Memory gets worse with age – right? A fact of life. But what if we told you that wasn’t necessarily true? That memory decline isn’t inevitable.

In this livestream event, renowned neurologist and New York Times bestselling author Dr Richard Restak will distil the wisdom of an entire career into a one-stop guide to the science of memory. Drawing on cutting-edge neuroscience, case studies, famous anecdotes and more, he offers tips and tricks for anyone who wants to strengthen their memory, protect themselves from diseases like Alzheimer’s and think smarter.

Learn how to boost your memory through techniques like:

– Mind mapping and making lists

-Reading more novels than non-fiction

-‘Chunking’ several pieces of information together to make them easier to remember

-Choosing manual methods over technological solutions like phones and GPS

Packed full of information for anyone curious about the power of their memory, this is the only guide you need to train your memory and make it stronger.

Praise for Dr Richard Restak’s The Complete Guide to Memory:

‘Our memory defines both who we are and who we think we are. Memory makes us human and explains why one of our greatest fears is the cruel loss of memory associated with dementia and Alzheimer’s disease. In this wonderfully lucid and erudite book Richard Restak explains the varied nature of memory, how we can enhance our memory, why memory fails, and the action of aids, that may or may not, enhance our memory. I recommend this book as an essential read for anybody interested in knowing what it is to be human.’ – Russell Foster, Professor of Circadian Neuroscience, University of Oxford and Sunday Times bestselling author of Life Time
