Practical Memory: A Simple Guide to Help You Remember More & Forget Less in Your Everyday Life

by I. C. Robledo

Simple, Practical, “Common Sense” Tips to Remember More & Forget Less

You are here because your memory is not as good as you would like. Why might this be?

Well, the internet has all the facts we need at our fingertips. Then cameras store our pictures, and smartphones contain the phone numbers of everyone we know. With so much information being recorded for us, the brain has little that it actually needs to remember. This may be good for productivity, but is bad for our memories.

The problem is when we apply our memories less and less, our ability to remember can also get worse and worseâ?¦.

The solution here is simple. We must practice and exercise our memories. Thankfully, in Practical Memory you will discover simple systems and exercises anyone can use to improve their memory.

This way, you can see progress immediately, without needing to spend precious time learning difficult techniques (as with many other memory books).

Internationally bestselling author I. C. Robledo has examined “ordinary” people with powerful memories. Studying such people is useful because they tend to use simple, practical “common sense” systems that we could all benefit from. Now, those tips are all compiled here into one convenient resource.

Inside, you will discover:

  • How to recall even the most difficult memories (e.g., on the tip of your tongue)
  • Why intending or planning to remember is a key step to building memories
  • How to stop forgetting your purse/wallet, phone, camera, etc.
  • Why too much routine can be bad for your ability to remember
  • How to remember where you parked the car
  • Special tips for how to remember new locations when traveling (and stop getting lost)

Start building a more powerful memory today with Practical Memory.

The Magic Flyswatter: A Superhero Tale of Africa, Retold from the Mwindo Epic (Ancient Fantasy)

by Aaron Shepard

The storyteller stands beside the fire, swaying, dancing, miming, singing, reciting. With one hand he shakes a gourd rattle, with the other he swings a conga — a flyswatter made with a buffalo tail on a wooden handle. Anklet bells tinkle as he moves. Three young men beat a wooden drum with sticks.  Listening to him is a crowd of men, women, and children. They sing along at a song’s refrain, they repeat whole lines of the story when he pauses to see if they’re paying attention. They encourage him with little shouts, whoops, claps. Food and drink are passed around.  In a mountain rainforest of the Congo, a Nyanga village hears once more the tale of its favorite hero — Mwindo, the one born walking, the one born talking . . . .  For ages 10 and up. Not illustrated! ///////////////////////////////////////////////// Aaron Shepard is the award-winning author of “The Baker’s Dozen,” “The Sea King’s Daughter,” “Lady White Snake,” and many more children’s books. His stories have appeared often in Cricket magazine, while his Web site is known internationally as a prime resource for folktales, storytelling, and reader’s theater. Once a professional storyteller, Aaron specializes in lively retellings of folktales and other traditional literature, which have won him honors from the American Library Association, the New York Public Library, the Bank Street College of Education, the National Council for the Social Studies, and the American Folklore Society. Cover artist Xiaojun Li, a native of Inner Mongolia, was an award-winning children’s book illustrator and art director in China before moving to the United States. ///////////////////////////////////////////////// SAMPLE She-Mwindo heard the noise. He went to the house of his favorite wife. He saw the boy and was full of rage. “What is this? Did I not say ‘no sons’? Did I not say I would kill him?” He threw his spear at the baby. Mwindo waved his conga. The spear fell short and stuck in the floor. Mwindo pulled it up. He broke it in two. She-Mwindo cried out. “Aieeeeeee! What kind of child is this?” Mwindo sang and danced and waved his conga.    I am Mwindo,   the one born walking,   the one born talking.   O my father, you do not want me.   O my father, you try to kill me.   But what can you do against me? 

Bigfoot/Sasquatch Resurgence of Native American Indian Legends

by Leon Pfaller

You know how anyone today can just say- “Oh, I saw Bigfoot,” or “I just saw Sasquatch?” But are these people lying, or are they telling the truth about what they claim to have encountered? Let us examine the far less explored idea- in (finally) re-evaluating centuries old Native American Indian legends. Being that, if there was- any truth- to such a creature- the Native American Indians might have stories of it as well?
Hopeful, but doubtful, in his quest for answers- Leon Pfaller reveals that not only do 90% of North America’s Native American Indians have stories that- verify- the true existence of this giant. They also have many different names from tribe-to-tribe for the same described being. As well as a variety of stories of this giant’s behavior (everything from stealing fish to human-abduction) all to- reveal- the same described thing- people still claim to have encounters with- in our woods of North America- Bigfoot/Sasquatch!
This is in a non-fiction book which is cited and sourced from hundreds of literary examples. From the Great explorer Samuel De Champlain’s diary from 1603 (of stories told among eastern tribes), to Jose Mariano Mociño’s book from 1792 (of an account given by a tribe from among the shores of the BC coast). To Eskimo accounts gathered in Alaska from early 1800’s Russian explorers. To stories gathered from Southern California’s Mission Indians by Spanish Priests in the late 1700s. As well as stories told among Daniel Boone, “Buffalo” Bill Cody, various Reverends, ministers, missionaries, Generals, and even a U.S. President? Yes (Theodore Roosevelt)! All inside this book! Cited and sourced from various books on the subject- to various University texts (having nothing to do with the subject of “Bigfoot” or “Sasquatch”) that- reveal- the same described creature- by different names- from various original (uncontaminated) Native American Indian, and explorer, accounts. All in a chart-like format- to separate the litany of various examples from among different tribes.
Can over one-hundred tribes, and hundreds of literary sources (throughout history) that all point- in the same direction- towards the same described thing- All be wrong? It leads one not to argue, but to- agree- with what appears to be a major discovery which has been taking place (all along), and has actually been recorded (documented), among a roll-call of historic figures. Even before the inception of our Great Country. Relive the adventure over-and-over again in- Bigfoot/Sasquatch Resurgence of Native American Indian Legends.
