I first heard of mnemonics from a teacher at a computer school back in 97 because he went to a seminar by Trudeau (Mega Memory - Kevin Trudeau Mega Memory book link here
Then I just happen to read Andres Ericsson’s book “Peak” where he talked about how helped Joshua Foer with his journey to master memory. I forgot how Foer and Ericcsson connected with each other but Foer because part of a lab experiment for Ericcson. Of cours Ericsson mentions “Moonwalking with Einstein” so of course I head to read the book…which is how I ended up here.
I want to master the techniques used in Moonwalking with Einstein and what is on this forum. I plan to spend A LOT of time on this forum, going back to its beginning threads to learn as much as I can so that I can start my son towards the journey of mastering memory techniques for his school work (hes only 2 now but I plan on training him as early as possible).
I have Netflix so I plan on watching that “Memory Games” documentary.
I already am 1/3 through the book by Higbee - " Your Memory: How It Works and How to Improve It". book
Any other books suggestions or how to raise a child to have the tools in this forum in his tool box?
I hate how the american way of teaching and preparing children to be successful in life depends on how much information they can stuff into their brains and not other stuff like soft skills and working with others and how to think on their own, but unfortunately that is how it is and I will warn him how he needs to be prepared to memorize countless thinks in order to get good grades and be accepted into a good college.
