Wow. This book is so good!
It’s about…I can’t remember.
How many times have you read something and then, five seconds later,
you have to go back and reread that same page
because you can’t remember what you read.
Here’s the solution for that.
Check this out.
Hey, guys, Ron White here.
哈喽大家好 我是Ron White
Now, we’ve all been there.
We’ve all read a page and then, two seconds later,
we have to go back and reread that page
because we have no idea
what we just read.
Here’s the solution for that,
and this process can be broken down
into six easy steps.
Let’s start with step number one.
Don’t try to memorize as you’re reading.
read with a highlighter or a marker
and underline or highlight the
key words as you are reading,
or take notes as you’re reading.
But, don’t try to memorize as you read.
is you need a technique or a tool
called the Mind Palace,
or it’s called the Method of Loci.
Essentially, what it is,
is you remember a map of a room.
Stand in the doorway of every room in your house
and number five pieces of furniture in each room.
The first room, you might one, two, three, four, five.
第一间 数出一 二 三 四 五
It might be desk, bed, TV, picture, plant.

Then go to the next room and number that room
six, seven, eight, nine, and ten.
六 七 八 九 十
Good things will be desks, or chairs, or computers, or windows,
桌子 椅子 电脑 窗户这些都不错
or showers, or sinks.
This is your Mind Palace and this is actually going to hold the data
that you are memorizing in the book,
which lead us to step number three.
Step number three is,
whatever you want to remember,
you need to turn it into a picture.
Let’s say you’re reading a book a
bout Abraham Lincoln.
The picture for Abraham Lincoln could be a penny
because Abraham Lincoln is on the penny.
And maybe you want to remember he was born in Kentucky,
so you’re going to need a picture for Kentucky.
Maybe you would use the Kentucky Derby.
And maybe you want to remember he was the 16th President.
You need to create a picture for 16
and you might use a car for that
because you get your driver’s license when you’re 16 years old.
So, everything you have highlighted or everything you have underlined,
you’re going to create pictures for
to remember those highlighted or underlined words.
Pretty easy, right.
All right. Let’s move on to step number four.
Step number four is,
is you use the pieces of furniture
in your room to store the data.
The first point that you want to memorize
is Abraham Lincoln was born in Kentucky.
So, you think of a penny
and a penny is racing around
the Kentucky Derby.
Now, you take picture
and you put it on the first piece of furniture in your house.
Maybe the first piece of furniture in your house is a table,
so a penny racing around the Kentucky Derby.
The second thing you want to remember
is Abraham Lincoln was the 16th president.
So, you see a penny for Lincoln,
and the penny is driving a car for 16,
and you see that on the second piece of furniture, which may be the refrigerator.
You see a penny driving a car
around the refrigerator.
Every point that you have underlined, you turn into a picture,
and you would see on pieces of furniture around your house
five in a room.
And that’s how you remember points from a book.
All right, guys. Let’s go on to step number five.
好 下面 我们来看看第五步
Step five is simply,
if you want to remember five points from every chapter,
you use one room to represent every chapter
because you have five pieces of furniture in every room.
If you want to remember ten points from a chapter,
You just use two rooms to represent that chapter.
And, if you want to remember 15 points from a chapter,
You just use three rooms for that chapter.
So, those are the five steps that you need
to memorize what you read.
If you want to remember dates,
like you’re reading a history book,
there is an optional sixth step.
To remember dates,
you need to create pictures for the date.
For example, maybe you use a Cupid
for Valentine’s Day, for February.
For March, you might use soldiers marching to remember the month of March.
April showers to remember the month of April.
So, that’s an optional sixth step,
creating pictures for the months
to remember important dates
if you’re reading a history book.
So, in recap, number one,
don’t memorize as you read.
But, instead, highlight or underline as you read.
create a Mind Palace, locations in a room
where you’re going to store the data.
turn whatever you want to recall into a picture.
See it as an animated image.
store those pictures
on the pieces of furniture around your house
in your Mind Palace to remember the details of what you read.
Number five, you segment the chapters.
You put everything about one chapter in one room.
And then, finally, the optional sixth step,
if you want to remember dates,
you just need to create pictures for those dates.
This is a simple method.
It’s called the Mind Palace.
Sherlock Holmes used it in his books.
