very practical

the beginning is a bit boring because the author exposes the reasons why it is important to improve our memory.
but we already know that!
the other parts of the book are very interesting and useful.

required visuals defeats audio books purpose

Good info but i will have to go over the book again with the visuals in order to make sense of half of the techniques, which defeats the purpose of using audio books for me on this book

I don't get it

I don’t get how this book as so many rave and dazzling reviews. For starters, not a single one of the memory techniques discussed here is new, original or ground-breaking. They have been around for decades and been taught for decades and Kevin’s recital of them isn’t new or ground breaking to create such a rave.

The main problem for me is that these techniques are great for winning memory championships but they are not so useful for everyday life as they won’t help you remember where you left your wallet, remind you of an appointment, outline directions to a place nor help you recall the events of the day.

The material can only be used to remember lists. If it could be used to remember anything else, you will not learn how in this book because all the examples Kevin provides are of lists like the list of Steven Covey’s 7 habits, Tony Robbin’s 10 Emotions of Power, United States’ first 12 presidents or the brain’s 12 cranial nerves.

Even then, the systems Kevin provides are overly complicated because to remember something as simple as a number, you have to do all sorts of conversions into pictures, sounds, or words. I mean for the number 6, you first convert it to either an elephant, sound of J, Sh, soft Ch or Soft G, or the word jaw. From there, you construct ridiculous words, sentences or stories from the converted pictures and sounds. All that to remember a simple number.

If you have dozens and dozens of facts and numbers to remember, the system will break down, you’re going to have too many rules and images in your head creating all sorts of confusion.

Kevin's book might be great for some as all these skeptical reviews suggest, but it wasn’t for me.

Great book

A little hard if you listen in car or during running. Yiu need to concentrate and get help from the pdf companion. But I learned a lot. Really worth the price.

Practical methods to improve your memory

Whether you are looking for ways to remember names, numbers, texts, or whatever else you won't be disappointed. There's something in here for everyone. He walks through numerous methods for memory improvement and explains how you can store information for long term memory recall. This is sort of a different take on a self-development book, and everyone will walk away with something. Although the narration was a little fast while listening at normal speed, that can be fixed and it's a worthy read. Invest in your memory and yourself with this book.

Great listen, fast and to the point.

I am glad it was a fast and to the point book. I’m now at practicing instead of just reading it. The info was excellent and easy to understand. Now it’s up to me to put it to use.

Horrible

Its endless rambling, quotes from other people and examples . he takes like 30 minutes explaining the same strategy over and over again with a different metaphor. this audio book seems like 15 minutes of actual story and the rest is complete filler.

Straight to the point with usable tactics

I've been a skeptic of these "train your brain" books. The info inside unlimited memory actually "clicked" for me. & I love that Mr Horsely didn't add a pile of fluff just for the sake of running up the page count! He jumps right in & stays on course succinctly:)

....now I guess I just have to go out & practice

I don’t understand how this got such good reviews?

All it is is a book of list and he rattles them off so quickly that you will be still thinking about number 3 when he’s already on to number 10 - horrible ...

My second Horsley book today

I think this book is loaded with useful information. His presentation sticks for me. I mean I think I will be using his techniques because he makes them seem doable and like something I will want to do.

Erst Geschwafel, dann nette, nicht ganz neue Ideen

Das Buch fasst im zweiten Teil relevante Methoden angenehm knapp zusammen. Der erste Teil ist leider viel Geschwafel.

Die Ideen werden nur für visuell veranlagte Menschen gut funktionieren. Dies trifft allerdings auf nahezu alle Menschen zu.

How does this have so many stars?

I don't usually write reviews, but I am making an exception for this book. It left me in a bad mood because I was annoyed with myself for even finishing it. There is no doubt in my mind about the author's expertise on the subject but the material was, in my opinion, very poorly presented.
I was not a fan of the narrator from the start. His intonation made every piece of information sound as if it were the most obvious thing in the world, but also extremely insightful and inspirational. It made the whole book sound like a cheap self-help book.
However I don't think that actually reading the book would have been much better. There are a lot of quotes. These quotes might look great on a powerpoint slide in front of a few office workers who are happy to have a few hours off. That is exactly what the whole book felt like - a well-rehearsed live presentation that was only slightly edited and put into book form.
The book is also very repetitive and the informational bits could probably be condensed to at most 20% of the book's actual length.
I am not blaming the author for the fact that I already knew every single technique that he describes, they seem to be pretty standard after all. Many years ago I read Derren Brown's "Tricks of the Mind" and he presented all these techniques in an interesting, engaging, humourous and memorable way without memorization even being the focus of the book.
If you have never heard of any tricks and shortcuts to remembering things more easily, this book may contain some eye-opening wisdom for you. If you have, chances are that you will find this book just as boring as I did. There are certainly better ways to spend half an Audible credit.

Straight to the point

The book is a great introduction to memory and gives you lots of options to choose what works best for you. Excellently done, no unnecessary repetition to add pages and no redundant information.
