Grandmaster of Memory, on Mental Performance, Imagination, and Productive Mischief
by Tim Ferriss of thefourhourworkweek.com
Ed Cooke is a dear friend and a Grandmaster of Memory. In 2010, he was interviewed by a journalist named Joshua Foer. Under Ed’s Yoda-like training, Joshua became the very next American Memory Champion in 2011. It took less than a year for Ed to transform a novice from unknown to world-class.
Aha… This interview explores Ed Cooke’s brilliant techniques (many of which I use), strategies, and practical philosophies. To boot, he’s also a wicked funny bastard!
You’ll love Ed. He’s one of a kind.
