About the Mike Byster Interview

My short bio: Hey reddit! A little about me:

  • I've spoken to thousands of schools in the last 20 years, teaching schoolchildren how to memorize, focus, concentrate, and enjoy learning.

  • I am a huge Chicago sports fan, I love watching crime shows, and love spending time with my family and Golden Retriever, Wrigley!

  • I was a commodity trader at the Chicago Mercantile Exchange for 23 years, but then found my passion was in changing the lives of children, and so I quit in 2004.

  • You can learn more about Brainetics here, and my book here. Here is a short video of me solving some math problems.

Please feel free to ask me any question - I have specific tricks, tips, and exercises relating to memory, focus, concentration, and arithmetic.

Edit: We'll be back on answering questions at 9:00 PM EDT!

Edit 2: Thanks for the great questions! We'll check back in tomorrow, June 6, and answer any remaining ones.
