory works and what to expect as you age. It helped me to feel better about myself and my memory and helped me to realize that occasional forgetfulness is ok. It also help me to realize that a particular medication that I was on was actually affecting my memory. So I conslulted my doctor and my memory has greatly improved. I really recommend this book!

I¿m writing this review because I really liked a lot of aspects of the book. I recommended it to my friends, so I figured I¿ll recommend it to internet users as well. I¿ve read some other books on memory improvement, but I think this book was more engaging. It includes most of the principles found in the other memory books I¿ve read, but this book seemed to make it more cohesive. I think the other aspect I enjoyed was the emphasis on personal attitudes. It honestly left me with a new perspective on growing old. Also I felt the book spoke well to some of the sometimes-negative feelings I¿ve had about growing old (to be honest I was surprised by just how many negative perceptions I had that this book revealed to me ¿ and corrected, so to speak). Actually, the more I think about it, the more I can say I really liked the book and do highly recommend it. Enjoy
