7 of 7 people found the following review helpful By Harold McFarland on March 31 2002
Format: Paperback
The focus of this book is not on memory techniques such as the LOCI method and while it does mention them and explain them briefly it does not give a lot of detail about them.
Instead it focuses on memory problems as a normal part of aging, medications and diet. Through out the book it mentions Alzheimers and similar concerns and repeatedly speaks about not being concerned about particular memory lapses as you grow older.
It does have thorough coverage of memory myths and how some of these myths create or contribute memory problems as well as the best coverage of diet, medicine, supplements and similar factors of any of the memory books that I have read.
This is a workbook with many excercises to prove their points as well as show how various techniques work and how storing and retrieving memories works in the mind.
If I were asked who I would recommend this book to then it would have to be people in one of two groups. First would be anyone who is aging and thinks that they are having memory lapses more often and are concerned about them. Second would be those who want to know what drugs, nutritional supplements and dietary factors may increase or harm their mental capacities.

Format: Paperback
I'm writing this review because I really liked a lot of aspects of the book. I recommended it to my friends, so I figured I'll recommend it to internet users as well. I've read some other books on memory improvement, but I think this book was more engaging. It includes most of the principles found in the other memory books I've read, but this book seemed to make it more cohesive. I think the other aspect I enjoyed was the emphasis on personal attitudes. It honestly left me with a new perspective on growing old. Also I felt the book spoke well to some of the sometimes-negative feelings I've had about growing old (to be honest I was surprised by just how many negative perceptions I had that this book revealed to me - and corrected, so to speak). Actually, the more I think about it, the more I can say I really liked the book and do highly recommend it. Enjoy

Format: Paperback
Douglas J. Mason, Psy. D., a neuropsychologist and gerontologist, has spoken about this memory program on ABC World News Now, NPR, and other radio and television programs. The Memory Workbook provides a comprehensive program designed to help rewire the mental habits that interfere with memory functioning. It offers multiple fun techniques that will challenge your assumptions, get you in touch with your senses and memory experiences, identify and use your natural strengths, help you focus on what is important. The authors include the latest scientific findings, neurological assessments, information about medications, memory disorders, and resources for additional help. The book is written with a sense of humor and it entertains as it teaches.

I really appreciate this book. I have noticed many changes in my memory in the last two years. The workbook has been very helpful in providing answers to my questions on how memory functions and ways to adjust and focus my attention in ways that make it fun! In addition, the exercises have been extremely beneficial in developing techniques for me to improve my memory. I strongly recommend this book to anyone who is interested in maintaining and improving their memory.

Format: Paperback
This book is a great self help tool not only in the area of memory - but in using the power of positive thinking.
Right from the start the exercises give you power to enhance your memory by teaching techniques to pay attention, to associate and to accept your own abilities.
For anyone who has a tendancy to forget, you can learn your strengths, boost your weaknesses and even smile at them. If you fear Aging, Alzheimers, Dimentia or Senility - there is an explanation that is understandable. Medication, Depression and other factors that can alter one's memory are also described.
I would recommend this book to anyone who suffers from or knows someone else who has concerns regarding his or her memory.

I bought the Memory Workbook and began sifting through it casually. After awhile I found myself more and more engrosed. I have noticed a significant improvement in my memory and my confidence. I've recommended it to friends and family!

Format: Paperback
The Memory Workbook is a must for anyone over the age of 40. It explains in a way that anyone can understand how memory works and what to expect as you age. It helped me to feel better about myself and my memory and helped me to realize that occasional forgetfulness is ok. It also help me to realize that a particular medication that I was on was actually affecting my memory. So I conslulted my doctor and my memory has greatly improved. I really recommend this book!
