Ever forget where you put your car keys? Or forget a name five seconds after meeting someone? Forgetting is normal but not inevitable. Now, Scott Hagwood's "Memory Power" provides the solution. His amazingly easy-to-master guide shows you how to develop a great memory, no matter how weak you think yours is. Scott was just an average guy with a below-average memory who nevertheless went on to become a four-time National Memory Champion. The brain changes physically as memory skills improve, as Scott Hagwood knows firsthand. His astonishing transformation from mediocre student to international memory champion led Wake Forest Medical Center to perform brain scan tests on him with amazing results. The tests showed how certain memory exercises actually change your brain to make remembering easier and more efficient. Hagwood shares the secrets that unleash this inner genius within us all -- everything from remembering car keys to training the mind to juggle multiple bits of information at the same time, thus improving practical and creative ability. At age thirty-six, Hagwood developed thyroid cancer and was warned that severe radiation therapy might cause memory loss. He soon learned that simple, daily memory exercises could restore and even boost his ability to remember faces, numbers, and text. Complete with tips on keeping a memory journal, "Memory Power" uses techniques of sight, sound, smell, color, conversation, face recognition, and more to sharpen memory association and information retrieval. Through step-by-step instruction you'll learn the basics: how to connect items together in your memory banks; how much to absorb before a review needs to take place; how to relievethe pressure of remembering facts in social situations. Students who encounter endless facts to memorize, professionals who make presentations, salespeople who need to put names to faces -- all require the asset of a strong memory. Luckily, as Hagwood proves, memory is a muscle and needs only a little stretching to produce powerful results. You will discover the truth that an astonishing memory can be learned and is not reserved for the few gifted at birth.
