About the Author
Labeled with a learning disability at an early age, Kevin Trudeau was convinced his problem was an inability to recall information. He read everything he could on memory improvement. Eventually, he developed his own program for memory retrieval and formed the American Memory Institute. His Mega Memory home study system is the most utilized self-improvement series of all time.

That being said, I considered the book almost un-readable. After reading the much better "Your Memory" by Kenneth Higby (the best of all the memory books in my opinion), "Use Your Perfect Memory" by Tony Buzan and a couple of Harry Lorayne's books ("How to Develop a Super Powered Memory" and "The Memory Book" with Jerry Lucas), I found this book sub-standard. Trudeau baby feeds the information to the reader, constantly assuming that you are stupid. The amount of repetition is unnecessary, and seems just like padding (why not just tell you to re-read it?). There are a lot of statements like "Ok, now stand up and repeat the words out loud", "Now do it again" etc... He talks down to his readers throughout. If you don't mind that, you'll probably like the book.
On top of that, Trudeau never gives credit where credit is due. He leaves the reader to assume that all of these techniques are his own invention, when they are actually just variants of systems in common use. He uses a variation of a phonetic system created in the mid 1600's but never says as much, maybe he doesn't know. The book often reads like a Mega-Memory advertisement.
Finally, Trudeau gives tons of scientific "facts" about memory and imagery without ever feeling the need to back any of it up with a references (Apple didn't create icons by the way, that was Xerox).Read more ›
Now putting that aside, there comes the idea of word association and image association to remember things, dates, people's names, etc. Those ideas have been around forever, and they work for next to no one. Some people really notice an improvement, while most have a very different reaction, or result -- they have a terrible time remembering the stimulous that is supposed to trigger the memory to remember the important thing they are trying to remember.Read more ›
Be very suspicious of 5 star reviews. If you happen to look at reviews on smaller websites you'll notice there is not a single good review...highly suggesting Kevin Trudeau is having people put good reviews for him on the major websites
