Former U.S. National Memory Champion Santos claims that having razor-sharp recollection can assist readers in all areas of life, such as increasing rapport with others, demonstrating expertise, or playing cards. The author supplies numerous techniques—visualizing words, storing concepts in one's mind, and going on a journey—whereby readers can remember movies, statistics, and foreign languages. An especially helpful chapter offers step-by-step instructions for remembering names using repetition, imagination, and the "name game." The volume concludes with a Memory Workbook, challenges, and advanced challenges.
VERDICT Useful tips for both young and old in building the ability to recall people, places, and things.
