John Graham - memory tips

John Graham, a Salt Lake City resident, used to be terrible with names.

He’d learn names in a group setting and immediately forget them. He would avoid calling people by their first names because he couldn’t remember them.

That all changed for Graham about four years ago, when he read a book called “Moonwalking With Einstein” and began practicing memorization techniques. To say he’s come a long way since then is something of an understatement: Graham took first place in the 2018 USA Memory Championship in July of this year.
