How to develop a Super Power Memory (book review)

How to Develop a Super Power Memory is one of many excellent books by the great memory practictioner, Harry Lorayne. I own three books by Lorayne but I borrowed this book from the library.

Lorayne has demonstrated his methods as a memory entertainer especially his skills in remembering names. This book covers a broad range of memory skills with lots of exercises and practical examples.

He starts by highlighting the importance of observation and says:
"There is no such thing as a bad memory. There are only trained or untrained memories."


Lorayne describes the Link method, Peg system using the Major system, Alphabet Peg system, remembering speeches, articles and anecdotes, playing cards, dates, long numbers, foreign vocabulary and names and faces.

This is a good introduction to many memory systems and is particularly helpful in demonstrating systems for remembering names.
