Anthony Metivier master class


Are folks here familiar with Anthony Metivier? If so, is it worth it to buy his "Magnetic Memory Method Master Class" for $200? That is A LOT of money for me.

He obviously knows his stuff as Bateman has pointed out in another post. If money were not an issue for me I'd just buy it, it seems perfect for me. I really like his style.

Perhaps someone could recommend one of his book/videos if they tried them?

Is it feasible to think I could learn as much on my own? Do his methods make memory improvement that much quicker or more effective?

I've bought a Kindle edition of his book "How to Learn and Memorize French Vocabulary". For some reason Amazon advertised the book at 2.99 here but ended up charging me 4.99, don't know why. I've not finished the book yet (for a while I had time to only read a couple of pages in bed), but my point is you can try some of the more accessible Kindle editions of the books and judge for yourself.

I was also thinking about it. I wanted to try it, however, it is a lot of money. I have to say though that what is missing to me is a little bit of the guidance, the time guidance I mean. What I normally find difficult in the books (totally personal) is to have a track with what I am doing, if the book tells me 20 exercises, does it mean that I have to do all of them every day? Sometimes I miss a little bit of, do this or do that. It is not explained (or I haven't seen it) how many hours you should invest in the method, so that it works. I know that it is subjective and depends on the person, but there should be an average of hours per week to really notice a cool improvement...

However, I am trying the memory palace for formulas as he suggests in some podcast and at the moment I have around 50 formulas stored in my palace, not much but I think that it is well known that the approach works. So I think that maybe his approach is a boost to the loci, making it more effective?

If you know anything about it, I am very interested in knowing it.
Thank you!

I got his language vocab and it was mostly inspirational motivation, not techniques.

I got the newsletters and there is a lot there. Thus far has been helpful.

I really appreciate the feedback.

like Urfin suggests, get a kindle book.

Personally, I want more specific techniques. I think it'll be worth it to have experienced advise and guidance. I just have to bite the bullet. When I do I'll report back.

Hi Caz, I'm curious to know if you have ever joined that course? If so, how was it? Do you think it is worth the price? Thanks!

Hello Caz!
The class is WELL worth the money! I bought it in January of this year. The class filled in SO many gaps in my understanding of memory palaces and other memory techniques. You can get a lot of the same information from listening to his Podcasts for free but the class is set up in a step-by-step manner. And like you, I enjoy his style.

What is the difference in his method?
Is it PA or PAO based? or any other?

All known methods are clearly explained here on this forum with a lot of details, is his method a secret? faster & better? so that it is worth investing $200?

I'm reading and listening to his material. He is basically teaching the method of loci with a few new insights.

I don't think that's substantially different from anything I've read about memory palaces. And now the price for his Masterclass has gone up to $497!

I think what he presented that is more distinguishing of other methods is his way of organizing the palaces. He recommends that people should use an alphabetical classification, A-Z. Each palace should match the letter, like "Andrew's garage" for A memory palace. Becouse of that, you should never have a closed route in the MP, because you should be able to add new stations to the journey.

He specialized in memory palaces, so he is a good source of them, but the price has put me off.
