I’ve never been great at remembering anything. I carry a journal with me just about everywhere to write down important information so I don’t immediately forget it. And when I’m meeting new people, I’m great with faces, terrible with names.
So a book on How to Remember Everything, yes, please!
I didn’t go into this book with a whole lot of hope for me. Because, again, nothing much sticks in the ok’ memory trap. But, let me tell you, Weinstein’s methods actually work! Even for someone like me!
Jacob Sager Weinstein breaks his memory tips and tricks down into 11 easy to understand chapters with examples and memory tests. And I actually found myself remembering the lists and memory tests he set out in the chapters using the tricks and tips presented in the book.
Hopefully I can remember these tricks going forward, though, to be able to use them. 🙈
Thank you to Turn the Page Tours and author Jacob Sager Weinstein for the review copy in exchange for my honest review.
