I’m a new user to this forum and really have no idea what I’m doing when it comes to memorizing things but want to get into this and don’t want to limit myself.
One of my magician friends was cleaning out some of their stuff and gave me Harry Lorayne’s How to Develop Super Power Memory. This book seems to have methods on memorizing everything I would need to memorize to become successful in this field. However, I want to know if learning the methods in this book would limit me later. As a magician most interested in speed cards, I wouldn’t want to put in hours learning Lorayne’s peg system for memorizing cards just to find out that I can’t get fast with it.
So I ask, are Harry Lorayne’s methods outdated? Can I become competitively fast with the methods in this book? If yes, how fast? If not, is this book still worth reading?
I searched everywhere and although Lorayne was mentioned a few times, I haven’t seen these questions answered. I moderate another forum and know duplicate topics are very annoying, so if I overlooked something, please point me in that direction. Thank you!
