Overall `Remember Everything and Manage the Rest' does exactly what the title says. It is clear treatment of everything you need to know about memory (`Remember Everything.....') from sensory inputs / attention, short term memory, long term memory, and how to apply these to practical effect - learning texts for example. It also combines this with useful computer tools to help manage information (`... and Manage the Rest'). It uses extensive references for key points, which I really like - I dislike the popular end of this genre which frequently asserts a proprietary system and expounds personal anecdotes. However it is not an academic book - it simply aims to be evidence based, principle-orientated and thoroughly agnostic.
There are people who go to the gym to learn how to lift huge weights or build great cardio fitness, towards no particular end - it is simply their hobby. Similarly there are memory books (although this book is NOT just about memorization) to which people turn in order to memorize several decks of cards in minutes. I am neither a gym-nut nor aspiring mentathelete (or whatever the term is). I picked this book up because I was looking for help with my work. I wanted something more extensive and practical than handbooks on memory related `party tricks', and `how to study'. I am managing a consulting company, in a developing country, running around 5-7 projects (variously in business consulting, economic research and primary research) concurrently, all of which I need to keep track of. This book is very useful to me because it provides information on how to improve my personal productivity, and that of my local colleagues.
