The Memory Arts - Tamariz Edition

Magic download (ebook) by David Trustman and Sarah Trustman ($25.00)

EVERY serious card magician wants to do memorized deck magic, but many are daunted by the time and effort required to memorize a deck. But what if there was a way to memorize the pack in 15 minutes? Now there is! Two memory experts (outside the field of magic) have created an odd but wonderful product. It's an ebook with gorgeous paintings that tell an outrageous and, thankfully, unforgettable story. By reading the story, you will AUTOMATICALLY memorize Tamariz's Mnemonica 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 Tamariz 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.  In fact, their then-five-year-old daughter, unknowingly learned their system by simply looking at the pictures, and their eleven-year-old son used their methods to memorize the Mnemonica Stack in a mere 15 minutes!   


'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

Fred Rosenbaum

This really works! It takes a little time, and it it will take even more time to get it down pat, but after about 20 minutes of serious time I have more than half the deck memorized. The rest will come quickly, then to work on getting it fast. This is the first time I've tried to memorize a deck, I have a normal memory, and this works great for me. Highly recommended.

 

John Granrose

I bought this yesterday and have already learned the stack! I am amazed and delighted! I bought "Mnemonica" years ago and never really tried to learn th stack, so this ne e-book was just what I needed. Thank you to the authors and to VanishingInc.

I have had Mnemonica for a while and really struggled in memorizing the stack and gave up with it thinking I didn't have the 'mind' for it. I bought this e-book not expecting much from it, after no time at all I have the stack memorized and can recall cards out of order, with more work I am 100% confident I will be able to recall the stack at speed. This method of memorizing works! To be honest I'm quite shocked at how well it works.

 

Great product! This is a beautifully designed ebook. The colors and the artwork really help with imagination. I've always been interested in memory loci and palaces but had a hard time due to the lack of resources such as time. However, this book is practical and if you dedicate the time, in a weeks time you'll be able to confidently apply all the principles in the book. Buy and use it! Great find by vanishing inc!

This book is truely a wonderful resource for learning mnemonics. Before I bought this book it took me a week to memorise the first 13 cards of a stack. As soon as I had learnt the techniques in this book I had the entire stack down in a day. This truely is an amazing resource I highly recommend it to anyone looking to improve their memory both inside and outside of magic.

The visual method to the learning the Memory Path is great. It works. I can see it and remember it easily. What is beyond my comprehension is why a $25 pdf which claims to provide a visual system to remember a 52 card stack (Mnemonica) only offers 26 images on the Memory path and not 52 images. I think having to remember 2 cards at for each Memory Path number is lazy and misleading on the part of the author. I should not have to remember card stack number 1 and 2 on Memory Path image 1 and then do some math. Seriously. The Memory path provides a visual cue as to its number. Why are there not 52 images on the Memory Path? I would say this is a great book to remember a half stack. I would be happy to get the other 26 images for number 27 to 52 or half my money back.

 

This system worked so fast for me. After starting the book in the morning and before the work on memorizing cards, I was able to remember a sixteen item grocery list without referring to the written list with no problem at all!. I look forward to many years with a memorized deck through this system.

Like most others, I too am very impressed. I consider myself to have a terrible memory, and I don't consider myself a fast learner. Yet, I've already learned half the stack in a couple of hours, despite taking it at a leisurely pace.

I have no doubt I could learn the full stack with another two hours, but my brain hurts, so I'll leave it for tomorrow, and practice just half the stack for now. It's an oddly satisfying process. It still takes a little mental effort to figure out for example, that card number 12 is the three of diamonds, but it is, and I find myself amazed. Only hours ago I had no idea. With practice I'll become much faster I'm sure.

I disagree with the negative review below. You only need 26 "locations" to memorise the full stack. Why complicate things further? Brilliant. Best purchase in a long time.

I got this and the Memory Arts Aronson Edition, I read the Aronson edition first and is great! I didn’t want to mix cards in my head so I didn’t try to memorize Tamariz’ stack, but the exercises, the explanation, the memory structure and mapping is great! If you want to memorize a deck buy any of The Memory Arts ebooks, they have an Aronson, Tamariz and Aragon edition. It’s your choice what stack do you want to memorize.
