Mtpascoe,

Thanks for your testimony. Your kind words are much appreciated.

If you didn't use the Joyal Stack in the last four months, you might want to try the refresher on my web site.

Here is the link: http://www.joyalstack.com/index.php?p=mdpj

(As of today, there is no need to subscribe to my newsletter to access this web page.)

Thank you Mr. Joyal for that. I like your book and like I said you teach it very well.

Hi all,
Hope not to appear too out of my depth so just to let you know, I have ventured into the world of the memorized deck for the first time over the last two weeks.
I have just memorised the Shadow Stack from Tom Crosbie's Recall DVDs. I obviously have nothing to compare this against but I have to say it has been and is a great experience.
The method I used to memorise the deck was to number the back of each card 1-52 then on the face draw (with various coloured markers) a big number or number and picture symbol or partern that I then begin to associate with that number, one week all done. It's a fantastic experience to now sense the cards as a number and it's like the cartoon/drawing has gone. I feel quite proud of my self!
I fully realise that the true work has only just begun because there in front of me is the whole stack and all it's possibilities.

For instance Tom's stack has built in the ability to spell to over 26 cards, that will mean learning which cards can be spelt to and the subtle differences of the spelling - anything from 'The five of hearts' to '10 spades'. I would love some advice on a method to memorise those.

I feel I am destined to read some of Mr Lorayne's work any suggestions on a book to start with?

Always nice to let other people say it. Just received the following email: "Mr. Harry Lorayne I want to thank you for your techniques which I read long time ago back in the 80's when I was a teen, they've been very useful throughout my life.

I like to acknowledge you with the techniques and methods for increasing memory, which are really good, I have read some books about it and several magazine and news articles about it and believe me I never found techniques as good as yours not even the explanations.

It amazes me that now days people really think they are discovering like techniques and I see a bunch of people talking about methods to increase their memory capacities saying like they are the creators of this techniques when I know if there was somebody to recognize for this it was you, the real master of the super memory, and I know it because your books were among the first ones to be published detailing memory techniques. Some people are just repeating what you said with different words and based on yours, but we know their foundations are yours. (Where were they back in 1956, when your first book was published.)
Mr. Lorayne, thanks for making this world a better and easier place for us."
