Your Memory Is Better Than You Think And How Anyone Can Improve It

Many popular books have been written on memory. Almost all of these tell the user how to improve their memory, and they all give advice that works. Thus, while this book will also show you how you can use memory aids and memory devices to improve your memory for names, faces, foreign languages, ideas, examinations and many other useful tasks, it does much more than this.
