From the Publisher
While we were working on the covers of the repackaged mass market edition, I was intrigued
to see that one of the authors was an ex-New York Knick from one of the great championship
teams of my youth. I read Jerry Lucas's introduction with some curiosity and was hooked
immediately. I, too, had spent a great deal of my childhood inventing alphabetical and
numerical games. (As a result, I can still recite the phone numbers of a dozen or so elementary-school friends from thirty years ago!) I realized that I still used some of these tricks, but that there were even more ways I could use letters, numbers, and symbols to retain information. The techniques are interesting and ultimately fun. Oh, and let's not forget helpful.

Then when I searched for the book that not only make me increase my memory but in reality gives the control of my mind to me, I also came to know about this excellent book Maximizing Brain Control : Unleash The Genius In You. You can increase the memorization power with different tips and tricks but taking full control so that there remains no door unlocked for your memory to be enhanced, you can always go through this book to add up to your memorizing skills.
Harry Lorayne has proven himself to be the master at increasing mind's potential. The thing is that there is no way that you would master any trick overnight but with the techniques he share with you that he have used for all his life and have benefit from them up till today. It is your time to get on with learning the techniques and get the boost in your memory while you study, play or even when you are hanging out with friends. The only thing that would make your memory perfect is how much you dedicate yourself to them.
The author has taught with his experience that how he step by step mastered the techniques and how you can become proficient at them too so that you can get the grasp on your memory. This book is worth having especially if you are tired of looking around for memory improving books. Just commit yourself to the memory techniques present in here for you and get the success graph go through the roof.
It's a great book and will introduce you to a variety of memory techniques quickly. Some of the more interesting things you will learn how to do:
* Memorize lists of ten items or less instantly, for as long as you like. Simple, easy to implement.
* Names and faces memory. Memorize a roomful of names and faces. Extremely easy to do.
* Memorize 50 digit number with the Major system. Some ideas for how this is useful - license number, credit card number, important dates, etc.
* The link system for memorizing lists of any link, frontwards and backwards.
* The loci system - very brief overview, but you can pick up enough to learn it.
* The peg system - built on the Major system, this will allow you to memorize lists frontwards, backwards, and by number. ex. Presidents in order and who the 17th President was
* Memorize a deck of cards
* Many applications, from public speaking to sports to party tricks
Not the last book on memory I will read, but a good place to start for anyone. You will learn enough very quickly, and there is much more to study and build on should you want to. Highly Recommended. Other books on memory I would recommend:
Moonwalking with Einstein: The Art and Science of Remembering Everything
Your Memory : How It Works and How to Improve It
Memorize the Faith! (and Most Anything Else): Using the Methods of the Great Catholic Medieval Memory Masters
Forty years later, schools still do not teach memory techniques, which amazes me. I bought this book to share with my ten year old grandson, with the logic being similar to learning a foreign language as a child: the younger you learn this technique, the easier it is for you as an adult. I totally recommend this book for not only school, but everyday life.
