Frazzled students and harried workers will value this advice from a self-described "totally lazy" teen, who became motivated to train and develop her memory skills in order to have more free time away from school. Contending that a keen memory is not only essential for students and an asset in test-taking but also a major factor in confidence and self-esteem, the book''s breezy tone and simple exercises invite anyone who feels anxious about memorization to relax and practice with the included activity charts and simple memory tests. The author''s struggle to rise above her "below average" academic performance as a child to become a teen prot�9g�9, excellent student, and world champion in memory performance will offer inspiration to anyone who worries about memory lapses or the stress of trying to remember important details under pressure.

Review:
"A collection of the most important memory techniques, simply presented by a young memory virtuoso." -- GEO, the leading German geosciences magazine

"Witty and easy to understand training for all who want to push their little grey cells." -- Cash, German money and finance magazine
About the Author:
Eighteen year old Christiane Stenger has been world youth champion in memory training three times. She says she is proof "you don't have to be a genius to memorize a hundred digit number - you can train your brain!"

Christiane is, by her own admission, "totally lazy". As a child, she regularly received bad scores for schoolwork and always felt sick at school, but no doctor could find the cause of the illness. A psychologist she was sent to for counselling radically suggested she be allowed to skip classes if she showed a marked improvement in school grades. This motivated her to start training and developing her memory. She did so well that, at 12, she became the youngest person ever to be awarded the title of Grandmaster in memory training. And at 16, she was Germany's youngest A-Level graduate (School-leavers are usually 18-19 years old).

Today, at age 18, she is a university student in Munich studying politics. She appears regularly in the media, and is a strong advocate of the need to make our education systems more stimulating. She gives talks at schools on how to make learning enjoyable.
