Harry Lorayne's newest book, "Ageless Memory"
on March 14, 2008
I became a Harry Lorayne fan ever since he published his first book, "How To Develop A Super Power Memory." His easy-to-learn memory systems became indispensable at the work place. Teaching Mr. Lorayne's systems are one of the greatest lifelong GIFTS you can give your children. (I taught it to my sons and they almost felt as though they were "cheating" in tests, since they could "see" the answer right there in their minds.)
I have, as I recall, gotten every memory book Mr. Lorayne has written since 1957, but "Ageless Memory" is, without doubt, his best. It may well prove to be his "legacy."
"Ageless Memory" is well-written in non-technical, numerous, encouraging style. He doesn't waste your time with a lot of techo-talk or theories. He just teaches you shows how your memory naturally works and HOW to develop a "push-button" memory from the git-go. His book is results-oriented. I consider it to be his BEST book on memory because it covers SO MANY AREAS by showing you step-by-step how to apply his systems to YOUR own personal memory problem.
He covers, e.g., however to remember names, faces, numbers, dates, shopping lists, appointments, spelling, trivia, vocabulary, foreign vocabulary, stocks, history, playing cards, Morse code, speeches, remembering what you read, computer shortcuts, medications, how to cure absent-mindedness, even remembering Bible verses! He even teaches you how to easily perform a 400-digit memory feat. At the end of each chapter is a special "Mind Power" exercise that is equivalent to doing "mental pushups."
I would heartily recommend Mr. Lorayne's latest book, "Ageless Memory" to ANYONE who wants to improve his or her memory. All you have to lose, when all is said and done, is your forgetful memory.
