After I read The Miracle Morning, I inadvertently convinced some Kindle algorithm that I am now seeking self-help books by the cubic ton (or e-book equivalent). This was the most appealing of all of the ones that were thrust at me. I started becoming more interested in improving my memory last year when I decided I needed to 1) get more serious about maintaining languages and 2) generally retain more of what I read. I had heard of the memory palace but hadn't really attempted to use it. This book was quite helpful in laying out several techniques for memorizing. I found myself feeling very skeptical about some of them: wouldn't you prefer to remember something because you understand the underlying principle or meaning, and not because of some silly mnemonic image you've devised? But I can't deny that the methods are really effective. I memorized some of the examples in the book with no real exertion of effort whatsoever. My other gripe – if we can even call it a real gripe – was that I can't imagine what I would need to memorize at this stage of my career. I'm more interested in reading something and remembering the salient points, not memorizing verbatim. But I imagine the author would chastise me for my "limiting beliefs." On the whole, I will say that the moment I find something worthy of memorizing I will definitely use the methods in the book to do so. As a matter of fact, I had better commit the methods themselves to memory before my Kindle Unlimited subscription runs out... Wish me luck.

    I was looking for a book on memory training after reading Moonwalking With Einstein. This book covered many of the principles I was looking for. A good starter kit for memory training.

Having read multiple books about memory improvement, I must say it was not a straight forward to understand specially on the application side, however I truly believe this book did a good job and presented some good examples. The majority of the ground work has already been laid down by the memory guru Tony Buzan which the author refers to in his book. I recommend this book for those who are new to the subject.

    "Perfect memory is a skill and not a special gift." Quite a read. My first book related to improving memory and self-help, I've been always a bit skeptical about these kind of books, mainly because I think they're full of crap. As with anything you want to master, it will take time for the majority of the methods described in this book, specially, at least for me, the peg sytem for remembering numbers. It's quite a challenge if you want to translate some systems to your own language. I was amazed "Perfect memory is a skill and not a special gift." Quite a read.

I was amazed by how I managed to remember (and still do) Tony Buzan's 10 intelligences using the body method or the 14 superfoods using the car method; it blew my mind. The main reason I decided to grab this from Amazon is because I really really hate forgetting, but my abhorrence of forgetting the stories from books or events related to a particular year know no limits. If I mix them together then it's hell on earth for me: forgetting the story from a book I read on some year. Ok, I know it is sometimes related to your level of interest but mostly is the lack or repetition if you really want something to stick in your memory. The author positivism was starting to pinch me in the brain. A highly recommended read nonetheless.

    It is a remarkable book with not only the rationale to improve ones memory but also provides for a practical guide to achieving this. There are indeed some seminal statements as well : "Learning is not a destination, it is a continuous process" and "If you believe your limits, your life will be very limited". The author quotes copiously from legends to drive home his points. The one from Alexander Graham Bell stands out : "Concentrate all your thoughts on the task at hand.

    Ідеально, що книжка чітка, структурована. Береш описану автором мнемонічну техніку і тренуєш її тут і зараз. Однак в цьому і недолік - лінь може перемогти читача, якому у книзі запропоновано замало конкретних вправ для відпрацювання технік. Тим не менш посібник практичний, зрозумілий і читається дуже швидко.

    I downloaded this for free reading with my Amazon Prime membership when it was available. I give this book five stars because it asked the simple question, "What excuses are you going to make for not using the information that you are going to learn?"

His challenge is true, especially when I doubt if this information will be different from previous attempts. I can recite the names of all 45 presidents, and not just the 12 he starts us with. I am still working on the number method and card method. Yes, I still have to ask some people to remind me of their names because I did not use enough of Horsley's techniques to make their face and name sufficiently memorable. I still sometimes have to ask my husband if he knows where my (shoes, glasses, water bottle) are because I was inattentive when I set them down. I recommend this book for any one who has an interest in this subject.

    I was trying to give the book the benefit of the doubt, assuming they didn't know about aphantasia, turns out they do. And it makes it seem like those of us with aphantasia are just hopelessly dumb. No, we're neurodiverse. This infuriated me to no end to the point I had to DNF at 28%. I'll work on my memory and learning the way that works for me. I know i'm not dumb or hopeless like this book would have me believe just because I have aphantasia. And I love reading, thank you very much. No mental I was trying to give the book the benefit of the doubt, assuming they didn't know about aphantasia, turns out they do.

Unfortunately lists of these 'laws' and 'emotional, social, and sexual intelligences' (from the discredited theory of multiple intelligence, instead of unitary g) and 'attitudes' form the contents of the exercises used to introduce each method of memory - contents that I had to - along with any other thinking, Christian, or thinking Christian man - replace with my own content thought up (remembered) while reading. For this alone at least two stars must be deducted, if not more owing to the fact that replacing vast swathes of content as one goes is not likely to make for efficient learning of the new forms. Between an additional half and one star must be deducted because the methods and their applications are not explained in exhaustive detail. Read *Memorize the Faith* (and anything else) which uses St Thomas's methods of memorization instead. It's better in every way.

