Not sure anyone can add anything new to this field since Harry Lorayne
Books since him are more homage and variations
(Practice, practice, practice is the secret sauce to get even close to the pros)
However, even in everyday life the PEG system and ad hoc Memory Palaces are worth the time to develop!
Thanks to Dellis, I discovered Lauren Tothero's memorizing technique
I cannot make the Tothero System work, but the technique feels as if it should have potential
Memorizing a deck of cards is a cool exercise for short term memory; alas no real breakthrough technique
All in all, this book is worth a look-see, and a sure buy if this book is your first memory book

Comprehensive and worth every cent1 November 2018 - Published on Amazon.com
I don't write many reviews but I had to for this book. It is a modern, easy-to-follow book that covers how to remember nearly everything. I am impressed by the writing and love the illustrations which makes it even easier and more fun to read. The only down side is that I wanted to hear more about the author - a 4 time memory champion - and his journey to success. He covers it briefly in the opening chapter but I would love to hear more stories of memory competitions and the life of a memory athlete. But if you're looking for a book that will give an overview of how to improve your memory in a lot of different areas, this is it!

Wacky but effective ways to remember stuff.6 November 2018 - Published on Amazon.com
I have already used the techniques in this book to memorize my credit card number, a list of the first 15 Presidents, and a list of the 10 most populous countries in the world. There are many tricks illustrated in this amusing book, and some seem less useful than others, but overall I think most readers will find something that works for them.

This covers a lot more techniques than some of the similar books. Rather than being entirely a "you can do it" book, it is also very much a state of the art "how to" book.

Nelson Dellis manages to take complicated memory techniques and apply them to everyday needs. Already working for me - found the car this weekend in the car park no problem!!
