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 there was a way to memorize the pack in 15 minutes? Now there is! 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 Aronson's 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, and 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 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 by simply looking at the pictures, and their eleven-year-old son used their methods to memorize the Mnemonica Stack in a mere 15 minutes!

"The Memory Arts is a valuable asset for anyone wishing to learn about the ancient art of memory techniques. It will prove to be of intense interest to those who have tried and failed to memorise a deck of playing cards; with its interactive approach to teaching a memorised deck in lightening speed. For the student looking to deepen their ability with memory, this will be a hugely valuable addition to their library"
Luke Jermay

"'The Memory Arts' by Sarah and David Trustman 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."
Uri Geller

"The memory arts book is the easiest and fastest way to learn Mnemonica! Flash cards, songs, and rote memory weren't sticking. In one day I read this book and learned the whole stack. Makes me feel foolish wasting all that time trying to learn it any other way."
Daryl Williams

I'm glad I bought this helped me to really understand how VISUAL the memory systems can and should be. And I loved reading's fun. And I memorized the ORDER of the pack in maybe an hour or two with this system.

The shortcoming for me, is that it's hard to quickly "see" the number at which a named card is found. In other words, what's the 22nd card? Hard to quickly get it w/ this system.

But it helps you very quickly understand the order or sequence of the stack. So it is great for that...but for me missed the super easy visual connection to the number of the card.

So for me, I took what I learned from this book (step up the visual and story) and combined it with other Peg systems.

It was a win. Still loved the book, but would love it more if I didn't need to do semi-contrived math to determine where a card is. Also didn't love that if somebody names a card, it's not a quick and easy system for me to quickly know that location.

It's a winner. The art is great. I enjoyed it. But it wasn't the system that worked for me.
