Author: Jonathan Hancock taught himself to have a brilliant memory when he was still at school - to win a bet, and then to break two Guinness World Records. He was one of the first people to achieve the rank of Grandmaster of Memory and became World Memory Champion at the age of 22. He has since shown off his remarkable memory on TV and radio programmes around the world.

Alongside his job as a teacher in a busy city primary school, every year Jonathan works with the Learning Skills Foundation to run the national Junior Memory Championship.
