about this book

Does learning how to forget actually make someone a more efficient and effective thinker?

According to Mike Byster, the creator of the award-winning memory system Brainetics, the answer is yes! In The Power of Forgetting, Byster demonstrates how mastering this extraordinary technique—forgetting unnecessary information, sifting through brain clutter, and focusing only on important nuggets of data—will allow students to improve the quality of their work and create a more favorable school-life balance.

Using the six tools included in this guide, students will learn how to become more agile thinkers and increase their productivity. Through creative quizzes, games and exercises, students will figure out how to overcome daily distractions that can lead to brain fog, an inability to concentrate, lack of creativity, stress, anxiety and even dread. And they’ll ultimately develop critical skills necessary to achieving success on a daily basis.
