Memory Power

This is an an excellent book if one wants to improve his or her memory. I immediately made use of the helpful suggestions and was amazed how fast I could memorize complicated lists. The idea of the Roman Room is incredible. This has been very helpful for me in my course work. I recommend it highly.

Memory Power A++

This book really does address issues specific to aging and memory loss from a lay persons perspective. In addition, the author gives many pointers on compensation techniques to improve or enhance individual memory issues. I have enjoyed the book and as an educator and geriatric social worker working with clients dealing with cognitive issues and dementia, I have learned some new techniques to offer both my students and my clients in the field. A very good book indeed.

Memory Power will lead you to acheivement

If you have a chance to read this book, then you will find the way how to improve your memory. And also bring you to the place that you have never been through. This book is the one that you should make it through your eyes.

memory power easy to understand

I've read other books describing The Roman Room and other techniques. This book made it make sense to me and practical. I think that is the big plus of this book; the author provides practical applications.

Very well written! Very easy guide to get you started.

I had found this book after being interested in memory, and I was very glad I bought it. It doesn't get much into mastering the techniques until later in the book. The book is VERY easy to follow, and is organized well. I had a hard time putting down the book, as it's really interesting and doesn't discourage you with the too much information at once. I've bought a few books on memory, and I would definitely recommend this as a starter. The only complaint I have with the book is how he doesn't show all of the techniques used by the memory champions in great detail. He seems to much prefer the 'Roman Room' method, than the 'Journey Method'. There isn't anything wrong with this, but he didn't seem to mention the 'Journey Method' much, if it all. If you're looking for a beginner book getting you into having a better memory, I would highly recommend this book. Though, if you've had an advanced background on mnemonics and memory, most of the information in this book will not be very beneficial to you. I hope you too will find this book a great starter to your new memory.
