If you could sum up Memory Improvement in three words, what would they be?
works for everyone
What other book might you compare Memory Improvement to and why?
i haven't listened to anything that compares to this book
Any additional comments?
For anyone who has watched the television show The Mentalist you will be familiar with the character Patrick Jane's uncanny ability to recall seemingly every detail after entering a situation with his mind trick called his "Mind Palace". while watching the show you may feel that a memory like his is just a made up skill just for the show but after listening to Memory Improvement: How to Improve Your Memory in Just 30 Days i can tell you that it is a real skill and anyone can learn it.
this book is 30 chapters long and is designed to be read over the course of 30 days, each chapter (with the exception of 2, 4 and 15) is around 10 minutes long when listening and only takes a few minutes to practice the skills in each chapter.
This is yet another one of lifes skills that i wish i was taught in school as it applies to real life but for everyone on the fence about getting this, if you desire a better memory it takes a little work but not as much as you think to actually see results.

The techniques provided on improving one's memory (or rather one's ability to recall memories), were prolific, varied, simple, and well-presented. Well-presented, by the way, applies not only to the author's ability to skillfully and effectively communicate each process, but also to his light-hearted, perfectly-paced presentation of that information. Add to that a sincere "hats off" to the narrator, who recreated that thoughtful, focused, and fun attitude beautifully.
I had heard some of these mnemonics before (I've been using one or two of them for years), and was at first, pleasantly surprised to hear them being mentioned, then grateful for the refresher, and finally I found myself genuinely thrilled at finding that Ron White had added significant value to what I already thought were a couple of pretty cool tricks. One in particular was coding numbers into words to retain the number accurately and for long periods of time (I still remember the confirmation number for our Disney World dinner reservation for a family vacation about 15 years ago). He not only expands on the version that I had originally run across but provides a pdf that offers suggestions from 1 - 1000. Thank you Sir! Thank you most kindly.
This material works perfectly as an audio book. If your interested in learning some fantastic new ways to remember numbers, lists, faces, story lines, speeches, names, and a few other subject matters that I've forgotten (oops, could someone edit that line out, please?), then you just can't go wrong in adding this audio book to your library. It's worth the cost if you only learn half of the techniques presented.
