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
