Anthony’s work is the “real deal”
by Ila Mila on Dec 03, 2014
Folks, I’ve been searching for this kind of material ever since in 1984 I read the book “The Memory Palace of Matteo Ricci” … if you’ve never read it, it is a FASCINATING historical account of how the monks of the Catholic Church used Memory Palaces to memorize scripture, and then took that to foreign countries where they memorized other languages in order to propagate the scriptures… amazing. And then I read about Memory Palaces in one of the Hannibal Lecter books … searched and searched for how to REALLY use the Memory Palace methods, and only this week stumbled across Anthony’s teachings. This guy is brilliant …. Anthony, I’m hooked … starting your training next week sir … I want to increase my Vietnamese vocabulary and you even have a how-to and free audio on memory palaces JUST FOR Vietnamese … you are a God-Send sir…
Magnet Memory System – Remembering Numbers using the Major Method
by Junjiae on Oct 20, 2014
Dr. Metivier provides a comprehensive examination of his Mnemonic system of learning and recall. His coverage is both engaging and thorough and is applicable to the memory enthusiast and anyone interested in exercising their minds. There are several subtopics explored including assimilating new languages and remembering strings of numbers. I found his method of instruction exciting and Dr. Metivier has changed how I think about and catalog my daily experiences. I highly recommend all his podcasts. The Major method to remember strings of numbers was a favorite and so easily applied.
A life-changing tool for learning anything and everything!
by Med-Student21 on Oct 13, 2014
I am so glad I stumbled upon Anthonyâs podcasts and youtube videos – it has completely transformed the way I learn. I learned some of the basics about Memory Palaces and related concepts about a year and a half ago, but abandoned it after I faced some initial roadblocks. At the time, I could not find the further guidance or advice on how to expect and manage these obstacles. As the days went on, however, I noticed that my mind was constantly going back and creating visual images as a means to remember information (Iâm a science grad student, btw), so I thought there must be more material out there which might be better at educating me on how to properly use memory techniques. That is when I found Anthonyâs podcasts and his Youtube videos. It is so refreshing to hear someone who has obviously mastered his own memory system advise beginners on the roadblocks they will face and how best to manage and overcome them. I have been a dedicated Magnetic Memory Memorizer ever since. I try to listen to as much of Anthonyâs material as I can during breaks from studying, and even within the past few months of implementing some of his techniques, I have already started to notice tremendous improvements in my memory. More surprising than that, I have been shocked at the improvements I have observed in the way I take in information in general. It really has begun rewiring my brain to learn more effectively and efficiently.I havenât taken Anthonyâs online class yet, but I definitely intend to after my next set of midterms. I actually canât wait to delve even deeper into the strange and wonderful world of Memory Palaces and crazy images!Thanks Anthony for this tremendous resource, and thank you for your dedication to spreading it to people who are in dire need of it (like me!).
You have Inspired me to challenge myself

I really enjoyed podcast 5,22,24,28 & 34. I also have your dream recall book going to try applying what I’ve learned from you so far.
Magnetic Memory Method!
by iShred123 on Oct 11, 2014
This podcast is an awesome resource with all the other things Anthony Metivier has to offer. After listening the most controversial language technique in the world , I’ve learned that it is actually good to be open to different types of memory techniques, and why it is important to go to actual libraries and bookstores since there is only about less than 15% of written material such as books, magazines, and etc. available online. I will keep on developing memory using the Magnetic Memory Method for memorizing vocabulary and whatever else I need to remember. Being a Udemy student of both Anthony and Jonathan Levi, it was great listening to their approaches on memory, and how different approaches lead to the ultimate goal of having a good memory. This podcast is a great and I recommend it to anyone that wants to improve their memory.
