Last year I came across the book “Unlimited Memory: How to Use Advanced Learning Strategies to Learn Faster, Remember More and be More Productive” by Kevin Horsley.
I like the quote in the book,
The mind is the limit. As long as the mind can envision the fact that you can do something, you can do it – as long as you believe 100 percent.Arnold Schwarzenegger
and the reviews from Amazon.
If you allow this book to change the way you learn, then this book is easily worth 20x the cover price for the keys and tools Horsley provides you with because you’ll finally be able to overcome that old adage that claims that we only use about 10% of our brains.
Like most of us, I’ve always just accepted the limitations that seem inherent with owning a brain, and I’ve become satisfied that I’ll never be able to use more than “10%” as if it is not even realistic to tap into significantly more than that. However, this book invites you to throw away those limitations and strive for more. And Horsley’s methods are not difficult to put into practice. They only require commitment, practice, and review. He compares it to taking your mind to the gym for a regular workout.
Some of the strategies that he teaches near the beginning of the book may sound familiar to you, but read on. All the way through to the end. Have fun with the book. Practice what he is teaching you at each and every step along the way. You’ll find some of the methods more useful to you than others, but you will find all of them legitimately helpful. Use any information that you want to learn as your training material, and you will see for yourself that these methods work. I’m not even going to give you any examples in this review because you really need to experience it for yourself.
I will say this… usually, after I read a book, I never read it again. Not so with this one. This book is worth my reading every week because I want to practice, learn, and remember all of these methods. Horsley says, “Your mind is the only computer in the world with this characteristic: the more you put into it, the more it holds.” His methods illustrate this truth very clearly.
I only wish I could have discovered this book when I was in high school or college. The great thing about learning though is that you always have opportunities to learn more, and all of us could use these methods to be more successful in any area of our lives, personal or professional. This book is going to open up an unlimited world to you, if you are willing to make some changes in the way you think.Kev, reviewed in the United States on December 16, 2017
I am a strong beliver in Law of Attraction and I like the genuine review from Kev, so I decided to buy the book and give it a try.
The book says the most important key and first step to unlimited memory is to be able to concentrate.
How easy that sounds!
But one of the most difficult tasks in the world is to “concentrate”. According to the Laboratory of Neuro Imaging at the University of Southern California, an average person has 70,000 thoughts per day, meaning that we have a new thought every one or two seconds. Controlling the thoughts is not easy, but it can be beneficial. That’s why we do meditations or yoga. We are trying to focus and concentrate.
Not to mention the non-stop “mommy, mommy, mommy” from my baby boy while I am writing this review and trying to think.
After “concentration”, the book takes you to the tactics of memorizing – “create and connect”. Mostly it talks about how to use the common techniques we have already learnt in high school, only in a more inspiring way. For instance, you can use your daily routine as a way to store and connect information. Revisiting will help you enhance memory. All of these take efforts.
I don’t see my memory has a fundamental improvement after reading the book, but that could be due to my lack of concentration in the first place. Today when I write this blog I started to feel skeptical about Amazon reviews and if the Amazon reviewer Kev I quoted above could be the author Kevin. I don’t see the book as that powerful.
It is still a book worth reading. After all, it taught me the importance of “concentration” and many people find it quite helpful.
