How important is memory in your life? Is your memory improving or starting to slip?
Why is it that some people have a "photographic" memory and the rest of us can't seem to remember what day of the week it is when we roll out of bed in the morning without looking at a calendar? Isn't it amazing how musicians or actors can memorize musical notes and thousands of words?
How does memory work anyway? Are memories really stored in a certain location of your brain and recalled from a brainy file cabinet?
This book will address these questions and open your mind to what the current scientific thinking is regarding how memory works and what you can do to improve it. But a discussion about memory must include a narrative about what memory means to your daily life. You will find out how memory really defines who we are and what we can do. Discover the tremendous improvement in the quality of life that occurs when memory is improved!
You will also discover how your brain perceives and processes sensory data it receives from your daily life experiences. You will find out what your brain does to decide what bits of sensory data it receives during the day are worthy of moving to the next stage in the memory process which is called encoding. You will then visit the concept of memory encoding and the biology of memory.
Next, once your memory is "encoded", what happens when you attempt to recall the memory and what can go wrong?
Finally, this book reveals seven ways to improve your memory with all natural techniques without having to resort to drugs.
Hope you enjoy this book. Here’s to a better memory and a better life because of it.
Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Improve Memory by Craig Carter is not another one of those memory improvement scams. He cuts out the fluff and offers a to-the-point no-BS guide on exactly how to improve your memory with plenty of tips on how to boost it as well.
I especially enjoyed his introductory chapter, where he explains how we wouldn't really be who we are today without our memories. It's a dangerous concept and i love it. It really makes you think! I recommend this to anyone who tends to lose their car keys, loses train of thought while speaking, or gets in trouble for forgetting a birthday (sorry honey!)
Long story short; A fun, quick read with more concise, detailed information than one would commonly find inside a higher priced, 600 page book.
