About Harry


This is the headline that was on top of a 3000-word full-page advertisement for my first book. That ad appeared, from 1957 to 1966, continually, in every newspaper in the USA with over 5000 circulation, and in every major magazine. And in newspapers and magazines all over the world. The book sold over eight million hardback copies in just about every major language. Some of my books are pictured near the start of my website – www.harrylorayne.com.

I have studied, practiced, applied, invented, sophisticated, manipulated, taught, demonstrated, written about, lectured on, conducted seminars on, memory training, memory improvement, techniques for well over half a century. My books are the ONLY ones on the subject of memory training to EVER appear on bestseller lists – one of them ( THE MEMORY BOOK ) for over 50 weeks at top of the NEW YORK TIMES list. My books have been Book-of-the-Month Club, Literary Guild, and just about all other book club, selections.

You've seen me many times on all the television shows, remembering the names of everyone in the studio audience (plus memorizing a complete issue of Time Magazine and other feats of memory). (Over 20 times on The Tonight Show – and all the way back to I've Got A Secret [with Garry Moore], To Tell The Truth, Jack Paar, Ed Sullivan, David Susskind, Merv Griffin, That's Incredible, Mike Douglas, The Today Show, Good Morning America, 48 Hours, Regis Philbin, (in England, the Michael Parkinson Show, Paul Daniels Show, Just Amazing) and many more. You'll catch a piece of one of my appearances with Johnny Carson at www.harrylorayne.com.

Featured articles about (and by) me, and my memory techniques, have appeared in many in-flight airline magazines and in most large-circulation magazines, including Reader's Digest, Cosmopolitan, Ladies Home Journal, Vogue, Christian Science Monitor, Gentleman's Quarterly, Fortune, Nation's Business, Forbes, U.S. and World Report, and countless others. I've even been the answer to crossword puzzle clues (“World renowned memory training specialist” – seven letters) and been featured in Ripley's Believe It Or Not .

Hundreds of top corporations use my MEMORY POWER systems as an on-going part of their training programs. (Exxon, Int'l Paper, Boeing, Phillips, Xerox, Mack Trucks, General Motors Corp., Chevron, NASA Headquarters, McDonnell Douglas Corp., Wang Laboratories, Inc., General Mills, Prudential Insurance – and so many more). The video course they use won the award for teaching/presentation from the Int'l Television & Film Festival of New York.
