This is absolutely not a self-help book on how to improve your memory, but it's a fun and compelling read, with some very thought-provoking ideas. The descriptions of the various events, the people involved, and the author's own journey is very compelling. Apart from that, some of the ideas introduced in the book, looking at the role and meaning of education in relation to memory for example, were really interesting to me. They were not probed particularly deeply in the book, but it is something I definitively want to look further into, and this was a great start. The demonstration of how the techniques work are great, but some of the examples are bit overly detailed.
