My name is Barry Wrightman. I'm the author of "Secrets, Tips and Tricks of a Powerful Memory," and I'd like to discuss the question of how do you keep your memory sharp? There are a lot of different answers to that all kinds of converging ideas, but let me suggest first general health and a decent sleep time. If you're not in good shape generally, your memory is going to feel that.

Beyond that, I like to think in terms of the many tricks and tips that I convey in my books and other books convey that help you get around any un-sharp memory problems you may have. A lot of people suggest exercise of the brain; is it really valuable? I don't know, although I think I'm a little bit sharper since I started doing crossword puzzles regularly, think of it as exercise just like the heavy weights in the gym. If you do something a lot you're going to develop brain muscle, I don't know, I'm not a medical doctor, but I think it might work. But, I always refer back to the tricks , the mnemonic tricks that I use to remember things to get around any problem there may be.
