Are you feeling overwhelmed by the amount of information you constantly have to juggle inside your head? Have you already forgotten the name of that person you were introduced to only yesterday? Always leaving your keys at home? Help is here! Max Your Memory will clear the brain fog and make your memory fighting fit once again.
Pascale Michelon gives us the first visually led, memory-improving program to be fully illustrated with infographics. Accessible and non-academic, the book is a compendium of exercises, strategies, tips and techniques to sharpen memory. Among other topics, chapters cover short-term and long-term memory, organizational memory and memory for names and faces. Each chapter also includes unique “check-in” and “check-out” tests so that you can chart your progress.
Among the questions that Michelson answers are: What is memory? Where do we store our memories in our brains? Why do certain songs (or bits of songs) get stuck in our head? Does age affect memory? We see how to use the technique of “chunking” to memorize large amounts of information, such as long sequences of digits. You will also learn how to use the “link system,” in which you harness your imagination to create artificial connections or associations between random objects. Let’s say you wanted to remember to buy cheese, candles and paper napkins for a friend’s party; to do so, you could picture your friend wearing a colorful paper napkin tucked into his shirt collar, blowing 100 candles set on a giant gouda cheese. If you spend a few seconds thinking about this image, the chances are you will easily recall it when you are in the store.
Practical and engaging, Max Your Memory is guaranteed to improve your memory and hone your concentration.
