Love it and learn a lot. I would recommend this to my friends and family.
What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?
This book has no actual memory techniques. The tips are relegated to taking certain vitamins, breathing exercises, and "you should work puzzles". The book description reads: "The audiobook is appropriate for those individuals that are interested in learning some tried and true methods that can be used to improve memory."BEWARE: NOT ONE SINGLE MEMORY TECHNIQUE IS ACTUALLY TAUGHT OR DEMONSTRATED. He did spend about 60 seconds on the "peg method". Even that, however, he referred to a memory technique. He did not actually discuss it, or better yet, actually TEACH something.The Title of this book is completely misleading. There are no Techniques. The Tricks are eating the right foods. And the Exercises involve different types of breathing. Frankly, the biggest trick is sucking you in to buying the book.The "Ultimate How-To Guides"? Absolutely not. If this is the Ultimate Guide to memory improvement, well, I'm sorry, I can't remember what it was I was just trying to remember. Amazon/Audible should actually do some real vetting of the material. Now, if you want to dramatically improve your memory, I would buy "Mem0ry Impr0vement" by R0n Wh1te (also on Audible). You will be instructed in a very practical, logical manner in at least 10 actual memory techniques, each one building on what was learned in the lesson before. And, guess what? You will actually memorize something while listening to R0n's book. R0n's techniques are simple, intuitive, and well grounded. You WILL memorize a 70 digit number, poem, faces and names, sales presentations, and a whole host of other things that you never thought possible. And, it's easy. The capper? That book was something like $2.36 which makes this book at $3.00+ a joke.
What could Jason Scotts have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?
Actually live up to the title. Lots of buzz words for a good "Google Search" hit, but no actual material to speak of.
Did the narration match the pace of the story?
The narration didn't matter. There was nothing to tell.
Any additional comments?
I will be asking Audible for my money back on this.
