Taken from the Amazon bestselling book, Your Memory : How It Works and How to Improve It by Kenneth Higbee, Ph.D.

Every single one of us struggles with our memory every single day.  It’s not just aging boomers who are afflicted by the ever increasing incidence of memory failure.  Every woman over the age of at least 50 has experienced issues with memory failure.  Anyone suffering from physical and chronic ailments knows what it’s like when suddenly, you just don’t remember what you said 1 minute ago.  As someone who falls into all of these categories, improving memory is one of my highest goals of healthy aging.

The author Kenneth Higbee, Ph.D., hailing from Provo Utah, is a professor of psychology at Brigham Young University where, among other subjects, he teaches courses he developed on memory improvement.  Out of 53 votes at Amazon, this book gets 39-5 star ratings which for me is a very highly recommended read.  Although not a new book by any means having a 2nd edition date of 2001, techniques for improving memory have not experienced much of a change over the years and this book is considered the “text” book for learning about what memory truly is and the techniques for improving the way it works.

Nobody grows old merely by living a number of years. We grow old by deserting our ideals. Years may wrinkle the skin, but to give up enthusiasm wrinkles the soul. ~Samuel Ullman
