Through his ability to demonstrate extraordinary feats of the mind, as well as educate others to do the same, this U.S. Memory Champion is widely regarded to be one of the greatest memory experts in the world. He is the author of the best-selling book, "Instant Memory Training for Success", published by leading academic publisher John Wiley & Sons (Wiley), and "Mastering Memory: Techniques to Turn Your Brain from a Sieve to a Sponge", published by leading nonfiction publisher Sterling Publishing (Sterling). His memory talents have been featured in numerous media outlets including the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Washington Post, CNN, NBC, ABC and PBS. From recalling a random 100-plus digit sequence in five minutes to naming every U.S. congress person’s state and district number, there’s no memory challenge Chester hasn’t taken on.
While Chester understands his exceptional skill, he also believes that every person has the ability to demonstrate amazing abilities with their memory given the proper technique and guidance. Through workshops, corporate trainings, or his renowned speeches and presentations, Chester has developed a knack for passing on valuable memory techniques in ways that are easy to understand and retain for years to come.

On nearly every continent in the world, Chester has inspired thousands of people to develop their memory. And as the International Man of Memory, this is the accomplishment that makes him most proud.
