You Can Have An Amazing Memory Review
I have read this book a few times and i found it to be extremely helpful. Let us take a look at what this book has to offer.
This book has been written by a well respected author Dominc O’brain who is eight times world memory champion. And here are the main topics that this book covers
First Section starts with the Dominc sharing his life story. Dominic shares with his readers every thing on how he progressed from a child with poor memory to an eight times world memory champion. Basically the first section is just an introduction to the author’s life and has nothing to do with memory techniques.
Second Section is where things start to get fun. Dominic sheds light on “how his emory differs from the memory of a normal person and why”. Really a fun section for those of you who are curious as to what makes a memory champion. This section provides introduction to basic memory techniques and theory. This section will get you familiar with some basic techniques, namely link method, method of association, journey method. Author takes you by hand showing how to use all of these basic techniques to boost your memory power. Authors also provides scientific evidence for joueny method. And then author shares tips for creating a memory journey. (for those of you who are not familiar with memory jouney method, memory journey method is one of the most powerful method and this is the method that champions use to break and to create memory records)
Third Section deals with advanced memory techniques. Author talks about how and why we forget and some review strategies to and then author introduces his system, the dominc system, dominc system is known to be the best method to remember digits. It is in this section that author teaches how to remeber a deck of cards. Authors also shares tips for speed memorisation. If you are not already familiar with the basics of memory techniques then in one line ” mnemonics is a way of increasing memory using a combination of imagination and techniques” and authors covers the “imagination” part of the mnemonics also. And then author shares his favourite memory techniques. And in the end author talks about study and mnemonics and how we can use mnemonics not only in our education but day to day life as well to have a better memory.
What i do not like about this book is that this book does not cover some of the basic techniques. Author covers only those memory techniques that he thinks are useful but there are plenty of other techniques that can be equally helpful. So if you are looking for a book that covers all of the memory techniques then this book is not for but if you are interested in Dominic and you want to know his personal techniques and how he bacame a memory champion then this book is a must read for you.
In my honest opinion this book should be read by anyone who is interested in memory development and this book is not really costly.The price as of today is $3.59
