I almost rated this book four stars. This book is a bit lazy, and many topics have been covered in a much better way in Dominic O'Brien's "Brillant Memory". But there are three things in this book that are not in O'Brien's book.
One: The system for remembering names and faces is superior.
Two: The system for the alphabet is superior.
Three: The number system is different and I think a little easier/quicker to learn. The caveat on that is that I think the Person/Action/Object system lasts longer and s better for long term memory. I still recommend checking out Ron's way.
I go to college so anything that will help me cut down the amount of hours I need to maintain a 4.0 is a blessing. This book did that and for that alone it is worth reading.
I can't recommend this book as the first one though. In order I recommend:
--Best Intro: Moon Walking With Einstein... Seriously, read this book before you do anything else.
--Then: Brilliant Memory
--Then: How to improve your memory in just 30 days
I'm also a big fan of Cal Newport, but that's another story. Buy this book, read it, absorb it, and have a good day =)
