Memory & Mnemonics

With the right system you can learn to memorize and remember long lists of names, phone numbers or any other set of data you need to recall quickly and remember for a long time. These mnemonic systems are not just wonderful to help you in your daily lives, but are great techniques to perform unbelievable mental feats. A mnemonic system is great if you want to memorize a card stack (see Stacks: Memorized & Algorithmic), or a prompter list. The name that has dominated this field over many years is Dominic O'Brien.

E. W. Scripture

Arithmetical Prodigies by E. W. ScriptureArithmetical Prodigies by E.W. Scripture is a remarkable paper about remarkable people. Published in 1891, it gives the first comprehensive account of those individuals who have displayed an astonishing capacity for mental calculation. The numerous and fascinating biographies alone make this work a 'must read' for anyone with a taste for the curious and sensational. The paper can also lay claim to being one of the first works of popular psychology. Its style - essentially that of a treatise that reads like a novel - has been replicated right through to the present day. In short, Scripture's...

Robert A. Nelson

Calvert's Magic Memory by Robert A. NelsonHere is famous stage magician John Calvert's own, easy to do, Magic Memory System for memorizing from 20 to 40 words or objects.

Presented as a stage or platform demonstration, you are able to memorize and recall the words as rapidly as called by the audience.

From 20 to 40 numbers are shown on a wipe-erase whiteboard (or blackboard). Each spectator designates a number and a word. Note that the objects need not be called in sequence. When the board is filled, the performer - with the board out of his sight - repeats the words forwards and backwards. The mental marvel is also able to recall the word...

Scott Cram

Day One by Scott CramThe classic "Day For Any Date" feat has been updated!

Day One is a new approach to appearing as a human calendar. You ask for the year and month of the spectator's birthday, and instantly create that month's calendar for them on the back of your business card.

Day One is designed to be simple to learn, as well as quick and impressive to perform.

The role of math and mnemonics has been greatly simplified and minimized, and you don't need any previous experience with other mnemonic systems. Entire centuries are covered with less than a third of the mnemonics required by other approaches....

Robert H. Nutt

How To Remember Names and Faces: How to Develop a Good Memory by Robert H. NuttThis classic work on memory, first published in 1943, is really two books in one!

The first part, The Mental Filing System, will teach you how to keep up to 100 things straight in your memory. This is taught in a clear, easy-to-understand manner, using many real-world examples of both the benefits of using the system, as well as the dangers of an untrained memory.

The author taught many of his memory courses in person, and this provides both value and a good knowledge of the questions you're likely to have.

The second part, How To Remember Names and Faces, deals in detail with the problem...

Hypno-Dream and The Power Within Programs by Charles GauciThe Hypno-Dream Program

For over fifty-eight years Charles Gauci has applied the principles contained in this program to help him achieve tremendous world wide success both as a hypnotist and a mentalist. He explains:

  • Why Positive Thinking fails 95% of the time when applied.
  • The Law of Reversed Effort. Why the harder we try the less we succeed.
  • Why, when the Will Power and the Belief System are in conflict the Belief System always wins.

Devin Knight

I've Got Your Number by Devin Knight
"This is another powerful idea from Devin. Now, it is unusual and not something you would be doing in a show. But, if you want to make an impact with a client, or future client, then this is something you can learn and put in your personal arsenal. I'm sure many workers will want to add it into their memory banks of things they can use to look like memory experts." - Greg Arce

"As a veteran performer of over 17 years as the house mentalist at Magic Island in Houston, TX, I had been using the old Paul Linder version sparingly because of the possibility of repeating the same number for two...

Chris Wasshuber

Knight's Tour: With Free Choice of Start and End by Chris Wasshuber
"I will sum up your Knight's Tour routine as follows, IT IS BRILLIANT!" - David Burmeister
In the late 1980s I developed a method for the Knight's Tour which allows a spectator a truly free choice for the starting square and ending square of opposite color (same color start and end is mathematically impossible).

This manuscript describes in detail this method. The method attempts to minimize memorization and teaches you a system to derive a proper complete tour on the spot. The method is so flexible that you can find several different tours for one pair of start and end points. Of course,...

Mind Explosions by Bob CassidyMind Explosions is about closers, the routines which will leave your audience laughing, crying, awestruck, applauding, or sleeping.

George Parker Bidder

On Mental Calculation by George Parker BidderGeorge Parker Bidder is one of history's greatest mental calculators. In the early 19th century he toured Britain as a 'calculating boy'. The amazing demonstrations he gave caught the attention of eminent scholars who offered to fund his education. Bidder went on to become one of the leading engineers of his time. His position as vice president of the Institution of Civil Engineers afforded him the opportunity to speak openly about his views on mental calculation in a lecture to fellow members of the institution. That lecture, given in 1856, is the subject of this document. In it, Bidder describes...
