Entertaining and useful read.

Ed Cooke has put together several surreal 'journeys', with amusing illustrations, to help people put to memory certain lists. I can imagine students finding this way a lot easier and much more appealing to learn the list of kings and queens for instance. This method puts into practice the three tenets of memorisation - the technique of Loci, visualisation and association - but doesn't tell the readers how to do this for themselves. Therefore this book is best use

Reading this book has been a joyful experience. This man trained Joshua Foer!

About three years ago, I used this book to memorise the entire sequence of kings and queens of England starting from King Offa. Today, I can tell you there's maybe six Georges? Eight Henrys? A Harald, maybe? It didn't stick.

This is a well-written, engaging introduction to building "memory palaces" and becoming a memory master! I really enjoyed memorizing the examples in the book, and using the same ideas to create my own ways to remember things I care about.

Useful if you specifically want to remember the Kings of England, the Presidents of the US, or the Prime Ministers of England. Otherwise it's not real helpful for other memory applications.

This book demonstrates the techniques that Joshua Foer’s book “Moonwalking with Einstein: The Art and Science of Remembering Everything” talks about. As a matter of fact, the author of this book was Joshua’s coach for the American Memory Championship. Other than demonstrating the techniques (learning the Kings of England, Presidents of the United States and Prime Ministers of Britain), it doesn’t offer much else.

Loved this book. Provided me days of entertainment. Going through my memory palaces on the train and walking to work. Pretty much nailed Kings and Queens of England, US Presidents and UK Prime Ministers.

I've been interested in memory palaces since reading Moonwalking with Einstein. These are excellent examples of how a professional builds memory trails.

Highly recommended.

A very daft book. Cooke explains his technique to learn anything by giving a thorough example of how to remember the whole British royal family and the presidents of the USA. He gives tips on how to use this technique to learn absolutely anything else.
