Hi, My name is Lee, and I’m new here. I started my journey into mnemonics shortly after listening to “Moonwalking with Einstein” by Josh Foer.

My current best memory feat is memorizing 49 digits of pie (during commercial breaks of a movie), and memorizing a few chapters of a really technical Statistics book written for data scientists.

I am a senior developer, so I hope to use mnemonics mainly to memorize vast sets of technical documentation and books. It’s been less than a month, and I haven’t even finished my 2-digit Major System, so I’m hoping to grow tremendously.

Welcome to the site! :slight_smile:

What statistics book are you reading?

Practical Statistics for Data Science, by Peter and Andrew Bruce

Nice, I’ve flipped through that book at the bookstore but haven’t read it. It looked interesting.

It’s really helpful as a catch-up book to somewhat-advanced statistics, especially as it applies to machine learning

I can’t remember how I came across his book but it seems to be the doorway into the realm of memory for a lot of people
