Memory is the means whereby we perform the largest share of our mental work. As Emerson has said: “Memory is a primary and fundamental faculty, without which none other can work: the cement, the bitumen, the matrix in which the other faculties are embedded. Without it all life and thought were an unrelated succession.” Memory: The Classic Guide To Developing, Training and Using It offers a simple memory system which will allow you to become greatly more effective, more imaginative and successful at work, in school, in sports, musical and theatrical performance and in play. You will be amazed at how easy it will be to remember phone numbers in your mind; how to file numbers, data, figures and appointments; learn a foreign language; and how to read with incredible speed and recall. With these tools students will shine in the classroom with shorter study times and dominate in social situations.
