      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Pick up occasionally

      Master your Memory is written by Tony Buzan and was first published in 1988.

      The whole aim of this book is to double your current memory capacity, be able to remember perfectly a list of 100 objects in under two hours, to expand your memory and knowledge of the worlds greatest artists, composers and writers, to remember vital numbers and to remember anything!

      This book is available from Amazon for around £5.00. Its RRP is £7.99!

      This book is separated into different chapters and there is 20 overall. I completed this book a few years ago and to be honest, it actually did work. You have to take part in some of the activities in the book and it is well worth it.

      It is not boring and another old theory book it is actually quite fun with a few pictures, jokes and what not...

      There are lots of ways and skills you can use to learn different things and it is a little intense, I would not read this like a story book, I think it is one of those you only pick up occasionally to have a flick through. There is lots of technical vocabulary in it which can be hard to understand.

      As I said before, this book has been out for quite a while but it was republished n 2000,2001 and 2002. Therefore, it is not dated at all and gives you all up to date information that would be needed to widen your memory.

      This one really worked for me and it is worth reading sometime! I would rate this 5/5 for the simple fact that it was not a whole lot of garbage like most of the others were. You just need to concentrate on it and pick a quiet room where you can focus on what it is saying.

Countries/Capitals About The Book This book is written to help: ·You remember a list of 100 objects in less than 2 hrs ·Expand your memory and knowledge of the world’s greatest artists, composers and writers ·Remember telephone and vital numbers ·Remember anything you would want to This book shows a few techniques on how to learn in most enjoyable way. For example how many of you can remember Planets in order, starting from the Sun? Until I read this book, I know I couldn’t. MEMORISING THE PLANETS OF THE SOLAR SYSTEM First write down the names of all Planets of our Solar System on a piece of paper. Now check with the order I have written and see if you have got it right. This is in order from the Sun: 1. Mercury 2. Venus 3. Earth 4. Mars 5. Jupiter 6. Saturn 7. Uranus 8. Neptune 9. Pluto This is how you remember. You create a story. Imagine that you are standing in front of Sun. See it clearly, feel its heat and admire its orange glow. And there is this planet thermometer, filled with that liquid metal that measures temperature: MERCURY. The Sun heats up and eventually it bursts the thermometer. All you see is that tiny balls of that liquid metal Mercury on the floor. Next you see is this most beautiful little goddess standing right next to you. What shall we call her? Yes, VENUS. Then you see Venus playing with this scattered Mercury. Finally manage to pick up one of the Mercury Globules. She throws it in a giant arc way up in the sky. And this lands in your garden with a big thump. Your garden is on planet EARTH. Because of the big thump, it
      effected your next-door neighbour who is a little red faced and about to fume up. Who is this God of War? MARS Mars is really furious that he is just about to attack you when, striding you on the scene comes a giant. He calms Mars down. He has an initial J on his forehead that stands for JUPITER. As you look up to Jupiter, he is wearing this T-shirt with the word ‘SUN’ emblazoned in golden letters. Each of this letters stands for the first letter of each of the three big Planets of the Solar System: SATURN, URANUS and NEPTUNE. Sitting on Jupiter’s head is this barking dog called PLUTO, laughing his little heart out. Now re-run this fantasy in your mind and then see how easy it is to remember! This definitely works. I am still reading the book so i will leave it here until further reading. I hope you will enjoy reading this. Thank you!
