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 you could memorize the pack in 15 minutes?
Now you can! 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 the Aronson 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 Aronson 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. 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 that 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 and their eleven-year-old son used their methods to memorize the Aronson Stack in a mere 15 minutes!
“The Memory Arts by Sarah and David Trustman is 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.”
