I came to this book after reading Moonwalking with Einstein and taking an interest in the Art of Memory. I also read this after having read about half of Frances Yates "The Art of Memory" The version I read was a free version distributed by the University of Toronto http://archive.org/details/adcherenni...

For those looking to practice the Art of Memory, I think the Yates summary is superior in the sense that Yates's book gives more versions for how the Art evolved over time and thus gives option

An interesting piece. The last paragraph will provide summary:

"Indeed I have shown how in every type of cause one ought to find ideas. I have told how it is proper to arrange these. I have disclosed the method of delivery. I have taught how we can have a good memory. I have explained the means by which to secure a finished style. If we follow these principles, our Invention will be keen and prompt, our Arrangement clear and orderly, our Delivery impressive and graceful, our Memory sure and lasti

I originally came to this book to seek out Cicero's discussion of the art of memory, which appears on pages 205-225 (book III, sections XVI-XXIV) of the Harvard University Press edition (note that opposing pages feature the Latin text so the treatment on memory is half as long as it appears from the page breadth). This discussion, for me, was worth the book alone, as I have been studying the lost art of using vivid images and locations ("backgrounds" to Cicero) to memorize significant amounts of ...more

Although (1) Cicero didn't really write it, (2) it says nothing truly original, and (3) it was written over 2,000 years ago, this is an excellent trial advocacy manual.

Came across this book after reading 'Moonwalking with Einstein', as many have, since it lays the foundation for modern day mnemonic techniques which are widely used in the field of memory. Problem is, this topic is only adressed for 15 pages. Seen as the rest is dedicated to the art of rhetoric, it's impressiveness lies mostly in the historical age of the text rather than the content itself which was somewhat dull in my view.

The "Rhetoric for Herrenius" was probably not written by Cicero, although he most certainly used the text as a "handbook." Nevertheless, it is a brilliant, comprehensive study of rhetoric and oratory that contains advice and principles that are valuable to the modern writer.

I came across this book from Douglas Wilson. I would recommend his book, "The Rhetoric Companion" unless you want in depth details. This book nails everything on Rhetoric. I loved the section about Memory.

Excellent; shows just how constant the rules of communication have been over the years; what held true then holds true now.

Rigorously didactic, well organized, with lots of easy to follow examples. Perhaps the best textbook-style treatise on Rhetoric in the classical period.

Cicero is helpful for use in my rhetoric class, particularly with adding the polish to the language and practicals of public speaking.
