Suggested reading

  1. 1. Suggested Reading The Following is a partial list of books that could help further your pursuit of memory excellence and sharpen your mind considerably: Derren Brown, Tricks of the Mind (Channel 4 Books, 2006) Naturally, this course is based on principles shared by Brown in his book. You’ll also learn the hows and wherefores of hypnosis, magic, ouija boards, phony psychic abilities and reading people really well. All through the eyes of a charlatan and a skeptic. Joshua Foer, Moonwalking with Einstein: The Art and Science of Remembering Everything (Penguin Books, 2011) This book is a bit of exciting scientific journalism and tells the
  2. 2. Suggested Reading story of an ordinary journalist with an unimpressive memory’s journey to understanding the nature of memory and become a formidable mental athlete. It also looks at the research past and present into how our minds work. Harry Lorrayne, How to Develop a Super Power Memory (Frederick Fell, 1996) D.B. himself suggest this book and I second the notion. Unlike the other two books this is what you need if you are serious about training your mind, thoroughly exploring tools and concepts and providing your brain with a good amount of exercise. A classic in the genre. Mortimer J. Adler and Charles Van Doren, How to Read A Book (Touchstone, 1972)
  3. 3. Suggested Reading Ok, so you’ve trained your mind. But why? I’ll be perfectly honest. If you aren’t at least cozily acquainted with the concepts in Adler’s famous tome, then you cannot really call yourself educated, no matter how many years you spent in college. This book teaches you how to read like a mature adult and never have to fear a book or text book as being “too difficult.” It’s not a book on memory, but it is a book I think every college student should be familiar with and have read and reread a dozen times. Well, that’s it, I guess. Good luck!
