If I may, let me comment on the description of the course. From websites, including Amazon, they do a poor job of describing this course. Precisely because this is such a richly detailed memory course, the descriptions do not give it proper due. Aside, the entire course runs approximately 6.5 Hours. This is a high quality educational product, including production, audio, information, instruction, exercises, and learning. I cannot give enough praise here. So, in finishing my praise, let me mention to you what is included with this course and show you why I enjoyed it so much.
From the beginning, I especially liked the speed of the course; it is nice and slow. Even methodical, not hurried like many Spanish audio courses I have listened too. Because of Dominic’s tremendous communication ability, I gained insights that were not available from reading his books. Dominic has an English accent and this lends to the presentation of the course in exceptional ways. The more I think about it, I found this to be an important feature of the course. Because of Dominic’s communication ability, I fully experienced his view on memory. Also, in doing this, I came away with an entirely different perspective on the techniques he uses.
I will state, in being an experienced user of mnemonics, there are not many new techniques available from the course; they have been presented in one form or another from the countless books on the market. However, Dominic’s presentation and packaging of his techniques are the life-blood of the series. His presentations gave me confidence in understanding of the techniques I rarely use. The exercises are not merely glossed-over and quickly described; they are shown in such a way that the listener is led through the journey of experiencing the techniques and understanding how they work, including being tested on the techniques. I feel that if more foreign language audio courses presented their material this way it would help alleviate many learning difficulties. In relation to Dominic’s audio course, some of the finest audio courses I have discovered are the Pimsleur language courses, also Spanish by Association by Michael Gruneberg. On the reading side, an exceptional book I recently read is entitled “How to Learn any Language” by Barry Farber. Of course, Quantum Memory Power is included within this group of language instruction.
In the beginning of the course, Dominic explains his concept called ALI. The mnemonic he uses for this is, “Mohammed Ali.” ALI- stands for Association, Location, and Imagination. This is the bedrock of Dominic’s teaching throughout the course. He uses ALI as a philosophical cornerstone in making the course memorable and describes it as “the three golden keys to memory”. Throughout the course, Dominic routinely refers back to ALI in his teachings.
In my version of Quantum Memory, I did not have access to the workbook. Although I assume it would be worthwhile to study, but probably not ultimately needed. As seen on other sites, here is a basic rundown of the memory course.
- How your brain operates
- To improve your decision making powers
- The exciting world of mnemonic symbols.
- A powerful way to remember directions
- To develop laser-sharp concentration
- How to ace a tough job interview
- Developing a mental fact file
- An increased sense of self-confidence
- To memorize a deck of cards and gigantic numbers
Below is an amazing oversimplification of what is contained in this program. Enjoy this product, it is the best!
Introduction. Dominic’s trained memory. Background of the World Memory Championships. Introduction to ALI: Association, Location, Imagination. Introduction to The Link Method easing you into LOCI or location method, the Roman Room or even called the Journey Method. Extensive practice throughout.
Names and Faces. What’s My Line technique. Using the “Line of business” to remember names and faces. Link names to places and locations. Memorizing Trivial Pursuit and facts. Introduction to number shapes. Using the Dominic System: “The Decipherment of Mnemonically Interpreted Numbers into Characters”. How about that? Introducing characters used as numbers.
Further use of the Dominic System with the Journey Method moving into memorizing gigantic numbers. Giving speeches. The Mental Speech File. Mind Mapping. Memorizing quotes. Memorizing jokes. Techniques for getting through a job interview. The Mental Fact File for memorizing facts-and-figures or details about a company. Creating a Mental Diary to memorizing lists, chores, tasks, to-do’s.
Learning in school. How to learn, how to learn. Memorizing music, important dates and other mnemonic tricks. Spelling and vocabulary. Spelling with patterns and clues. Foreign languages. Exercise: vocabulary in French. Intergalactic trip, naming the planets. Exercise: beating blackjack.
How to be a walking calendar. Exercise: A Birthday party with 100 guests. Exercise: remembering directions. Developing powers of photographic memory. Exercise: memorizing newspapers using locations. I believe this to be the BEST technique Dominic shares with us, his memorization of newspapers using the Journey Method. Truly Powerful. Must be heard!
Advanced tests, long journeys. Recalling past memories by using senses. Time traveling. The Zone and other states of mind. Relaxation and adjusting brainwaves. Card memorization. Memorizing spoken numbers. Bodily health. Dominic’s training schedule for the World Memory Championships.
The memory exercises he goes over really do work, and they're honestly not that difficult to learn. The course quality and content is world class. Some of the best teaching I've heard in years.
I'd also like to address a couple of the other comments I saw here on Amazon that almost caused me not to buy this course.
Workbook: So far, I've been doing all the exercises in my car. There really isn't a need for a workbook. If you have to write this stuff down, it pretty much defeats the purpose of using your memory.
Accent: From one reviewers description, I thought the course would be read by an Armenian version of Boomhower from King of the Hill. I was thinking,
"here goes, I'm gonna get this course and not be able to understand a word!?!".
Whoever wrote the review complaining about his accent is an idiot.
Dominic has a British English accent, and is the easiest person in the world to understand. It's a very light accent, and his vocabulary and prose is perfect. As a Native English speaker living in the US, I can honestly say that Dominic O'Brien is easier to listen to and comprehend than 90% of the people I talk to here everyday!
If you're serious about improving your memory (or remembering names, my shortfall) I highly recommend this course. World Class teaching!
I enjoyed the tape series and plan on listening to it each year or so. Thank you Dominic. You have done a great thing here.
