My good opinion of this author went down with one of the suggestions he made for remembering numbers. However, in combination with THE MEMORY BOOK by Harry Loraine and someone else, seems it would work pretty well. The theories are popular with other memory strategists like Ron White, so chances are they'll work if I use them.

A good resource for the memory generalist, but there's not much in this volume for linguists... save a short chapter on vocab building. The best chapter is the one on reviewing in order to improve memory, which shows the memorization curve and is effectively a recap of your basic SRS/goldlist models.

One of the better books on memory techniques - worth having on your own bookshelf. Still hunting for a book describing how to apply and practice these techniques to develop a superior memory.