Jonathan Levi Interview-Speed Reading
by MarkAron27 on Oct 10, 2014
I found this podcast inspiring and interesting especially because of how much I have enjoyed Anthony Metivier’s generous sharing of his passion for memorization. Yet, I was pleased to the introduction to yet another person who is outstanding in the teaching of how we learn. Both of these men, mentioned the excitement that comes from paying attention to being goal directed, forming metrics to achieve those goals, and creating a sense of mission about one’s learning tasks. While I wanted to know about Levi’s thoughts on speed reading, I appreciated what may have seemed to be to others side points of what works in learning. For example, I appreciated the point about the use of action imagery can elicit associations about not only the meaning of words but also the pronunciation of them. I literally have this problem in absorbing the pronunciation of medical terminology( for which Metivier has a book on.) Not read yet by me. As a clinical psychologist, I am biased toward wanting to understand the neurobiology behind memory palaces and the way that are brains proccess and consolidate information. Thus, even though Harry Lorayne may be correct that most people want to simply benefit from the skills of mneumonics; I continue to be interested in the academic literature on this subject as well.
This has helped me a lot
by memorypeoples on Oct 10, 2014
I have been a fan of memory techinques for a while. These podcasts have tought me a lot about organizing memory palaces and learnin a lot of things a lot faster. I recommend these to everyone I know trying to learn languages faster.
Worth your time
by mflogstad on Oct 10, 2014
I have been trying to memorize a great deal of regulations for my job, and everything taught here has worked wonders for me. The techniques can be used by anyone and are worth trying!
Just starting out…
by its_a_great_day on Oct 04, 2014
I’m a absolute beginner to Anthony’s Magenetic Memory Method and hope to make use of the technique to memorize technical details, system commands, errormessages and resolutions, etc. I’m a subscriber to Anthony’s newletter and they are always have informational, inspirational and sometimes humorous content. Here I go into the next podcast…
Best Memory Method I’ve Ever Heard
by Jpthefitz on Oct 02, 2014
These podcasts have changed the way I Memorize and learn, I know that I’m just barely scratching the surface of the memory method and I am excited to learn more!! This method helps in day to day life and when studying for tests or vocabulary! I love the academic applications of the major method, as well as the practical application. If you ever wanted to have a better memory, or to impress your friends or achieve more in school, this is the method for you!!
From Sponge Brain to Magnetic Brain
by Fantaszy on Oct 02, 2014
What happens if you squeeze the sponge? All the liquid flows out! But if you learn the ways of the Magnetic Memory Method, you won’t be leaking out information as often! Anthony makes memorizing fun and engaging, with informative podcasts that include interviews, tips, and motivational strategies to help all of us develop the brain we all desire. Iâve seen results in only a couple of hours of practiceâ¦ And the results last long term! I have begun memorizing the muscles of the human body using his techniques and it’s so much more fun than just employing repetitive techniques!
by Theron Mathis on Aug 08, 2014
I used similar memory techniques for year but Anthony provides a structure that allows me to retain and recall that never before. I’ve listened to at least 5 of his episodes and learn something in every one. His book on memorizing the Psalms is excellent.
by gonzjoe on Jul 16, 2014
The concepts Anthony Metivier lays out are simple and apparently very effective. I’ve used similar techniques in the past, so I know they’ll work. What Anthony has done is put it all together in a clear and easy to follow program. I’m excited to dig in and do the exercises. I wish I had been exposed to this several decades ago. But I’m glad to be learning it now.
Renewed my interest in memory techniques
by Morpheus317 on Jul 06, 2014
Anthony Metivier has a great way of explaining memory methods and especially the main technique of Memory Palaces. I downloaded some of his books from Amazon and have been listening to the podcasts. I also got motivated to take his course on Memorizing Poetry. This is someone who clearly loves the Art of Memory and has used to to get a Ph.D. and to support his multiple interests and hobbies. As he suggests in just about every occasion, I’m motivated to show others how to do this also! Highly recommended!
Suitable for Children
by ZorinaA on Jul 06, 2014
I wondered if these methods could be used by my son and this interview showed that these methods are suitable for children. Alicia the girl being interviewed is charming and well spoken. I expect she will be a prime minister someday.
Engage your Inner Child
by Memory noob on Jun 25, 2014
The interview with the 10 year old girl was actually the first podcast I listened to. It was a part of my search for learning different ways of using memory palaces. It’s strange because a child allowed me to open up to using all of my imagination. She helped me to realize not everything has to be all serious and to have fun with learning. By engaging into the mindset of a child, you can learn so much. Why do you think they canm pick up so many skills? Since that podcast, I’ve listened to many more, I can say this podcast really introduces you into the many ways you can engage your mind to memorize different topics. I’m glad I had the opportunity to learn from this! I’m looking forward to learning more.
