About the Author

American writer WILLIAM WALKER ATKINSON (1862-1932) was born in Baltimore and had built up a successful law practice in Pennsylvania before professional burnout led him to the religious New Thought movement. He served as editor of the popular magazine New Thought from 1901 to 1905, and as editor of the journal Advanced Thought from 1916 to 1919. He authored dozens of New Thought books-including The Philosophies and Religions of India, Arcane Formula or Mental Alchemy and Vril, or Vital Magnetism-under numerous pseudonyms, some of which are likely still unknown today.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very practical March 24, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The author has some very insightful viewpoints. He calls some of the methods used by "memory champions" artificial but does give many examples of historical people who have performed amazing feats of recall and offers some practical advice on improving your "natural memory".

5.0 out of 5 stars Learning how to Remember Everything! September 25, 2005
What an incredible find this book is. I have read others on how to build my memory but none as cohesive and extensive as this one. My memory started to improve as soon as I started doing some of the exercises. Don't let the date 1912 make you think that this book won't help you. It will!

4.0 out of 5 stars Old Memory Still New January 12, 2008
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Reading a book written in 1913 that still rings true today was a real joy. Found it to be a joy and much better than most of the more current publications on this topic. The practical advice is timeless and life changing.

3.0 out of 5 stars Memory, how to use it or loose it ! January 26, 2013
By Joe
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
We call on it every day to come to our aid,but we never stop to think how precious a gift we are born with. This book is a great insight on the workings of the human mind and how powerful it can be. It just goes to show that with a little bit of training we can improve our memory and help to recall some important data, that otherwise might be lost. Thiis is an interesting read for anybody who might like to improve their memory .

5.0 out of 5 stars The Art of Mastering One's Memory July 6, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book may be over a century old, but it's still good! In this age of artificial memory makers, human memorization has been increasingly denigrated. Atkinson shows how important it is to cultivate the mind to recall facts, figures, and situations through observation and association. All it takes is practice and exercising the senses! I highly recommend this book to everybody!
