On one hand, if you are new to memory techniques and adult learning, this is a good and very concise primer. On the other hand I found it too easy to digest. Finished it in about an hour, so not much time to savour it. The content is good, I just wanted to have more stories, examples and the like.

As for the author - well he explains very early on in the book the secret of his success, its not a skill, its not training, its the fact he took and continues to take ritalin. Don't waste your money on this fraud.
I was getting frustrated that I couldn’t get through my reading quickly enough, and learning and applying the knowledge from the books I was reading and workshops and lectures I was attending was a little hit and miss. This book has given me skills that I wish I had back in school. People have commented on how much more I seem to be taking in and bringing to the party in meetings.
Knowing his work, I went in knowing that it wouldn’t be an onerous read, but I was taken aback by how simply he has broken down incredibly powerful tools. They are well thought out, supported with science and really, really easy to start using.
Being able to learn more effectively is the ultimate competitive advantage and the bedrock of all success in life. If you can do it well, then any other skill you choose will come to you.
I now read faster. I read a broader range of material. Retain more from lectures, workshops and books. Have better recall and can better apply the knowledge. I don’t want to say this book has changed my life as people may write me off and being a little glib, but it has certainly made it a damn site better.
I dare you to read this book and not feel both inspired and like you can go take on the world.
Fortunately I skim-read the early chapters until I got to where the actual content was, and I will admit when you arrive at this point he does have genuinely good stuff to learn.
While I couldn't help finding him still falling into pomposity in the remaining chapters I was willing to forgive him because he does give useful and well-explained lessons on how to improve the learning experience.
So I would definitely recommend this book, although you might want to skip over the early chapters.
The author tells a fantastic story, the techniques are just the icing on the cake.
I followed up on a language learning app which was mentioned and am back to learning Portuguese.
I expect to use skills from the book regularly.
