Use your Perfect Memory

This book introduces you to your Perfect Memory. Many scientists believe that our memory is actually perfect. All you need is the correct trigger to trigger the recall of the information.

Use your Perfect Memory introduces you to memory systems that can be applied to anything from lists to remembering people's names and faces.

The techniques are based on principles that are hundreds, or even thousands of years old, but perfected and packaged for easy consumption.

With just a little effort you can dramatically improve your memory.

The book also introduces you to Tony Buzan's major system, which allows you to remember thousands of items.

Dreams, jokes, speeches, exams, names, places... All are covered in this amazing book.

The Speed Reading Book

Speed Reading may sound like an impossible dream.

How can you read faster and improve your comprehension at the same time? While this may sound like a paradox, Tony Buzan shows you how you can achieve this.

Firstly, by pointing out the mistakes you are probably making with your current method of reading and, secondly, showing you the methods and reading skills that will help you overcome those problems.

While Tony Buzan is more renowned for Mind Maps and Mind Mapping, his Speed Reading Book nicely complements your Mind Maps and Mind Mapping skills to maximise the use of your brain.

The current World Speed Reading Champion reads at over 3,000 words per minute!

You can learn the same techniques that the Speed Reading champions of the world use by purchasing The Speed Reading Book.
