If you allow this book to change the way you learn, then this book is easily worth 20x the cover price for the keys and tools Horsley provides you with because you'll finally be able to overcome that old adage that claims that we only use about 10% of our brains.
Like most of us, I've always just accepted the limitations that seem inherent with owning a brain, and I've become satisfied that I'll never be able to use more than "10%" as if it is not even realistic to tap into significantly more than that. However, this book invites you to throw away those limitations and strive for more. And Horsley's methods are not difficult to put into practice. They only require commitment, practice, and review. He compares it to taking your mind to the gym for a regular workout.
Some of the strategies that he teaches near the beginning of the book may sound familiar to you, but read on. All the way through to the end. Have fun with the book. Practice what he is teaching you at each and every step along the way. You'll find some of the methods more useful to you than others, but you will find all of them legitimately helpful. Use any information that you want to learn as your training material, and you will see for yourself that these methods work. I'm not even going to give you any examples in this review because you really need to experience it for yourself.
I will say this... usually, after I read a book, I never read it again. Not so with this one. This book is worth my reading every week because I want to practice, learn, and remember all of these methods. Horsley says, "Your mind is the only computer in the world with this characteristic: the more you put into it, the more it holds." His methods illustrate this truth very clearly.
I only wish I could have discovered this book when I was in high school or college. The great thing about learning though is that you always have opportunities to learn more, and all of us could use these methods to be more successful in any area of our lives, personal or professional. This book is going to open up an unlimited world to you, if you are willing to make some changes in the way you think.
It starts off with getting your thinking correct, and how to get out of your own way and reframe what you think about, and how you think about things. Then goes on to concentration. This part was HUGE for me, as I have a case of 'monkey mind', and find concentrating and laser focus to be non-existant.....that was until I read this book. Then he goes on to give you many examples for how to learn, file, organize, and get information back, as well as HOW OFTEN AND EXACTLY HOW to review material for maximum retention and recall. Now as a college student this was gold!
I've gone from taking days and weeks to get material by saying it over and over in my head (which isn't effective and Kevin points out why), and then never really remembering half of what I've wasted all that time repeating to myself......to going to taking mere hours to study something, and just the next day being able to recall everything, forwards AND backwards.
I actually feel like I'm cheating by using this system. But don't be fooled.....you have to put in the work. It's not a magic pill. But to me it doesn't feel like work because the material is fun.
Do yourself a favor and get this book, if it wasn't for you memory, who would you be?

I must warn you, however: this book offers you a tool, a bit like how a mechanic owns a wrench. If the mechanic tries to open stiff bolts with his bare hands when the wrench is in reach of him, he has no right to complain about not being able to open that bolt. The same applies here; you must work using the tools given to be able to see the improvement.
Next up on the reading list was this book. Initially the idea of attempting memory techniques was daunting but Kevin has written this book fantastically. Easy to read with fantastic examples to "prove" that this really works. Ive gained a significant amount of confidence from reading this book. Now remembering a group of peoples names is no longer daunting and I am excited to start learning again.
The only thing I wish there was more of are examples and/or follow up reading recommendations. I will be reading through some of the items in Bibliography but I highly doubt they will be as easy and enjoyable to read as this book.
Overall the book is a great read and a must for anyone looking to improve there memory.
The only criticism I would have is there are little practical activities to allow you to develop your "memory abilities", after finishing the book, like online games or activities. However, I plan to create a detailed mind map about the book, and try multiple practical tasks to improve my memory abillity more indepth.
I'm not overexaggerating when I say it feels like literally over half the book is filler. He keeps quoting the same people, leaves a bunch of spaces and extra pages to stretch the count, and once even rewrote the same paragraph.
This is 20 pages of content stretched to 160, and I put 160 pages in many quotes. He keeps repeating the same things in different ways, keeps making general statements and again so very clearly tries to stretch the book. There is zero depth to it.
I only write this to warn others of the same possible frustrations. I really think the author could have put a lot more thought and added more layers to this.
My only minor gripe is the book could have been organised better, I have to to take notes, mind and linear map this book to get what I want from it & the book is written in a self help style which was slightly annoying!
That said, overall I’m pleased with the solid information this good book delivered! 👍🇬🇧
This book explores the reasons to improve your memory and explains how it takes dedicated practice to see a positive result. Much like going to the gym, exercising the memory sees incremental improvements as you continue using the techniques.
Various memory techniques are taught here, like the well known Mind Palace technique, as well as variations upon this, using transportation and your own body to create mind pegs.
The author also teaches methods to remember large numbers and how to remember decks of playing cards. These are always good for a party trick and to strengthen your memory in general.
There is plenty to learn and keep you engaged in this book, although I wish there had been a dedicated chapter on memory techniques for language learning, which was my primary reason for buying this. I'm not entirely sure if the techniques taught here would be ideal for long term goals like this
That aside, I enjoyed reading this and whilst I already knew many of the techniques taught within the pages, I feel it'd make a good introduction to this topic.
This is short, accessible and offers up some useful tips. Worth a read and also worth practicing some of the techniques espoused by the author.
I haven't come across many books as this one, in which all information presented is "quality" information. There is nothing to take away. Much more than a book about memory, the author shared with us principles that can also be used for self-development: discipline, focus...
I have really enjoyed the book and really want to work on my memory.
Some people may find this book a little basic but it does the trick for me! This book is a good start for anyone who wants to improve their memory.
A: Because people read books and forget, read and forget and this continues. Reading this book will enable the reader to put an end to this tradition. Permanently. . .
That is if you choose to implement the tried and tested methods by the critically acclaimed happy author. No circumlocution, the books is concise with beautiful quotes appearing frequently to keep the reader enthralled, such that if you start reading, you will only stop when you finish the book - admirable.
I only with if Amazon can turn the flashcards sharing on so it will save user time and increase reading productivity for Kindle format buyers.
