Essentially a trivia book (and listed under the subject "Reference--Trivia"), You Must Remember This is a compendium of mnemonic devices, most of which we learned as children. The emphasis is on rote memorization, which is not true learning, and should not be used as a substitute for understanding a subject.

If you are looking for a memory improvement book, this is NOT the one. 99.9% of this book is just mnemonic phrases that one learns in childhood. There are a couple of ones that I hadn't seen before, but not worth it. I am looking for a book that helps me build my own mnemonic system for remembering things. This books spends a couple pages outlining a couple, but it doesn't go into any depth; it is not very helpful.

I was expecting something different from this book. It basically gave specifics from literature to the solar system among other topics which I didn't find useful. I wanted a more overall way of helping my memory & this wasn't it. I don't care about certain details of history or science per say. I didn't even bother finishing it since I found it to be more of a waste. Seems like something that those in school would find useful.

I bought this book in the hopes that I would learn some tips and tricks that would improve my memory. As a commenter below mentioned, this book is essentially a trivia book --which is disappointing as it seems to marketed as something more substantial. However, the trivia it does contain is interesting enough.
