How to Develop Superpower Memory by Harry Lorayne
Remembering something is always better than not remembering it. The book is written for your average reader, which does get on my nerves, because the average reader is a memorg.

I am an entertainer and a memory expert, not a psychiatrist or a doctor, and I suer think it necessary to go into an explanation of the workings of the human brain, and just how the memory actually works in terms of cells, curves, impressions, etc.
Technology should be used. But personally, I have always been slightly irritated by my shitty memory, and this is a small step to working on it. Attempting to remember is half the battle anyway.

It should be understood when you read the book. The author knows how to teach his readers in the most simple ways. He recognizes the attitude of readers and very inspirational just lyk backbone to the readers from the first to last page of the book Cons: This book is a Bit Outdated.
Some of the chapters would be felt as useles I would frankly give this book 3. Some of the chapters would be felt as useless. Its like author had written some chapters like remembering names for the western people, other people would feel the names as unfamiliar to them. I would highly recommend this book to anyone. It was originally published in so some things are a bit outdated such as having telephone operators and calling people by their last namesbut the principles are excellent and absolutely still apply.
Memory is so useful, and I have found that by learning the systems in the book, not only do I now have the tools to remember faces, names, long numbers, lists, etc, my true memory has also improved.
Going over the peg words in my mind at night no I would highly recommend this book to anyone. Going over the peg words in my mind at night not only helps me fall asleep, it is good exercise for my brain.
I am very impressed! Nov 11, Nola Redd rated it really liked it. One of the first memory books, this looking for memory tricks will realize there is nothing new in content. While the text and tone are old fashioned, the majority of the material is just as relevant today – except the phone numbers, lol. Seriously, though, the method behind memorization remains useful, even if there are no letters.
