The techniques provided on improving one's memory (or rather one's ability to recall memories), were prolific, varied, simple, and well-presented. Well-presented, by the way, applies not only to the author's ability to skillfully and effectively communicate each process, but also to his light-hearted, perfectly-paced presentation of that information. Add to that a sincere "hats off" to the narrator, who recreated that thoughtful, focused, and fun attitude beautifully.
I had heard some of these mnemonics before (I've been using one or two of them for years), and was at first, pleasantly surprised to hear them being mentioned, then grateful for the refresher, and finally I found myself genuinely thrilled at finding that Ron White had added significant value to what I already thought were a couple of pretty cool tricks. One in particular was coding numbers into words to retain the number accurately and for long periods of time (I still remember the confirmation number for our Disney World dinner reservation for a family vacation about 15 years ago). He not only expands on the version that I had originally run across but provides a pdf that offers suggestions from 1 - 1000. Thank you Sir! Thank you most kindly.
This material works perfectly as an audio book. If your interested in learning some fantastic new ways to remember numbers, lists, faces, story lines, speeches, names, and a few other subject matters that I've forgotten (oops, could someone edit that line out, please?), then you just can't go wrong in adding this audio book to your library. It's worth the cost if you only learn half of the techniques presented.
