Ageless Memory: Secrets for Keeping Your Brain Young - Foolproof Methods for People Over 50by Harry Lorayne
Synopses & Reviews
Harry Lorayne has been honing and teaching his memory systems for more than 40 years. Ageless Memory is the culmination of his life's work, specially geared to our needs as we age, and encompassing all of the many ways we can use a better memory every day.
Completely practical and easy to use, Lorayne's methods can be put into practice immediately—for a better memory the very same day you open the book and start to read! It's no longer necessary to accept poor or waning memory or "senior moments" as inevitable results of growing older—Harry Lorayne proves it.
With this one book, you will learn to remember anything you see, read, or hear—the very first time you see, read, or hear it—and retain it for as long as you like. You'll be able to recall names and faces, seen years later; never miss an appointment or misplace keys, glasses, or valuables; give speeches without notes; learn English and foreign words and phrases easily; excel at card and other games; memorize long lists of items, huge numbers, quotations, Bible verses, all kinds of facts and figures; and (most important) regain the confidence that comes with having a sharp, creative mind.
Diet and exercise are great—but what good is a great body if you don't have the mental capabilities to go along with it? Ageless Memory includes special "Mind-Power" exercises in each chapter to help keep your mind in tiptop condition, sharpen your creativity, and improve your concentration. And they're fun!
Lorayne's down-to-earth writing style and encouraging step-by-step instructions put superpower memory in reach of everyone. As he puts it, "My memory-training technique is the only art or skill I know of that you can start applying now, immediately. Applying it is your practice, and before you know it, applying my systems, tricks, and strategies will be automatic."
Harry Lorayne has taught his systems to everyone from corporate CEOs and celebrities to stroke patients and school children. His foolproof techniques will help keep your mind sharp for as long as you live—enabling you to learn new languages, go back to school, and beat out the younger competition at work.
