If you'd like to double, triple or even quadruple your ability to learn Italian vocabulary by using simple memory techniques that you can learn in 30 minutes or less, then this may be the most important audiobook that you will ever listen to.
Believe it or not, it really doesn't matter if you think you have a good memory or not. Frankly, if you can memorize a short email address or the name of a movie, then you can use this system to memorize a language as rich and diverse as Italian.
Plus, everything you'll learn in this audiobook applies to every other language that shares the same alphabet with English. And with a little imagination, the ideas are easily transferable to other alphabet systems too. But there's really no time to lose. Every day that you are not using this simple vocabulary memorization system, you are literally stealing from yourself the joy of being able to read, speak, and recall an abundance of Italian vocabulary as you easily expand the natural abilities of your mind.

It got carried away with how clever it was, obscure became confusing and although I think the premise is good the execution rambled on and became convoluted eventually it lost me.
"This has nothing to do with Italian"
No to first question . Possibly to second.
I thought the book would have Italian vocabulary within it but it was all about improving memory and remembering vocabulary. Other than the occasional reference to 'learning Italian' this could be a book about memorising anything.
Narrator was good
If you are looking for Italian vocabulary, look elsewhere. The preview is replicated throughout the book. There is nothing more!
How things change. Last I wrote a review it was for audible - now there are 3 categories - for audible.uk, audible.cam and amazon ..... why... i really do not want to click on 3 tabs to look at a book review - nor do I want to enter it 3 times.
C'mon audible - sort this out !!!
now for my review ....
THIS BOOK IS EXCELLENT
I recommend any language learner adopt these techiniques from Day 1. The concept of memory palaces is at last clearly explained and memory storage has completely bought me into this technique.
For the first time I can actually cement words in my memory. No longer will I ever have to say - I knew that but forgotten it - this technique really works and is so simple - and you never forget what you have learnt.
I now have 200 difficult words cemented in memory - the next step to take it to 1000 should be easy, When you consider we only use 2-3000 words for fluency I feel this technique is helping me get there.
I am not saying this is the best way to memorise words - but so far - for me it works .
