Strategies to boost mind power through the use of memory.
We think of memory as the thing which allows us to remember names, birthdays and where we left our keys. But much more important is intelligent memory, the system which enables us to have ideas, insight and creativity. It is not fixed at birth, it gets stronger as we age and it is exceptionally malleable. Gordon compares expanding your intelligent memory with learning to drive - it's slow at first but with practice becomes unconscious, quick and accurate. This fascinating book also includes memory plans to help us improve our brain power.
