Product Information

Memory is a highly important function of the human mind. Without it, all brain work could be wasted, for there would be no other way within itself of utilizing past experience. Indeed, life or consciousness can be looked upon as basically a series of memory impulses in which learning and memory are either simultaneous or synonymous... Retention is the aim of memorization and it is strengthened by such factors as interest, attention, observation, association and repetition. In a sense, there is no limit to one's memory capacity.

Originally published in 1962, How to Develop an Exceptional Memory by Morris N. Young & Walter B. Gibson describes some expert-proven memory systems and methods. You will learn: how to remember people names, how to make rapid calculations, how to remember 100 objects, and so on.
