This book doesn't screw around, and you get exactly what you pay for; namely, a large collection of various mnemonics that you can use to memorize large bits of information. As with all memory books, practice and reinforcement are the key, and just going over a mnemonic a few times until you have it memorized isn't going to keep it in your head forever. Timed intervals are the way to go.

This book's subtitle is "How to remember all the stuff you ever wanted to know." Evans has obviously spent a lot of time collecting mnemonic strategies from every discipline, age level, and ability level. From Astronomy to Zoology, this book contains every mnemonic I have ever used or taught, plus many, many more.
