Also would recommend books by Harry Lorayne (The Memory Book is the most well known). I've not yet read Moonwalking with Einstein to see how it compares, but it likely has the same techniques (loci/memory palace, different mnemonics, peg lists, etc).


Personally, though, beyond using mnemonics for numbers, I never did master the techniques. I think it's a lot easier if you start at around age 10. By the time you're in your 20's you have a lot of habits around memorizing that you have to unlearn.
