Publisher's Summary

Moonwalking with Einstein made memory hot, and now beloved actress and New York Times best-selling author Marilu Henner presents an engaging, personal, and prescriptive guide to enhancing your life by improving your memory.
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.

Most Helpful

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

Disappointing

Would you try another book from Marilu Henner and/or Marilu Henner?

No


Has Total Memory Makeover turned you off from other books in this genre?

No


What didn’t you like about Marilu Henner’s performance?

While Marilu did a great job of reading her book, I had to rate her performance low because of the number of time she mentioned her website and memory coaching. It seemed out of place, distracting and gave an infomercial feel to the book.


If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Total Memory Makeover?

Any reference to her website or memory coaching should have been mentioned only once at the beginning of the book, if at all.


Any additional comments?

Disappointing. While Marilu did a great job of reading, the number of times she mentioned her website made this book seem like an infomercial for her memory coaching. Also, I stopped listening halfway through the book because the tips seemed to be mostly just common sense. I am disappointed and feel I could find better use of my time and money.
