Kevin Horsley broke a world memory record in 2013, memorizing the first 10,000 digits of pi. Ten thousand! Here, in this Wall Street Journal bestseller, he explains his strategies to concentrate better, learn faster, and improve your memory.
Memory champion Kevin Horsley struggled with dyslexia as a child and barely graduated from high school. Things changes quickly for him after he heard about accelerated learning and memory techniques — and began to work intensively on mastering his memory.
The hard work paid off. He took fifth place in the World Memory Championships in 1995 and was awarded the title of Grand Master of Memory, an honor presented to him in England by Prince Philip and the World Memory Sports Council.
Among his most astounding feats since then, he memorized the first 10,000 digits of pi, breaking the previous record. He did that, in part, simply to prove he could — and to demonstrate the amazing capacity of human memory.
For the past 20 years, he’s been helping others improve their memory, in person and with popular books like this one, which was a Wall Street Journal bestseller.
