Faster, Remember More and be More Productive
By Grandmaster Kevin Horsley
Kevin Horsley Broke a World Memory Record in 2013… And You’re About to Learn How to Use His Memory Strategies to Learn Faster, Be More Productive and Achieve More Success
Most people never tap into 10% of their potential for memory. In this book, you’re about to learn: How the World’s Top Memory Experts Concentrate and Remember Any Information at Will, and How You Can Too Do you ever feel like you’re too busy, too stressed or just too distracted to concentrate and get work done? In Unlimited Memory, you’ll learn how the world’s best memory masters get themselves to concentrate at will, anytime they want. When you can easily focus and concentrate on the task at hand, and store and recall useful information, you can easily double your productivity and eliminate wasted time, stress and mistakes at work. I believe when children can see results in their testing and memory abilities, their self-esteem will grow because they’re impressing themselves. I wish teachers taught skills like this in elementary school to prepare students with study techniques. In this book, you’ll find all the tools, strategies and techniques you need to improve your memory.

Adult Point of View
I got this book because I have kids getting ready for the ACT/SAT exams, and they are feeling overwhelmed. At their ages, they are unsure of their ability to remember everything they need to know. The pep talks about their natural ability to learn was helpful to encourage them to try the techniques.
I read one of the examples of a memory technique to my kids and they remembered the items very well. When one child was studying for a test, he went so far as to draw the picture for his study notes. On that exam, he only missed one question (and it was a question to draw a conclusion from the material – which he didn’t quite get because it was more obtuse when I saw the choices available for the answer).
I’ve enjoyed how he shows more than one memory technique so you can find what works for you. Our family is naturally visual and have easily adopted the techniques.
Rather than read it straight through, I’ve read a little at a time to absorb the information. I plan to read it again.
Some have complained that it isn’t ‘original’ but his delivery is excellent and is very practical showing how to apply the principals taught. The author also gives credit to his resources, so this didn’t bother me in the least. I highly recommend this book.