    Unlimited Memory is the first book I've read dedicated to the topic of strategies to improve one's memory and while I suspect very little content of the book and the principles are new, they were new to me and as a result, I was captivated. I've already begun to implement the simple techniques like the car technique for memorizing short lists such as my grocery list by visualizing the items in places in my car. The linking technique is also easy to implement and useful.

I'll need to set aside time for the more advanced techniques like the number code system which I can see being very useful for phone numbers and addresses etc. Note: I read this as an audiobook which is likely the worst format for the book since visuals are required. The companion PDF is critical for listeners.

However, I recommend spending at least a day with this book, so that you can practice the memory building examples offered here. Horseley (who I now remember as a 'Horse' being lifted by Bruce 'Lee') has explained multiple memory techniques that grandmasters use, but in a very palatable way for beginners. Makes it especially harder to believe that he was diagnosed with dyslexia! Also, RESPECT. He breaks down techniques for remembering lists, numbers, quotes, deck of cards, and so on. Most importantly, he explains how all these techniques are transferrable to any reading material. Additionally, he offers a great Miyagi-esque pep talk for committing to practising these techniques as he continually reminds you that perfect recall doesn't have to be a god-gifted talent. You can get there through self discipline and LOTS of practice. Thoroughly enjoyed it and now I wish I had read this at the beginning of the year! At least that would've helped me retain all those other books better.

    I wish I read this while I was in school This book is a great tool for students. If I had been able to master some of these techniques before starting my doctorate, it would have made life a lot easier. I've already recommended this book to multiple people hoping it will help them out.

He presents the ideas in a fun and creative way, and encourages the reader to approach and associate learning with the same attitude. Some of the techniques are not new, and have been around as long as 2500 years. However, his excitement in sharing the material and encouragement makes even this older reader feel she has the ability and tools to learn and retain anything, from numbers, lists, to paragraphs.

    When I first came across this book, I was sceptical it will be of any help in remembering medical knowledge, since the kind of information we are supposed to remember as doctors is very different and can often be non-conforming. But the foreword, which was written by a doctor, urged me not to rebuke it right away. And I can safely say, I do not regret that decision.

    An amazing book that I am currently using to create my system of memorizing as it explains. Read it twice on e-book then purchased the actual book in January 2017. A MUST have especially if you have said to yourself and others "I have a horrible memory" FALSE!! You have a phenomenal memory!!!!

    A clear, concise and very practical book. It brushes briefly through the most commonly used memory techniques and gives some very good examples on how they are used. I will definitely start trying to put them into practice.

