Drawing upon the extraordinary skills of eight-times World Memory Champion Dominic O'Brien, Learn to Remember provides a unique illustrated repertoire of proven and effective ways to enhance your memory. In this book you learn how to extend your memory power, as well as to use a wealth of shortcuts and techniques applicable to a wide range of tasks, from memorizing a speech, a shopping list or a set of city street directions to remembering names and faces. Learn to recall details at work and never miss that anniversary. When Dominic first trained himself to remember longer and longer sequences of random units, he found himself recalling forgotten experiences from childhood as his brain's powers became strengthened and refined. We all have the potential to sharpen and extend our memories to a degree that might seem incredible to anyone who was never tried it. Improving our memory is the key to a more fulfilled life. If we can master the arts of storage, retention and recall, our knowledge of the world improves, we can derive more from our reading, we learn to be more effective at work, and even our relationships become richer and more harmonious. With a master memorizer as your guide, you can open up rewarding inner realms of possibility you never even knew existed. Join Dominic O'Brien on what may turn out to be the most memorable journey of your life.

New York Times Bestseller “A myth-destroying book that will make you rethink both the theory and practice of leadership.” — Daniel H. Pink, author of Drive “If you truly want to become a Spark in your organization and in your life, I urge you to read this book now.” — Mike “Coach K” Krzyzewski, head coach, Duke University Men’s Basketball Leadership is not about job titles—it’s about action and behavior. “Sparks” are the doers, thinkers, innovators, and key influencers who are catalysts for personal and organizational change. But these extraordinary individuals aren’t defined by the place they hold on an organizational chart—they are defined by their actions, commitment, and will. Leadership experts Angie Morgan, Courtney Lynch, and Sean Lynch show how you can become a Spark by cultivating seven key leadership behaviors. Grounded in the latest research on leadership development, this fresh, accessible road map is packed with real-world stories from inside companies like Facebook, Google, and Boston Scientific, and from the authors’ own high-stakes, challenging experiences serving in the U.S. Armed Forces. With SPARK as a blueprint, anyone can become a catalyst for change, and any organization can identify and develop Sparks. “These authors are not only great leadership thinkers, but they have all led people in challenging circumstances—a huge advantage in guiding the rest of us. Trust them to take you to a new level.” — Brigadier General Thomas A. Kolditz, U.S. Army (Ret.), director of the Ann and John Doerr Institute for New Leaders at Rice University

Most of us have no idea what’s really going on inside our heads. Yet brain scientists have uncovered details every business leader, parent, and teacher should know—like the need for physical activity to get your brain working its best. How do we learn? What exactly do sleep and stress do to our brains? Why is multi-tasking a myth? Why is it so easy to forget—and so important to repeat new knowledge? Is it true that men and women have different brains? In Brain Rules, Dr. John Medina, a molecular biologist, shares his lifelong interest in how the brain sciences might influence the way we teach our children and the way we work. In each chapter, he describes a brain rule—what scientists know for sure about how our brains work—and then offers transformative ideas for our daily lives. Medina’s fascinating stories and infectious sense of humor breathe life into brain science. You’ll learn why Michael Jordan was no good at baseball. You’ll peer over a surgeon’s shoulder as he proves that most of us have a Jennifer Aniston neuron. You’ll meet a boy who has an amazing memory for music but can’t tie his own shoes. You will discover how: Every brain is wired differently Exercise improves cognition We are designed to never stop learning and exploring Memories are volatile Sleep is powerfully linked with the ability to learn Vision trumps all of the other senses Stress changes the way we learn In the end, you’ll understand how your brain really works—and how to get the most out of it.
