How to remember things

As I’ve previously mentioned, I’m currently reading the book “Tricks Of The Mind” by the British magician Derren Brown. I repeat that this is a badly-written work – and I’ll review it when I’ve finished it – but it does contain some very interesting subjects and ideas.
Brown devotes a chapter to memory tricks which gives an insight into how a brilliant performer like him can demonstrate such prodigous feats of memory. The techniques he describes are actually pretty complex and would not appeal to many people with more normal lives.
But the book got me thinking and I decided to pull together another – the 23rd – contribution to the ‘Life Skills’ section of my web site called “How To Remember Things”. See if there’s anything there that helps you and please let me know if you have any ideas or techniques that I should add.
