I just came back from San Diego and met Dr. Karsten as well as watched him memorize an incredible amount of information. I just finished reading his book and highly recommend it to anyone interested in improving their memory. I only wish that the book was available in a printed edition.
The book covers both the most effective and efficient memory techniques for today. And they are explained in an easily understandable way: the method of loci (a technique that dates before Christ), acronyms (one of my favourite tools), memorizing any sequence of numbers (with an astonishing system), remembering names&faces, safely recalling dates, facts, jokes, and much more.
I got to know the German version of this book in 2003. It was by studying this book that I learned the most profound memory tools. I had never heard of memory techniques before.

He makes it clear, in contrast to some other authors, that these methods can show immediate results - but only through a concentrated effort on the part of the reader. All in all, "Brighter" is a valuable acquisition. It opens doors to where one has not been...
