This book concentrates on the author's name memorization system. The front copy (my paperback) even says 'Take the RP test - study these six names and faces as if your life depended upon it. Then... see inside' and has 6 photos and names to study. Inside the front cover are 10 pictures to pick the 6 people from and name them.
I'm sure many people will think it's a great idea to learn how to remember names but they'll never get around to it. The author points out that we're all aware that you have to learn to drive a car and most people are willing to take lessons to do it, but everyone seems to imagine that remembering names is something you either 'can do' or 'can't' - as if there's no way to improve this skill.