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. I had attend a few seminars on memory and it seems that most of them quote from this man Kevin Horsley and his ideas in this book, but it still makes me wonder if his ideas are original. If you split the book into parts and hand it out to someone and tell them these are ways to get better at memorization, help you in university, with your career...they will not laugh at you but also insult you. The techniques seem funny and hilarious. To be honest, I haven't tried out all the techniques, but I'm I had attend a few seminars on memory and it seems that most of them quote from this man Kevin Horsley and his ideas in this book, but it still makes me wonder if his ideas are original. If you split the book into parts and hand it out to someone and tell them these are ways to get better at memorization, help you in university, with your career...they will not laugh at you but also insult you. The techniques seem funny and hilarious. To be honest, I haven't tried out all the techniques, but I'm guessing they'll work. Part 1: It was about concentration. Learn to concentrate. That's it. You didn't need to read 4 chapters to learn that. Part 2: Create and connect. That idea sums up the whole idea of this Part. But if you really want to understand it, you HAVE to read all the chapters that follow. Most important point here was bring information to life (e.g. connect words, numbers, series of words/numbers...to images, to things you know best, like the back of your hand, there is actually a part for that). He also mentioned using your car for these memorization method, funny, I don't have a car, I don't even have a driving license, but I love this part the most and connected with it the most. What was even better was using your body parts to memorize stuff, anything, virtually. And finally, after all this create and connect, he comes down to linking these memorized parts which was pretty much a repetition of what was said in the previous chapters, summed up in one chapter. The remembering names chapter was cool. Look at the nose of someone and if that reminds you of someone you know, you could remember their name better. That's pretty funny but awesome and useful. Remembering the numbers method was nice. You should associate each number with an image or a letter and start creating a story with your images or a sentence with your letters to memorize a series of numbers. Apparently, his greatest feat, which is great, was memorizing thousands of the numbers of Pi. That's cool. It's like showing off your new Iphone that you bought but it's useless. What was best is that he tried to teach us stuff through the memorization methods. But I didn't really like that. Below are some quotes I liked: -"Hear a piece of information and three days later you'll remember 10% of it. Add a picture and you'll remember 65%" - John Medina -"Chaos is the sexiest excuse for laziness ever invented" - Bruce Sterline -"We all love to win but how many people love to train?" - Mark Spitz Below are the most important points: -SEE Principle: Use your Senses to feel a word, create its image inside your mind; Exaggerate that image like quadrupling the size of a horse, add humor to it since it sticks better; Energize your image by making it move, like a motion picture, a movie. -Remember words by splitting each syllable into another word or an image. E.g. Washington - Washing a tin -Use your car to remember (or any other transportation vehicle like a bus or an airplane). Attach images to each part of your car and you'll remember it -Long Term Memory + Short Term Memory = Medium Term Memory (what we need to improve) -Use your body to remember. E.g. start from your nose, associate an imagized word and move down your body parts -The pegging method was hilarious and I didn't like it much, maybe I didn't understand it truly. The first part is Rhyming peg which is like making a song for the series of information you want to remember. The other part is the shape system which is the same as the number method in a way. -Create a journey. From the moment your enter your house, you visit the rooms, PEG an image to each part of the house (maybe I understood that after all) and since you know your house too well, you cannot forget it. Or maybe use a shopping mall and divide your mind into compartments for each set of information you want to remember. -To remember names use 4 C's: Concentrate - Really hear the name of the person, repeat it, and (act) be interested in (his name) him; Create - associate an image with the name of the person or a significant feature of that person; Connect - Compare the person (their feature) with someone famous, the more the comparisons the longer lasting the name, or use the location you met; Continuous use = Practice -Number method (deeper): Associate each number to a letter. Listen to the sound of each letter and/or the shape of that letter and compare it to the number, see how well they resonate. 0 = S, Z, C 1 = T, D 2 = N 3 = M 4 = R 5 = L 6 = J, Sh, soft CH/G 7 = K, C 8 = F, V 9 = B, P You could then create a set of words for the numbers 1-100, if you want to remember the numbers, if they're random. You could create new words for each set of numbers. It depends on you. Oh, and each number was associated with a consonant, since vowels are considered as arbitrary (a,e,i,o,u) and w,h, and y are also use for fillers and blanks. E.g. ToMaToeS stands for 1310 * You can remember dates in this way* -Remember hard words by using Google Images and making a mind map with those images or a presentation to remember them more easily like a story -Creating mind maps are a good way too - imindmap.co.za -To remember a text verbatim, find the keywords in that paragraph, find google images or create your own images, create a story, and walk through that story. To better remember something, you could use different methods to remember it. -Use FLOOR principle for better presentations: Know the First things, Last things, Outstanding information, Own Links, and Repeated information (not explained in the book, so I guess you we must know what each part means). -You could remember a pack of cards in this way... -PIC principle: You must have a Purpose to learn something, have or create some Interest, and you must be Curious in learning that otherwise you can't memorize it (=learn it) well. -Practice (any) these methods for 21 days and they become habits -Review information/methods like this to remember them forever: Review after 1 hour, then 1 day, 3 days, 7 days, 14 days, 21 days, 28 days, 2 months, 3 months. You could review with the same memory method or different methods.

    DNF @ 42% Obviously I’m looking to improve my memory, which is why I picked this book up. Although it’s technically free on KU. The reason I DNF tho? Was that I felt it was more geared towards helping people memorise information for something specific like an exam. It’s building memory palaces which is helpful when it’s just a finite set of things you want to remember. I am looking more for improving memory on a daily basis.

It’s building memory palaces which is helpful when it’s just a finite set of things you want to remember. I am looking more for improving memory on a daily basis. I can’t be building memory palaces for every book I read because memory palaces actually require you to run through them regularly. Lots of repetition. Not practical if you have more than 10 memory palaces. But I did glean some useful information from the book, which does seem like a no-brainer to begin with. In that, concentration makes a difference. If you’re not aware of what you’re doing or what you’re reading, you won’t remember. Simple as. Guess I just need to be more in the moment! 😬 it’s not sarcasm, I promise. Something I really need to work on! Oh... I also forgot to mention the author was rather condescending. And did too much assuming and generalising. As if the only reason we all don’t have better memories is because our inner dialogue is us putting ourselves down and telling ourselves we can’t do it. Perhaps there are some people who always say “I have terrible memory” but really, that’s not everyone.

    I bought this on a whim, because it was $1.49 on a Kindle daily deal. I have always had a good memory. I have never kept a calendar. If the dentist tells me what date and time to come back in 6 months, I remember. I remember things people say to me word for word. I remember names. I am a good test taker, because I can recall information or picture how it looked on the page of the text book. I can not recite a huge chunk of Pi or the Declaration of Independence or anything over the top, but I do I bought this on a whim, because it was $1.49 on a Kindle daily deal.

I can not recite a huge chunk of Pi or the Declaration of Independence or anything over the top, but I do have a decent memory. I have never consciously put any work into my memory, so I was curious to see what this book said about how memory works. I definitely do make word associations to help remember stuff. I make up funny sentences or songs to help my kids remember how to spell a word or retain information for a test. I do relate things I don't know to things I do know to some degree, so I thought Horsley's methods were valid. I could not, however, see myself ever putting things on my body or on car parts to remember them. That just confused me. He created long stories that were too loose-jointed and cluttered my brain. I was interested to hear how someone else works to improve his memory, but I don't think it will change my own habits.
