    This book helped me so much! I memorized all the presidents in like ten minutes. The narrator is also very engaging. The only downside to this book is he does go off on tangents a good bit. But that is overshadowed by how helpful the tips are!

    Interesting book, it gives you an idea of how the brain works regarding our memory.

  • William Keeton

    Great read. Insightful into mnemonics. I am currently in graduate school and a few of these tricks have helped me cram for exams.
