1. World's first online memory course for everyone.

Everyone knows that they could get more out of their memory... but until now, hardly anyone has been able to do anything about it.

Whenever we forget a name, miss an appointment, struggle to learn for an exam or feel the terror rise in us at the thought of speaking from memory, we wish we had a memory we could feel confident about.

Everything we do is controlled by memory, and everything could be done better, if only we could take control of what's going on between our ears. With a strong memory we could plan our lives better, manage our time, achieve more at work, be more confident socially, and cope with all the new information we're faced with every day. We could keep our memory skills sharp and our minds active long into old age, and bring up our children in the best thinking habits.

But most people will never do anything about their memory, letting it fail them again and again and developing a conviction that theirs is probably the worst memory in the world.

Jonathan Hancock has one of the best memories in the world. A multiple memory world record holder and World Memory Champion, he was disillusioned by all the overcomplicated and overpriced memory guides on the market. He decided to create the first ever down-to-earth online guide to memory: a straightforward, practical, fun explanation of every aspect of learning and remembering, designed to meet everyone's day to day needs, and at a price everyone could afford.

'What's the point of knowing how to remember pi to ten thousand places, or regurgitating all the teams that ever won the FA Cup?' he says. 'What people want to know is how to remember a couple of bits of shopping on the way home from work; the names of the people sitting at their table at a wedding meal; their friends' birthdays, their computer passwords, their own mobile phone numbers...'

With six books about memory already under his belt and a decade's experience of training people's minds, Jonathan Hancock set out to create the first ever memory website designed for everyone.

'The idea is that everyone who reads it will start benefitting from it immediately. It explains how the memory works in terms that everyone can understand, and demonstrates revolutionary techniques that anyone can put into practice right away. The most important thing is that people see how good their memory actually is, even though they feel they've struggled with it all their lives.'

Jonathan taught himself to have the best memory in the world, and he's convinced that everyone can develop memory skills to help their lives. 'For more than ten years I've been training people from four to eighty-four to start using their memories properly. I've not found anyone who didn't amaze themselves with what they could do. Whether you're a student struggling with exam revision, a stressed-out professional drowning under a tide of new information, or a busy parent desperate to stay in control of life, this website provides you with practical advice for harnessing the creative power of your memory.'

'It's a great feeling to be confident about your memory.'

Memorypower.org is the result of Jonathan's personal adventures in memory. It explains the best strategies for learning words and numbers, lists, names, spellings, foreign languages... It reveals the secrets of speaking from memory, and demonstrates how everyone can start to be more memorable to others. It includes Jonathan's own system for memorizing playing cards which won him two Guinness world records, and a unique technique for remembering numbers that has been described as the most powerful ever devised. It explains how your brain works, and what you need to do to make it work for everything you need to know.

'I've seen how basic memory training changes people's lives,' Jonathan says. 'Through memorypower.org, I want as many people as possible to realise how powerful their memory potential truly is.'

The author:

At the age of 16, Jonathan Hancock invented a system for memorizing playing-cards and broke the first of his two Guinness World Records. For three years running he was ranked as the best in the world at remembering names and faces. In 1994 he became the youngest ever World Memory Champion. He has used his memory skills to achieve a First from Oxford University, and to pursue a successful career as a broadcaster with the BBC.

Jonathan has written six books about memory and learning, including Maximise Your Memory (Reader's Digest) and Mindpower System (Hodder). A consultant to telecommunications and entertainment companies, he also runs memory training courses in business and education, and has appeared on radio and television around the world as an expert on memory improvement.

2. Failing Memories, Stolen Secrets

Why you need to switch on your memory to keep your personal details secure

How strong are your computer passwords? How safe are your data files, your emails, your internet banking details? How easy would it be for a thief to guess your new Chip and Pin number?

Unless you're extremely careful in your choice of passwords and PINs, and completely confident in your ability to remember them, you're laying yourself open to electronic attack.

The average computer user in the UK has to remember 21 different passwords, as well as PIN numbers, office door-codes, combination locks... But research suggests that hardly anyone actually trusts their memory to keep those passwords secure. In a 2002 NTA Monitor survey, nearly half of those questioned said they wrote down their passwords because they couldn't be sure of remembering them - even though 84% were choosing passwords that were supposedly easy to remember in the first place. Two thirds of people said they were so worried about forgetting their passwords that they never changed them.

By the end of August 2004, 47.9 million of the new Chip and Pin bank cards had been sent out, meaning that most of us will soon have yet another code to remember, and it needs to be unguessable if it's going to keep our money safe.

