Summer reading and training – The Memory Book

Many years ago, I bought and read this book:

Memory Book

It was written years ago by Harry Lorayne, a well known memory expert and magician. It’s a great book full of practical tips on how to improve your memory, and also shows you memory training exercises. With some training, anyone should be able to remember long lists of words, long numbers, the order of a deck of cards… almost anything you want! I remember that on my first read I found it very interesting, but I didn’t follow the exercises. I did learn and briefly used some of the mnemonic techniques, but after a long time of  not using them- most of it has been forgotten. After recently seeing a few demonstrations of memory stunts, I think it’s time I revisit this book- and this time follow through some of the exercises.

Should be fun!
