Editorial Reviews

Review

"Finally a book that debunks IQ as the biggest key to success. Tracy and Ross Alloway have identified the single most important skill for determining a person's success in our modern world. The fun and friendly exercises in the book bring it out in you. A must for anyone who wants to unleash inner genius." (Dave Farrow, Two Time Guinness record Holder for Greatest Memory )

“A valuable guide for readers looking to put their minds to work.” (Publishers Weekly )

“Lucid…contains useful new insights into thinking well.” (Kirkus)

"The Working Memory Advantage is at its best—and its best is very good—when the Alloways provide exercises to stretch working memory...[they] make a compelling case that working memory can be strengthened through 'small but crucial tweaks in your daily habits.' It’s a lesson worth remembering." (Psychology Today)
