A boxed set combining a book, a pack of cards and a chart - the aim to help you never again to forget facts or figures, names or faces, words or speeches. Dominic O’Brien starts by showing you how your brain works and how, like him you can go from ordinary to extraordinary, all by developing your brain skills. He gives you plenty to go on, a range of techniques to improve memory and instil confidence, a set of information that can be used over and over again.

Synopsis

The Brilliant Memory Tool Kit Tips, Tricks and Techniques to Boost Your Memory Power by Dominic O'Brien

In this highly original publishing package Dominic O'Brien reveals the secrets of mastering the art of memory and provides us with a basic tool kit for boosting our skills of memorization and recall. The kit consists of three components: a 88-page introduction to memory techniques that reveals the what, the why and the how of Dominic's proven methods; a pictorial memory journey map to be used in conjunction with the Journey Method, a basic and highly versatile memorization procedure that exploits the power of mental association to provide unforgettable cues for recall; and, lastly, a deck of 50 flash cards providing tips and techniques (and self-testing exercises) on one side, and, on the other, numbers and drawn objects to practise on, using the journey map or other tricks of the trade described in the book. The key to improving your memory is two-fold: knowing the expert methods devised by one of the most retentive and focused brains in the world, and practising them until you see marked improvements in your performance. This tool kit is all you'll need to train yourself to be a memory maestro.
