Instant Memory: How to Improve Memory Instantly! is another winner from the Instant-Series to quickly help one improve their life, this time through improving the memory. Just as if you lack focus, it is disrespectful and embarrassing if you are introduced to someone and immediately forget their name. It makes a less-than-stellar impression if you have to ask them again before the party is over. Or, when you go to the store, do you make a list, and then lose your list? There is a method for every situation and I learned a few from this book.

One that I have never heard of is the Mind Palace method. This involves imagining your house in your mind and the things you have to remember are placed in prominent but unusual places in this house in your mind. For example, if you have to get chicken legs, imagine several chicken legs running – disembodied – around your kitchen! The trick is to put a vivid memory in your mind that you can’t help but remember.

Instant Memory is a great book for students, business people, or even people who are very busy with their home and family life. There are methods to remember a list of things in order, which may come in handy when remembering where to pick up your children, or what meeting starts at what time. This will help me so much because often there are a few things I forget at the store if I don’t have the list with me. Instant-Series has a unique format for their books - easy to read, and easy to implement.

All through my life, I have had memory problems. It wasn't severe at all but definitely bothered me. I could remember not remembering where I put things or what happened in the book 3 days later. I actually began researching a couple days ago and decided on buying this book.

I read this book in a day out of interest and I am very impressed with the content. Content that I have actually never heard of before, such as visual association. There also were a couple of things that I have heard of for example the brain is like a human super computer that needs recharging for better memorization. I already knew about that but the book will explain it in great detail. It gives concrete examples of why it will improve your memory and how.

It has been 3 days since I read this book so I have used the methods mentioned and applied them to my daily life. I have noticed slight changes but keep in mind, this will not improve your memory instantly contrary to what the title may say. It will take some time to incorporate these methods to start memorizing things in a whole new different way, maybe a couple days for you to notice.

The way I think everybody does it is to keep forcing persistent memorization hoping things will stick, but once you read the book, it will give you that ah-ha a better shortcut way.

Overall, this book is really good at explaining how to improve your memory. The information is very well written with lots of content and detail.

Instant Memory is exactly what the names implies. It contains many ways to quickly improve your memory.

Reading this short book and following the tips and techniques described within it has helped me to remember more of the things I usually forget as I am getting older. Forget to write your grocery list? Well, visualizing the items you need in a strange way can help to cement the thought in your mind so that you can remember those items without a list. Need to remember numbers or addresses? The same type of visualization technique can help with that too.

After a few days, the tips given in this book have become a game to me. I try to remember things now without lists and must say I have noticed a good improvement in my memory.

several helpful hints

Improve your Memory was well written and held many useful ideas. I'm sure I will refer back to it time and again.
