The book receives a 4-star rating ONLY because it covers numerous areas of brain aspects for improving your memory. It presents more heavilly in the food and nutrition areas, however, it only lists the foods but NOT how much nor quantities, only a little bit of why. The author covers very many areas, but only in an overview style and talks ABOUT many topics but never gets into the details, nor deeper explanations and talks about memory techniques but NEVER gives any concrete examples. I was hoping for actual concrete exams or tests or exercises. It would be helpful but could be ten times more helpful if it presented actual indepth exercises.
This best memory book I ever read
This is a great book, teaching in typical "for dummies' fashion about a complex topic in simple and vivid language. I consider it both a great stand-alone reference book (if you're going for a basic understanding of how memory functions, how to improve it, and a bit of technical knowledge on the side), as well as fabulous "jumping point" for pursuing a more in-depth study of the topic (starting from scratch to medium-scratch). I have already studied the topic, and still found the book enlightening, practical, and so easy to implement into my life. As a college student needing to remember everything, this has been a very valuable book for me.
It is a great learning tool if looking to learn more about your memory and how it works as well as the parts of your brain, what they do, and how you can use them more efficiently. I have found it very interesting!! Though have never liked the "for Dummies" part of the title of the book.
This is a basic book. Essential items like repipetion and review of and re-review of stardards are not
mentioned. Life long learning is not mentioned, nor Alzheimer prevention are described.
An average book that should be brought up to date. RS
Very good book. This books offers a good and realistic methods to improve your memory.
Basic and dated.
This was my first "for dummies" book. I've been suffering from some really horrible side effects of a few diagnosed and possibly as-yet undiagnosed conditions that effect my memory. I decided to pick this up for advice in cutting back as much memory funk as I can.

Already it's helped me in so many ways, even despite the fact that I've studied more deeply into the psychology and physiology of memory and the brain and still remember much of those studies.

I discovered I already used several of the strategies listed, naturally, but also a few things that I'm doing that may be making my brain worse in addition to the negative effects from my medical conditions (deficiencies in b12 and vitamin D).

So many things were made simple that I thought were more involved. I now remember to take my vitamin supplements most days thanks to an idea that occurred to me while reading this. It didn't specifically give me that idea, but the suggestions got me thinking about how to troubleshoot my own problem. I realized I don't have trouble remembering to take my pills, my problem is I can't remember if the memory of taking my pills happened today already, or yesterday. Little weekly organizers don't really help me. I created a rhyming mnemonic and a signal to help out, thanks to this book. I turn my pill bottles upside down as a visual signal I have taken them. My rhyme reminds me: Turn pill bottles upside down after taking, right them at night, or after waking.

I've been remembering my supplements without fear of OD for a week now. Now I just need to figure out a way to get my TV-addicted husband to read it ;)
