One: The system for remembering names and faces is superior.
Two: The system for the alphabet is superior.
Three: The number system is different and I think a little easier/quicker to learn. The caveat on that is that I think the Person/Action/Object system lasts longer and s better for long term memory. I still recommend checking out Ron's way.
I go to college so anything that will help me cut down the amount of hours I need to maintain a 4.0 is a blessing. This book did that and for that alone it is worth reading.
I can't recommend this book as the first one though. In order I recommend:
--Best Intro: Moon Walking With Einstein... Seriously, read this book before you do anything else.
--Then: Brilliant Memory
--Then: How to improve your memory in just 30 days
I'm also a big fan of Cal Newport, but that's another story. Buy this book, read it, absorb it, and have a good day =)
I am a 41-year-old mother of three and am hoping to return to school this fall. I was looking for a book on improving study skills to retain information because I believed my memory to be in sad shape. In two days I have learned to count in Japanese, I've learned the presidents in order backwards and fowards, a portion of the Bill of Rights and a foundation for learning and retaining that will be invaluable. They really should teach this in school from an early age. I've been reading it with my daughter and am downloading a copy for my son, who is also heading off to college.
I bought three books on memory (Your Memory - Kenneth Higbee, Remember, Remember - Ed Cooke and this one). The Higbee book covers a lot of background on memory and how the brain functions and may eventually teach me how to improve my own memory, but it's been a slow read. I have taken a small stab at the Ed Cooke book, but again it has been slow to warm up. This book dives right in with exercises and quick understanding to produce immediate results. I appreciated how the author used certain lists that appeared to not make sense, only to have them turn into valuable lessons further along in the book.
Well worth the money!
But the essence of his technique can really be summarized in the following phrase: "Your memory works with images. So any information you need to memorize must be first converted into an image". Of course there are many considerations you need to know, so for 3 and something bucks, it is worth it.
