Helmut Sachsabout this book: "Remember Everything You Want and Manage the Rest" is a truly complete practical guide for anyone who really wants to master information, rather than just learn and forget. To this end, we merge memory and learning improvement techniques with personal knowledge management and modern computer software.
If you are a student, professional, or life-long learner who wants to stay on top of information, then this book is for you!
Most memory books teach memorization techniques. Some of them teach them really well. But – they don't tell you the other fifty percent you have to know to really keep the information. They don't tell you how to manage what you have learned. Unfortunately, after a very short time you will have forgotten most of what you have memorized. This is just how our brain works. To learn something for the long run, you have to use it.
This book is different: Yes, we cover the most effective memory improvement techniques, including mnemonics. But we don't stop there! We don't leave you alone on the other half of the journey: Practicing Recall using smart techniques and innovative computer software.
…and Manage the Rest: Most of the information you encounter doesn't really have to be learned. Instead, it has to be managed. A lot of it may be important now, but will be outdated and replaced by other information in one or two years. To make the most of our modern world, you have to distill the important information and organize it, so that you can re-find and use it while it is relevant. This book introduces methods and smart, mostly-free software tools to extract and organize the important information from the Internet, books, e-books, etc. We also cover effective note taking, including mind mapping and outlining, and include plenty of easy-follow examples.
Read "Remember Everything You Want and Manage the Rest" to really excel in this knowledge intensive world and have fun learning.
