Our customers RAVE about this "Memory Arts" series and its concept. Basically, this ebook is written by two memory experts, and they have found a way, with a combination of silly visuals and proven techniques, to assist in the memorization of a deck of cards. This edition is SPECIFICALLY designed to help you learn Patrick Redford's stack in less than two hours. That's right! After just two hours, you'll be able to recite the cards in order, or instantly know what card corresponds to what stack number.

The product itself is an ebook with gorgeous paintings that tell an outrageous and, thankfully, unforgettable story. By reading the story, you will AUTOMATICALLY memorize The Redford Stack. How cool is that?

Using a time-tested memory technique, you will absorb a story so sensational and outrageous that you will barely notice that you are committing an entire pack of cards to memory. As time goes on, the story falls away and you will be left with a fully-memorized pack of cards. You can use this method to learn to memorize a shuffled deck, but its primary purpose is to help you memorize the Redford stack QUICKLY.

More on the book:

This groundbreaking book introduces the ancient art of memory and recollection by presenting a Layered Mnemonic Methodology—in GRAPHIC form—that teaches the fundamentals of a trained mind through playing card memorization. In the days of Plato and Aristotle, these systems were part of formal education, and for thousands of years their instruction has been passed down via written word, requiring the reader to translate those words into images.

Recognizing that written letters are natural to none, The Memory Arts bypasses the unnatural for the natural, providing beautifully painted locations designed specifically for memory storage and retrieval. THE MEMORY ARTS provides a methodology so refined even a 6-year-old can learn how to memorize a shuffled deck of cards, a list of over 25 items that can be called back in any order, and countless phone numbers. The principles taught in this book are directly applicable to every area of life, be it business, math, history, shopping lists, speeches and more.

Sarah and David Trustman caught the mnemonics fever several years ago. After extensively studying the art of memory and its use of vivid imagery, they realized that the best way to teach the mnemonic arts is not through words, but rather through pictures. Luckily, David is an artist and comic book creator, so they got to work and created the first ever graphic novel on card memorization! "The Memory Arts" is taught predominantly through vividly painted watercolor images specifically designed for recollection. The book explores their new take on card memorization, enabling the reader to memorize a shuffled deck with little effort.

'The Memory Arts' by Sarah and David Trustman a fantastic read. It is indeed one of the best books on memory and beyond. The book is a great tool to better your skills and talents. I highly recommend it.Uri Geller
The memory arts book is the easiest and fastest way to learn mnemonica! Flash cards, songs, and rote memory weren't sticking. In one day I read this book and learned the whole stack. Makes me feel foolish wasting all that time trying to learn it any other way.Daryl Williams
The Memory Arts is worth your time and attention. It is full of useful tools and systems that are both flexible and practical. You should read this, apply this and enjoy this.Chris Rawlins
The Memory Arts is a valueable asset for anyone wishing to learn about the ancient art of memory techniques. It will prove to be of intense interest to those who have tried and failed to memorise a deck of playing cards; with its interactive approach to teaching a memorised deck in lightening speed. For the student looking to deepen their ability with memory, this will be a hugely valuable addition to their libraryLuke Jermay

Upon further review, I think I gave it an unfair review because I was only thinking about my own needs. Anyone looking to memeorize stacks, this is the way to go. So if you want to finally memorize a stack, get these downloads. If you want to memeorize more than one stack and take your memeory to another level, get the main book

Not so happy about the 26 locations, wish it was 52. I just wanted to learn the Redford Stack, but having two for one hinders callback. I did Mega memory back in the day, and the authors do a great job at explaining the art, but when you want to know a deck back and forth cold, absolutely no math should be involved...only for the effect. I guess that is why they are memory experts instead of performers.

So if you really want to learn AND use the Redford stack, just get the main book instead of wasting money and time here...which I will be doing, and adding a little method to systematically learn it cold back and forth.

I think I have to agree with the original review here. The main book, The Memory Arts, is fantastic. It finally allowed me to grasp how to properly build a memory palace and apply it to numerous things. I had hoped that this would be a great addition by having the Redford stack already built. Well, it does and it doesn’t. They ease you into the memory paths by starting with 26 locations. You get the 52 cards by jamming two into a location. The problem is, I’ve already got 52 locations, so it screws me up that the 2nd position card is on location 1. This method also slows down recall quite a bit. They even mention that you’ll get around to memorizing all 52 in book B. This seems as though it was copied from the main book, as that is split into two parts. Nowhere does it mention that this is just the first half of the book, and I have yet to see a part 2 for sale for this. They should have skipped all the advanced memory mapping stuff and given you a proper 52 location path for a special stack edition. The stack is the whole point of getting this instead of the main book (which, btw, has Mnemonica and Aronson)! To top it all off, this ebook crashes the Vanishing Inc app, so you can’t even read it from the app. Do yourself a favor and just get the main book, The Memory Arts. It has everything you need for any stack, as well as more history and advanced techniques. Just have to do a little more work to put together Redford with this method. Really disappointed in this half a book since the “parent” book is so excellent.
