Dominic O’Brien Eight Times World Memory Champion
Dominic O’brain was born on 10 august 1957. He was not really a memory guy in his childhood. As a matter of fact he was known for his memory and his teachers were totally disappointed in his learning abilities. Dominic share many of the remarks by his teachers in many of the books that he has authored. He presents those negative remarks against himself as something that is a proof of the fact that anyone can improve memory power by applying a few simple techniques. Currently Dominic O’brain is eight times world memory champion and is working as a trainer for peek performance. Dominic O’brain started practicing and developing his own mnemonics techniques after watching Carvello memorize a pack of 52 cards in under three minutes. This inspired Dominic good enough to start trying to improve his own memory. Dominic was bent on finding the techniques that actually work so he came up with a system of his own for memorizing digits. His system is called “The Dominic System” and is very famous among memory athletes. The Dominic system uses people, location and association to make it easier to remember dates and anything that deals with digits. He delivers lectures and has been active on many TV shows teaching memory techniques and performing memory feats. Dominic O’brain has authored several books on memory and below i am going to list all the books authored by him.
