Buzan makes it clear that powerful memory has little to do with brain capacity and everything to do with skill, practice, and technique. One only needs to spend thirty minutes practicing even one of his memory peg techniques to see the realization of this theory. These techniques will leave you with the ability (if you commit and practice) to retain unbelievable amounts of information that is considered very abnormal by most.
I rate this book moderately because although it is useful and practical, it is not on par with most memory books in terms of the presentation of the material. Buzan's efforts in this book are geared to providing as many techniques as possible to permit one to discover an individual system that matches their preferences. Buzan writes in so much depth on each technique that the material is unnecessarily repetitive. Any capable reader will grasp the process quickly after reading the first memory peg system and easily identify the similarities among all systems thereafter, making much of the content excessive.
I highly recommend Buzan as an author on memory improvement and have rated one of his other books very high, but I recommend passing on this book and seeking out some of his newer material.
This book transformed my life and helped me excel in school and college.
I couldn't put it down.
I read every book I could find by Tony Buzan.
I read this book with my children when they got old enough.
The funny thing was, I could never remember the title of the book..lol
In this book, he covers a very brief history of memory, updates Hermann Ebbinghaus' research, (c. 1885),
and capitalizes on Harry Lorayne's methods to present a useful guide to memory improvement for anyone with that
objecttive in mind.
Highly Recommended particularly for students of all ages.,
this is the book! Although I just skimmed through the contents and chapters I can
already tell this book will definitely help me avoid getting Alzheimer's disease. Very
practical and the author made it easy to understand. Recommend it to all.
