Yes, this is a great memorization technique and it doesn't have to just be Russian vocabulary.
The idea of the Mind Palace and how to set one up. WHERE was this forty years ago when I was having to memorize vast quantities of German vocabulary and chemical and physics formulae? It would have helped me a lot during exams.
Although I consider myself to have a pretty good memory, I have struggled so much with Russian vocabulary over the past two years. Mr Metivier is correct when he says saying that there are better ways of learning vocabulary than rote memorization . I learned my vocab. list for the whole month in one day! I ma very excited about this method , and I am going to share it with Russian class tonight.
The book is fun, with a lively approach to learning. There are a lot of details- additional resources are noted throughout, there are free worksheets to help you build your Palace, and Mr Metivier welcomes questions and answers them promptly.

The narrator was very good- but it would have been great to have Mr Metvier read it himself.
To paraphrase the book, when we memorize, we learn"and when we learn we are fully alive.
There is a lot of valuable information here so you might need to pause and take some notes
You might need to ask yourself why you have chosen this book? What you feel you are deficient in and why you are struggling with learning a new language? Our brains have a natural sponge quality if we are relaxed and you maybe should just work with that first before applying these artificial techniques. When you hit barriers and limits then you may need to employ some of the techniques Anthony outlines, otherwise you might be sabotaging your own innate ability and undermining your self-confidence.
Ultimately this is all about you and your mind and learning how to play with it in creative ways in order to boost your learning ability.

Anthony is a very intelligent and stimulating guide and if you want to stay interested in memory work he is worth being connected with and he is constantly creating new material with lots of helpful advice. One thing though that he probably has covered somewhere in one of his books that I have not come across yet, is the idea that you might be struggling and looking for some memory techniques because you are run down and your brain just feels old and tired out. So as well as a memory palace you might need things like Super Lecithin and Vitamin B12 supplements so that you feel up to doing that memory work in the first place. So it is worth researching that topic. But Anthony is certainly inspirational and can teach you a lot. Good luck and enjoy learning valuable things and learning to work with your mind's amazing abilities.
