Our brain is a muscle. Like our bodies, it needs exercise. In the last few hundred years, we have stopped training our memories and we have lost the ability to memorise large amounts of information.

Memory Craft introduces the best memory techniques humans have ever devised, from ancient times and the Middle Ages, to methods used by today's memory athletes. Lynne Kelly has tested all these methods in experiments which demonstrate the extraordinary capacity of our brains at any age.

For anyone who needs to memorise a speech or a play script, learn anatomy or a foreign language, or prepare for an exam, Memory Craft is a fabulous toolkit. It offers proven techniques for teachers to help their students learn more effectively. There are also simple strategies for anyone who has trouble remembering names or dates, and for older people who want to keep their minds agile. Above all, memorising things can be playful, creative and great fun.

'Weaving the deep history of memory techniques along with the techniques themselves, Memory Craft is a memory book like no other I've ever read.' - Nelson Dellis, four times USA Memory Champion 'With her infectious enthusiasm and depth of personal experience, Dr Lynne Kelly teaches us how we too can memorise anything...

[and] potentially protect our memories from decline as we age.' - Dr Meredith McKague, University of Melbourne
