Here's a self help book that will find countless aspirants. Few people acknowledge to a bad memory generally, but nine out of ten will say, ""I never forget a face but I'm no good at names"". Robert Nutt has proved this a fault that can be cured, and that, furthermore, amazing feats of memory can be performed after a simple self-discipline. His book falls into two distinct parts, -- a system for improving the memory generally, and a specific method for improving the memory for names. I read the galleys with illusions that I could get the general idea and report it accordingly. I found myself stopping to learn his key numbers and key words and to check myself with the various tests he gave. And the system -- so far as I went -- works. It is a book for all ages.
