3.0 von 5 Sternen Gute Anregungen zum Gedächtnistraining 26. Oktober 2014
Von Marc Said
Der Autor hat viele Gedächtniswettbewerbe gewonnen. Das Buch ist aber eher eine Enttäuschung, da kein Hintergrundwissen vermittelt wird, warum O'Brien's Methoden das Gedächtnis verbessern könnten. Ich bezweifle, dass jedem damit geholfen werden kann. Im Prinzip erklärt O'Brien wie er sein Gedächtnis trainiert - das muss sich nicht auf andere Personen übertragen lassen.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Fantastisch 25. April 2013
Von Benjisax

Mein Studium ist gemeistert! O'Brien hat daran sicherlich seinen Anteil. Das wohl einzige Buch mit konkretem Praxisbezug. Alle Tipps und Tricks sind in einzelne/kurze Kapitel gegliedert und man kann stets nachschlagen. Als Lehrer benutze ich es auch gerne in der Schule!

3.0 von 5 Sternen Too much too fast 20. Oktober 2009
Von Radek - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
I am an avid reader and I'm constantly looking for ways to improve my retention of what I have read. I have no doubt that Mr. O'Brien is a master of what he does. However, it doesn't translate well into the written word.

As of this writing, I have covered about half of this book. There are numerous exercises to "prove" to you that the technique works, but after doing one set and going on to the next, it is easy to forget the first.

Mr. O'Brien uses several different techniques to train/improve the memory. Most of them are all classics that can be found in several other sources.

There is no real consistency throughout the book. Different situations require that the reader use a different techique. Since no one works in all situations, you have to master all of them. This takes up a lot of time.

One saving grace is that by using these techniques, the reader has to really concentrate on what is being read. Just by increasing one's awareness and focus while reading, will increase retention.

It is a good read. Hardly practical or efficient.

I would like to find some technique that can be applied to a wider variety of situations. This way, there would be less to remember initially, less time invested, and greater comprehension. Maybe I'm looking for too much.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Helpful but rather dry and at least one serious error 14. Juni 2014
Von pond-jumper - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
This little gem is packed with all sorts of tricks to make short-term memory a snap. And let's face it, short-term is mostly what we use. After we've bought the groceries, how much longer do we need to remember that shopping list? This is not to say you can't stretch some memorized facts to a much longer term, like to the end of the school year for that final exam, or retaining seldom-seen people's names for as long as you work for that big company.

The book is a fresh take, with new ideas, on the older memory books sold by Harry Lorayne (who built upon a history of two thousand years of memory techniques). At the heart of it, though, you're still using your imagination and wild, absurd, comical images to relate a fact you need to memorize to a place, an event, a number, or something called "memory of loci" (such as rooms in your house, etc.). Kudos to Dominic for bringing the latter back after the Middle Ages suppressed it.

Dominic adds some fresh ideas to the established ways, or reintroduces methods that Harry and those before him didn't mention. An example of the former: How I Wish I Could Enumerate Pi Easily (3.1415926, the number of letters in each word). Or the latter, as an extended acronym: Richard Of York Gave Battle In Vain (ROYGBIV, colors in the rainbow). For the music majors among us, Father Charles Goes Down And Ends Battle (learn some music theory if you don't understand that).

One place where the book is seriously in error is section 44, Binary Numbers. Dominic does the obvious, turning triplets into base 10 numbers. Unfortunately, he apparently has never written a computer program, nor even just a small script. His numbers are SERIOUSLY WRONG. If you don't know binary, don't worry. For the rest of us, encountering this section is like driving down the highway at high speed then suddenly throwing the tranny into Park. Something akin to a controlled crash, and it is seriously distracting. Dominic writes: 000=0 001=1 011=2 111=3 110=4 100=5 010=6 101=7. I think most of us will recognize that 0 and 1 are correct, but 2 through 7 are something from Behind the Looking Glass that Alice must have lent to Dominic. I used a lot of white-out on these pages and elsewhere that reference them.

Though not "wrong," Dominic flies in the face of centuries, sometimes millenia, in other sections. For days of the week, he uses Sun-Sat values of 1,2,3,4,5,6,0. Mathematicians have for centuries used 0,1,2,3,4,5,6. Dominic's premise remains intact, but his make-your-own-road reinvention requires us to forget what we've learned since childhood, ignore what the world has used for hundreds of years, and learn a new ordinal system for days of the week. Yes, I did some serious editing of this section to bring his written work and ideas inline with the customary ordinal system.

The same can be said for his numeral mnemonics. He has his own phonetic choice, the Dominic System, where 0=O 1=A 2=B 3=C 4=D 5=E 6=S 7=G 8=H 9=N. I have to take serious exception to his choices, not because he's thrown away the centuries-old Mnemonic Major System, but because his system does not permit the full phonetic sounds of the Engish language to be used. Where is L and F/V, for example? We can't contrive the words LoVe, ViaL (PHiaL), ViLe, eViL or LoVeLy using his choice of phonetics. There's no M, N or R. Also we have 3=C and 6=S, so either we have an ambiguous choice for S/Z sounds, or the 3=C should actually be 3=K (K, CH and hard C as in cookie). True, I would have to unlearn what I already know, what millions of people know, and drop the Major System to adopt Dominic's, but with such weakness apparent in his choices, why would I? It was too much effort to edit his text in these chapters, so I just took the high points (which are very good, by the way), and applied them to the the de facto standard used for centuries.

Would I recommend the book? If you haven't been taught any memory techniques or ordinal sets, or studied these on your own, then yes! Certainly! The books is fresh and modern and has great ideas for tricks you can use (assuming you're willing to go at this as a paid-for course and set aside time each week to concentrate on it).

If you now other de facto standards, examples of which I've given above, then my recommendation is "maybe." I enjoyed it and learned a good number of tricks. But I stumbled a great deal in many sections, so much so that I found myself arguing with Dominic in my mind rather than concentrating on what I was reading. It took a great deal of effort to get to the end. Worth my time, but maddening all the same.

4.0 von 5 Sternen A Pretty Good Book on Mnemonics Especially for Beginners! 29. September 2013
Von Nick B. - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
A mnemonics book by a world memory champion Dominic O' Brien. He explains his specific techniques for a variety of subjects.

What I like most about his book is he breaks it in related sections based on the skill set of the individual reading. Someone who has no experience can begin learning the basics and continue through to cover much more advanced techniques in later sections.

I would recommend this book to anyone with slight to a serious interest in mnemonics.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Help by associaion 11. September 2009
Von Frank N. Wright Jr. - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
If you learn as I do (by "association") this book is a great help in
learning rote memory assignments, like lists of things or people.
The systems the author explains are easy to use. Not everyone has
a photographic memory, this little book offers first rate solutions
for the rest of us.

5.0 von 5 Sternen How to Develop a Brilliant Memory Week by Week: 52 Proven Ways to Enhance Your Memory 15. September 2012
Von Christopher Browne - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
I have read the book over and over again and found it to be the best foundation for memory that I have come across. I always thought Harry Lorayne was the best thing since sliced bread but this takes me to the next stage of memory training. Don't close your mind to the methods in this book, they really work. so, give it a try. As they say you learn something on a daily basis.Therefore, you have 365 days to do so.
