My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Great read regarding how memory works and how to keep it working well.
I just finished reading “Brain Brilliance: Unlock the True Untapped Potential of Your Brain” book by Walter E. Samuelson this past week. The reason I picked this book up was because I was searching for a good read on memory retention and from the description and overview it seemed like it was worth a look.
I have the ability to handle many different tasks of differing skill requirements simultaneously (the true meaning of the word “multi-tasking”) but what I have been finding as I have gotten older (basically once I hit 40 and over the past six years to date) is remembering things has become harder and harder for me to do. It seemed that no matter how many times I repeated a date or something that I needed to remember I would still forget it. If I set my keys down in an unusual place in the house (rather than their default location) I wouldn’t be able to find them.
The book is a relatively short read at about 50 pages but it reviews information in topical segments like how memory works, how sleep and diet affect both long and short term memory, and it also give insight on lifestyle choices that can help you improve your memory.
Now that I’m done with the reading material from the book I am looking forward to putting some of the content to use.
The book is packed with good information and it will be something I refer back to time and again in reference manner as I put the practices to use.