As more of our lives are filed away in computers, and as the hackers become ever more sophisticated, the need to trust our human memories increases by the day. Security experts recommend at least an eight digit password for every program or website, made up of random numbers and letters. But who could remember one of those, let alone twenty-one?

So instead of using our memories, far too many of us resort to using family names or dates - even then writing them down in case we forget them, leaving would-be hackers a variety of useful clues.

The ability to remember random, unguessable codes is vital to keeping all our money and personal details secure.

To meet this need, a new website has been created by one of the world's leading memory experts. For the first time ever, a complete guide to using your memory is available to download from memorypower.org. The approach is down-to-earth, practical and fun, but the results are significant: the ability to remember endless uncrackable security codes, plus the power to recall names, times, dates, lists, documents, presentations... the skills to write and speak memorably... the secrets of success in interviews and exams... and the best strategies to achieve true memory confidence, now and for the rest of your life.

Learn how to remember your past, manage your present and plan your future using both sides of your brain. Improve your efficiency at work, become more confident in social situations, and achieve more of your goals in life by learning how to unleash the power of your mind.

The author, memory champion and mind trainer Jonathan Hancock, believes everyone can learn to remember. 'For more than ten years I've been training people from four to eighty-four to start using their memories properly. I've not found anyone who didn't amaze themselves with what they could do.'

'Remembering random passwords and PINs is just the start of it. You develop incredible confidence that you can learn anything, and you start seeing opportunities for using your memory in everything you do.'

Memorypower.org is the result of Jonathan's personal adventures in memory. It includes his own system for memorizing playing cards which won him two Guinness world records, and a unique technique for remembering numbers that has been described as the most powerful ever devised. It explains how the brain works, and what you need to do to make it work for everything you need to know.


The security message is clear: invest in your memory to protect your details and your money with passwords that only you can remember. Memorypower.org shows you how, and lets you reap countless other benefits as you put your trained memory to work in every area of your life.

3. Remember to have a life...

Why you need to switch on your memory to keep your work and home life balanced

The average British couple only spends 26 minutes of the day relaxing with each other away from the television.
The figures, from the Office of National Statistics, show that only 20% of people's time is spent doing things with their partner.
The main shared activity is watching TV, which takes up an average of 54 minutes a day. Eating and housekeeping also take up large amounts of shared time.
Cohabiting couples spend less time together than those who are married, and having children cuts the amount of time couples spend together by around one and a half hours a day


By the time you've done your job, sorted out all the chores, ferried yourself and your family everywhere you need to go and coped with all the new challenges of the day, there's not much time left for anything else. We're all busier than ever before; we all lead several lives, as partners, parents, employees, carers... The world bombards us with new information every second, and it's no wonder that so many of us feel stressed as we try to juggle all the different parts of our lives. It's all too easy to feel out of control, and to end every day exhausted - fit for nothing more than 26 minutes of calm...

There is a solution.

Mind trainer and memory expert Jonathan Hancock describes it as a 'life-changing secret'.

'Learn how to use your brain properly, and you can start to regain control over your life. You plan better, you become more efficient, you do things at the right time and you stop making frustrating mistakes. You begin to feel confident in your ability to handle all the information coming your way.'

His new project, memorypower.org, is designed to teach everyone a new way of using their memory. 'You switch on both sides of your brain, and you unleash some awesome power! You've got everything you need in there to learn all the names, times, date, numbers and lists you need to organise yourself. Plus you open up your imagination, start enjoying learning, and use your mind to help you relax and stay serene, whatever's going on in your life.'

A busy broadcaster, author and father of two young children, Jonathan believes everyone can benefit immediately, however stressed they're feeling. 'For more than ten years I've been training people from four to eighty-four to start using their memories properly. I've not found anyone who didn't amaze themselves with what they could do.'

Now for the first time ever Jonathan's complete guide to using your memory is available to download from memorypower.org. The approach is down-to-earth, practical and fun, but the results are dramatic: the ability to stay in control of your time, the jobs you have to do, the places you have to be, times, dates, names... as well as the power to handle all the new information you're faced with every day. Learn the skills to write and speak memorably... discover the secrets of success in interviews and exams... encourage youngsters to develop the best habits early on... and get hold of the best strategies for achieving true memory confidence, now and for the rest of your life.

Learn how to remember your past, manage your present and plan your future using both sides of your brain. Achieve more and enjoy more by learning how to unleash the power of your mind.
