These two books fall into the memory-improvement category. Gediman, an adult learning specialist, and Crinella, a specialist on brain plasticity at the University of California, Irvine, dispute the premise that mental decline and senility are inevitable. On the contrary, they believe that readers can maintain vitality "from the neck up" in the same way that they would work toward physical fitness and dietary health. Provided is a fitness plan, complete with a variety of exercises, whereby readers spend ten minutes a day "working out" their memories. The book's layout, diagrams, and quizzes will maintain interest and enthusiasm for completing the specified tasks. Memory Power, on the other hand, is a bit more cerebral. Hagwood, the current and four-time National Memory Champion, developed a system whereby people can develop a picture-perfect memory, enhance mental functioning, learn more efficiently, and even remember where they put their car keys. Hagwood's tips include keeping a "memory diary" at the end of the day, practicing association and repetition methods, and imagining a room in which to deposit and later retrieve information. Although the author's program and techniques will prove useful, there is a lot of text to navigate. Still, diligent readers will see the book through. Note that Hagwood is scheduled to appear on The Early Show, which could spur demand. Recommended. Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
