Improving Your Memory: How to Remember What You're Starting to Forget

This accessible handbook discusses how memory works, how it changes with age, and-most importantly-how it can be improved. The authors provide helpful tools for understanding and improving memory, including sixteen techniques and exercises. The book explains why people remember what they do, what kind of effort remembering requires, and various conditions that can affect anyone's memory-such as stress, illness, and depression. Completely updated and reorganized, the third edition is more useful to readers, most of whom will see immediate improvement in their memory after just one use.
