*I WAS PROVIDED A DIGITAL GALLEY FOR THE PURPOSES OF THIS TOUR. THIS DOES NOT AFFECT MY OPINION*
As someone who struggles to recall things that happened as short as ten minutes ago, this book was really exciting for me to read. I’m constantly reprimanded for not being able to remember simple things, such as whether or not I’d eaten a certain thing for breakfast or the last time I’d taken a shower. It gets hard because amongst the confusion of not remembering and also having to deal with the reprimands, I just want to do better and be able to achieve that memory.
Jacob Sager Weinstein crafted a fun, easy-to-read book about how to retain and work at improving your memory. He gives fun examples, activities, and even some stories that are–in my opinion–perfect for all, no matter the age. Barbara Malley made this book beautiful with her art, and it was the perfect compliment to Weinstein’s writing.
After reading this book, I definitely believe that my memory has improved a bit. Though, results don’t always show immediately and this is more of a skill that’ll take time to keep at and work on, I do really think that this book helped a lot. For that, I rate How to Remember Everything 4.75 stars.
