Albert Einstein said, “Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.” Marilu Henner takes it a step further, explaining, “That’s not insanity; it’s bad memory.” Known for her relatable voice, sense of humor, and life-changing advice, Marilu now serves up an inspiring guide describing how an enhanced memory can help you to improve the quality of your life, come to terms with your past, and achieve your goals.
In 2010 millions of viewers tuned in to an edition of 60 Minutes that featured Marilu as someone with Superior Autobiographical Memory - an uncanny ability to recall details of every day of her life - a talent shared by only six other people in the world. Here, in expanded detail, Marilu reveals the benefits having a great autobiographical memory has had for her, and then shares her personal insights and experiences as to how having a reliable memory has helped her in countless scenarios.
She also gives listeners advice in making memory work for them, from having the right attitude about life and developing a healthy mindset about the past, to building a personal history “track” and using it to actually change your life! Accessible, entertaining, and educational, Marilu’s latest is sure to resonate with listeners everywhere.

A little repetitive, but worthwhile and fun
Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
Yes, very interesting story with a few helpful tips. Was kind of surprised about the health tips at the end, but they actually made a lot of sense.
What other book might you compare Total Memory Makeover to and why?
Unusual subject matter makes this one unique (in a good way!)
What does Marilu Henner bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
Loved that she narrated it herself. It;s the primary reason I bought it. What an amazing life she had had!
What did you learn from Total Memory Makeover that you would use in your daily life?
Anticipate, participate, recollect. She covers this throughout the book
Any additional comments?
Fun and interesting and I came away with some good tips. Some of the activities (which are questions/things to do) might be better with the hard copy of the book though (since I am not often in a spot where I can write things down as I listen to the audiobook

Instructive and Entertaining
I was introduced to her and enjoyed her in her role in the TV series Taxi and have seen her in a few shows and small movie parts since then.
Years later I learned of her unique memory gift.
She was a consultant on the TV series Unforgettable which sadly ended after a year or two. That show's main character, Poppy Montgomery, played a part as a detective who had a memory gift like the author's.
I lean heavily toward audio books narrated by the author and this one is great.
