Mind Performance Hacks

O'Reilly published a book filled with "mind performance hacks," tricks to improve your efficiency, creativity, memory, arithmetic skills, and other stuff. I could've spent hours with this book.

You can buy it here [Amazon], but here is a Wiki filled with all of the hacks in the book, like:

  • Use the Number Shape System
  • Use The Dominic System
  • Map Your Mind
  • Contemplate Po
  • Scamper for Ideas
  • Play Mind Music
  • Estimate Square Roots
  • Learn an Artificial Language
Also, O'Reilly lets you access the whole book, supposedly for free, for 14 days.

(Not to be confused with "mind hacks," which is designed to show you how your brain functions.)
