Never Forget Again

Master Your Imagination and Develop a Legendary Memory (2013)

It’s natural to struggle with memorizing facts and figures. It’s natural to rely on digital tools for reminders, appointments, and notes. It’s natural to accept the boundaries of your memory.

Never Forget Again teaches you an entirely new way to learn and remember that will leverage your most intimate and natural faculty: your imagination.

You’ll learn to shed your reliance on digital assistance and effortlessly remember practical information like numbers, lists, faces, presentations, quotes, anniversaries, appointments, challenging names, and much more. More importantly, you’ll change the way you think on a fundamental level.

Your memory lies at the core of everything you do; developing it will impact your life unlike any other skill.
