Your Memory: How It Works and How to Improve It
His class is amazing!
|von Kenneth L. Higbee|
I am currently a student at BYU, the school where Dr. Higbee is a member of the Psychology Faculty. His class (Psych 270) is based on what you can find in this book and it is amazing. Up to 90% of the students in his class were able to remember 40 names in correct order (after Dr. Higbee read them all out loud people tried to remember them and write them down in correct order).
This book kills every myth you might have and explains where these myths have come from. Dr. Higbee has been a master in this field for more than 25 years and this book is by far the best out there. It is not a technical textbook and neither is it a fictional book on how to obtain a super-memory. This book is REALLY GOOD!
I did not begin to appreciate the book until got to the Phonetic Mnemonic System. Exhaustive, practical, research-based. Unlike most memory books, Dr. Higbee did not promise results without effort. I've taught the principles I learned to many students and the results were outstanding!
Kills false memory myths; extremely practical; WILL help!
Dr Higbee reviewed literally hundreds of papers, books, etc, on memory. Here he distills what's fact & fiction. He teaches methods that really work. But, they do take some practice. The easiest ones can be picked up in minutes. Others take prep time & practice of an hour or more, but will help from then on. For instance, want to know how to remember long strings of numbers? It's here, it's easy (once you learn the technique) and it's probably not what you think.
