In Epic Mahabharata, even Hanuman was not aware of his own power.Jambwant helped him to realise it.
Same situation happens with every human somewhere,somehow where he need a coach,a friend,relative or someone who can help him to unleash his own our real power.

Same happens with Joshua,when he had been to US memory championship for his work(reporting).Initially he thought that the participants were one of the few gems or lucky ones who had some different power or powerful brain but his perception was changed when he himself started learning those techniques after being offered by Master like Buzon & others.He learned the techniques & he came to same place next year & he won.He also became the part of the elite memory champions club.

This is not only a book of his success but also an example of the great Human Power.The power which is there within us,which just need a push and right guidance to nurture.

he showed us that a common man also can change his life by proper dedication & passion.Nothing is impossible.

I was so inspired by the book that after reading this book i dropped an email to Joshua asking where to start.I found him very generous.He replied me with few link from where i can start learning those techniques.

Imported edition of the same book :

Self Help Book...!!!

You want to enhance your memorization capabilities....and you are a vivid reader then this is for you. Moonwalking With Einstein is a book that describes the author???s journey as he prepared to participate in the US Memory Championship, and the discoveries he made on the way.

Memory is a faculty that humans make use of every minute of the day without even thinking about it. Every activity involves recalling something. When a person speaks or writes, they are recalling their repository of word and grammar rules and semantics and structure, even simple calculations involve the use of memor...

You want to enhance your memorization capabilities....and you are a vivid reader then this is for you. Moonwalking With Einstein is a book that describes the author???s journey as he prepared to participate in the US Memory Championship, and the discoveries he made on the way.

Memory is a faculty that humans make use of every minute of the day without even thinking about it. Every activity involves recalling something. When a person speaks or writes, they are recalling their repository of word and grammar rules and semantics and structure, even simple calculations involve the use of memory to think of numbers and arithmetic rules.

The author of Moonwalking With Einstein is a science journalist who was assigned to cover the 2005 US Memory Championship. He was intrigued not just by the competition but also by the competitors themselves, who were a mixed bunch, mostly just ordinary people with no special gifts. They just worked hard to improve their memory.

Stumbled upon the techniques

This is not a book, where one can find some memory techniques to use in real world, rather this is a book, which provides an overview of all ( mostly, I think ) memory techniques available in this world. Author done a good job, reviewing the history of memory. Each and every page contains an interesting fact that will keep us, move on till to the end.

Joshua Foer. We need to appreciate him for his dedication and his journey from memory event news writer to memory event champ, which he achieved in a year of time. His writing style in this book, produces a visual story telling feel to the re...

An inspiring, interesting work

In a fine example of embedded journalisn, Joshua Foer seamlessly combines the science and art of memory with the memoirs of his adventures as a mental athlete competing in the US Memory Championship (the climax is engaging), and drops a number of useful memory techniques and tips for you to pick up.

The basic idea is that it's all there in the mind space; you only have to first arrange it properly and then learn to place suitable hooks for smooth retrieval. The techniques, such as the memory palace, are easy to follow and will stand you in good stead in everyday adventures as well in exams...

A facile read; value for money. Strongly recommended!
(And one more thing ... the Flipkart experience was superb from pricing and ordering to delivery to paper and cover quality.

inspiring

yes we do get to know about how to sharpen our memory but more than thet you get the lesson that one can achieve anything if he wants...its the journey of a jounalist from a having a normal memory like us to winning a memory championship. this book is about the methods he learnt during this journey. memorising is not considered good....i mean relative to understanding the data u have to learn but by the end of this book ur view will change.