How to memorize a textbook
by For real get it on May 17, 2014
Excellent pod cast here from Anthony Metivier. Anthony’s method is a solid one, and in this podcast he does a good job of explaining that it is not really a system, even though many people are attracted to that word, but rather a method. I really like his notion of micro vs. macro systems in the memory palace. I also appreciated his focus on altering paradigms in regard to learning, and mentally preparing yourself to study. He’s realistic in the fact that this isn’t a magic trick. I also really liked his idea for index cards. Use them to put limits on yourself, and use them for planning, and save them for later to travel back to your memory palace after a substantial amount of time has passed. All good stuff.also appreciated the fact that he advocates self testing and reviewing. And finally Metivier also does a good job off isolating the relevance of what he teaches, the magnetic memory method is useful in all walks of life.
by Minnesota Youth Director on May 17, 2014
I have looked at a wide variety of memory learning methods and I have appreciated Anthony Metivier’s the most. He lays out all of his teaching in logical and helpful ways. He also gives some really practical ways how to use and incorporate these techiniques in the real world…I will definitely continue going back to him in order to advance in my memory skills!
Motivated to Memorize
by clarkusaquarius on Apr 11, 2014
Thanks to Metivier’s podcast group I have found some motivation to re-visit some memorization goals I have made in the past. From text books to languages, Metivier’s methods are straight forward and easy to adopt as part of you memorization techniques. I am also impressed with his willingness to commend other memorization techniques and contribute so much intellectual property through podcasts and other resources.
by Preacher of the Gospel on Apr 08, 2014
What a fabulous way to memorize just about anything! It seems that as children we are encouraged to have and keep an imagination, but as adults it is looked upon as being silly and not grown up. We need too as adults to use the imagination more for the purpose of these memory techniques! I believe that is why it is much harder for us as adults to remember anything! I look forward to hearing more and applying these techniques to even my preaching without notes! Thank You!
Take your brain to the next level
by Uncle Jello on Mar 28, 2014
Iâve found all of these podcasts extremely helpful in my quest to realize my brains full potential. Iâm constantly trying to learn new ways to improve myself and I believe that this podcast and the information within it will be an integral part in my growth. I also hope to take what iâve learned and pass it on to my family so they can achieve their max potential as well. Thank you, Anthony Metivier, for your hard work and your contributions to the human race and, more specifically, my family.
Super Interesting Content and Fun to Listen to!
by AngryAlexG on Mar 21, 2014
Anthony Metivier presents the magnetic memory method in a really fun and upbeat way. He provides a plethora of helpful tips and hints and gives actionable steps for improving memory palaces. At times he does speak a bit quickly, but you can really feel his passion and excitement for his method through his podcast. His interview with 10 year old Alicia is a phenomenal piece that really shows how fun and engaging the magnetic memory method can be – even for kids. The idea of shaping and creating your own memory palaces in a virtual world is something I never would have thought of on my own. Alicia is truly a memory palace master! I did also really like his thoughts on setting goals and having role models for where someone learning the magnetic memory method wants to ultimately be. Setting smaller attainable goals to avoid frustration (IMO) is crucial. Iâm excited to begin my journey into the palaces of my mind!
by Sirwook on Mar 21, 2014
I also listened to the interview with Alicia Crosby and was very impressed with how far she’s come with this technique! She’s doing things that many adults would be proud to have accomplished themselves, and can only go higher from here. The mind of a child is truly incredible. Minecraft is, in my opinion, virtual legos; the use of this tool will truly help her with future memory palace construction as it is nearly infinite in application, and I’m really glad to know that its potential is being put to use. Go Alicia!!
What an inspiration!
by txredpatch on Mar 21, 2014
To listen to an articulate 10-yr old talk about the fun she had learning something most people I know wouldn’t think about trying is truly inspiring. Alicia helped remove some of my skepticism about the method being “too good to be true”. I’m ready to dive in and see where the journey takes me.
