KIRKUS REVIEW

Two from the $64,000 Question program present their methods of improving memory efficiency and hold out the promise of the many benefits from so doing. Through the findings of laboratory and psychological tests they organize the need for motivation in memory, the necessity to master moods and complete tasks, the many types of mnemonic devices; they tell the value of having goals for your remembering, of rewards, spaced techniques and a knowledge of the whole of the problem to be mastered; they advise reading, recitation and writing to strengthen the memory and underscore the importance of ""overlearning"" for retention; they show why and how the unimportant should be forgotten. Memory training and how it can help children, assist in speechmaking, discussions and conferences and reading -- and the tricks to these -- are the finish of the book, with a ""memory meter"" scale in use throughout. Good names for what should be a waiting market.
