The author, Andrew Stuart Gray writes …
‘If you are a student then you are really going to find the techniques that are included in this book are weapons in your arsenal of keeping all that information in your head. You would probably have to buy MANY books to be able to find all the information that you would find here in just one easy-to-read volume. Research has shown that buy remembering creatively not only will you be able to remember AND recall more with less effort, with more fun and interest, but you will ALSO start to THINK more creatively and be able to connect information in such ways that you can answer questions more fluidly.
But memories shouldn’t just be used for remembering facts, you can also achieve amazing stunts with very little effort! How? Read on ….
One of the most important parts of stage magic is to convince the audience that you have gifts and talents beyond that which are naturally available to the average human. And even though most of the time they know there must be some trick to it, jaw dropping power will have them eating out of your hand.A stage mentalist often relies on tricks, plants and words, though the amazing Derren Brown has blown the lid off of psychological mind bending principles. What is revealed on every page of this book adds to this new tradition of pure skill, which cannot be faked or duplicated, and yet is so simple it is a joy to both show and learn.
After just five minutes of reading the first few pages of this book you will have the skills to memorise and recall a list of 10 items forwards, backwards, or at random, and with very little practice be able to do so in under 20 seconds. But that’s not all, you will soon be able to move on to memorise
100’s and then 1000’s of pieces of information
– whether it be the patter to a new trick, complex moves or the order of the tricks to your stage performance and no longer have to refer to written notes. Perhaps even the memorization of a deck of cards. Or even more! You can even develop this to card counting … – the bain of every casino.
Look at what you will be able to do
- Study and learn quicker
- Read a book JUST ONCE and be able to recall the text months, even years later
- Remember important key dates
- Memorise incredibly long strings of numbers
- Memorise a deck of cards – and learn ideas for magic tricks using this knowledge
- Remember complex directions given to you by complete strangers
Once you have become familiar with all of these techniques you will be able to choose the most appropriate for the job in hand and amaze those watching. Even in the smallest of gatherings the I have had people beg me to tell them the secrets.
This is not a heavy academic book! It is printed so that you will be able to take your time over it, at your own pace. Yet you can read it in one evening.
Similar materials take a long and unnecessary time to explain what are very simple and ancient principles – don’t be fooled by adverts on the web that claim that they are new!
This book crams 8 different techniques, including additional information on study skills, and suggestions for your power memory to start working, and how to use a unique and never before revealed technique of virtual mindmapping* – which I personally use for memorising huge amounts of information without ever lifting a pen!
I have personally trained so many people in how to use their powerful memory that I am convinced that everyone has genius locked away inside – and this book is as a direct result of years of people asking me to write it down for them.
From 8 year olds to the elderly – I take the greatest pleasure teaching people with dyslexia and demonstrating that they have the most powerful memories of all.
You will be amazed at just how powerful your mind really is!
Included in this book are
- Welcome and introduction
- Systems 1-8
- Virtual Mindmap®*
- SUGGESTED USES FOR YOUR MEMORY
- Lets start easy …
- What about directions?
- Telephone numbers
- Dates of history
- Card memorization techniques
- Tips on foreign languages
- Beginning to think like a genius!
- Timings – and how to review effectively.
This last section is crucial and often overlooked in memory books – but in fact it is very important when retaining information for long term memory and an understanding of the principles involved are important.
Even if you are familiar with one or two of these techniques already, I almost guarantee that you will not have come across virtual mind mapping before, anywhere. It uses every single one of the techniques to produce a rich learning and remembering environment.
