It's one of the best books on memory I've ever read - and my shelves are groaning with all the memory books I've bought. This book is very different. It turns memory training into a fun, fast, super tool for everyone from kids to grandparents, from teachers to students, from servers to CEOs. The result? A better brain, smarter learning skills, and the ability to wow everyone you meet.
Nelson Dellis has the credentials
Nelson is the 4 time winner of the USA Memory Championship, a Grand Master of Memory, and the author of a wonderful children's book called "I Forgot Something But I Can't Remember What it Was." He is also a professor at the University of Miami.
Improve your memory with Nelson Dellis' book
Nelson, is also a great memory coach. I should know, because he was my coach. I'm the founder of the BrainFirstProject.com and at the age of 70 became the oldest person to have ever competed in the USA Memory Championship and earned the title of mental athlete. If he can improve my memory, just wait till you read his book and see how he can improve yours.
Try it yourself
Turn "Remember It" into a family activity - see who can remember the most. Get grandparents involved to help them sharpen and protect their brains. Practice it at school to remember everything from homework assignments, to the names of every single country in the world. Bring it to work to ace that presentation or networking function with perfect recall of facts, faces and names. This is truly a universal book. Great for kids, adults, professionals, teacher, managers, and anyone who wants to improve their memory.
Taking a peek inside
This book is also eye candy. As Nelson himself writes, "This book is no dry self-help tome. It is loud, offbeat, colorful, and oh yeah...MEMORABLE." And he is totally right. The cover is compelling. The table of contents reads like a superhero adventure from start to finish. The inside pages are loaded with bright color blocks, clever cartoons, and attention-grabbing yellow and red headings. This book is visually beautifully designed and user-friendly.
No batteries required
Yes, Nelson shows you that there is room in your brain to remember it all. Your to-do list. Sports stats. That recipe you got from your Aunt Jane's next door neighbor's grandmother. Driving directions (no GPS required). Your daily schedule. All the presidents of the United States. The names of the planets in order. That sales presentation. The key points for your job interview. The names of every single person you meet from now on. And even where you left the car. Nelson demonstrates how easy it is to remember everything you need to run your home and work smoothly. The result? Nelson will help you feel more confident, organized, and in control.
In Remember It! Nelson Dellis puts that concern to rest once and for all.
Even better, he's taken great care to visualize what goes on in the mind of a memory techniques expert. I haven't read everything in the memory improvement tradition, but I've seen enough to be certain that this is the most visual book since Bruno was writing hundreds of years ago.
This is important precisely because so many people have a hard time connecting the dots between the theory of memory techniques and the practical application.
Remember It! will not only help, but makes it possible not to finally understand what you need to do and how.
The book is not only well-illustrated, but well-written and includes suggestions for many of the "holy grails" of memory techniques, such as the Major and a full PAO.
If you don't know those terms, don't worry. You will - and your memory will be much improved as a result. I highly recommend this book to anyone serious about experiencing memory skills that will serve you for the rest of your life.
Books since him are more homage and variations
(Practice, practice, practice is the secret sauce to get even close to the pros)
However, even in everyday life the PEG system and ad hoc Memory Palaces are worth the time to develop!
Thanks to Dellis, I discovered Lauren Tothero's memorizing technique
I cannot make the Tothero System work, but the technique feels as if it should have potential
Memorizing a deck of cards is a cool exercise for short term memory; alas no real breakthrough technique
All in all, this book is worth a look-see, and a sure buy if this book is your first memory book
