In the days of Plato and Aristotle, these systems were part of formal education, and for thousands of years their instruction has been passed down via written word, requiring the reader to translate those words into images. Recognizing that written letters are natural to none, The Memory Arts bypasses the unnatural for the natural, providing beautifully painted locations designed specifically for memory storage and retrieval. The Memory Arts provides a methodology so refined even a 6-year-old can learn how to memorize a shuffled deck of cards, a list of over 25 items that can be called back in any order, and countless phone numbers. The principles taught in this book are directly applicable to every area of life, be it business, math, history, public speaking, and more (even grocery shopping)!

I have to say, I have conflicted feelings about telling people how great this book is-because there's a pretty big part of me that wants to keep this stuff secret, so people will be impressed and buy me drinks for memorizing cards without a clue as to how easy it is. I want everyone and their kids to read this.

Simon Aronson - Magician and Memorized Deck Expert
'The Memory Arts' book is the easiest and fastest way to learn [a deck of playing cards]! Flash cards, songs, and rote memory weren't sticking. In one day I read this book and learned the whole stack. Makes me feel foolish wasting all that time trying to learn it any other way.
