If there's a mnemonic device Rod Evans has missed, good luck finding it. There are more than a few in EGBDF that I'll be using next time Jeopardy!comes calling. -- Brad Rutter, winner of Jeopardy! 2001's Tournament of Champions, the Million Dollar Masters Tournament, and the Ultimate Tournament of Champions
While Rod Evans's book will be valuable to introductory students in numerous disciplines, it will be particularly valuable as a model for inventing one's own mnemonics. -- Joel Wapnick, 1999 World Scrabble Champion, 1998 Canadian National Scrabble Champion, 1983 U.S. National Scrabble Champion
Wow! I have never found learning so easy and fascinating. I believe this volume will be invaluable to any student who is interested in taking considerably less time to study, fascinating to trivia buffs, and engrossing to the lay public who might never expect to encounter in one book the nuts and bolts of so many different walks of life. This is a keeper. -- Joe Edley, 3-Time American National Scrabble Champion (1980, 1992, 2000)

My son told me that if you remember the word "HOMES" you'll remember the five Great Lakes, Huron, Ontario, Michigan, Erie and Superior. This is in the book. I'm in my mid-forties, and all the years I went to school I never realized something so simple can be so helpful.
There are other mneomic devices in this book that will surely help anyone. For example if you can't remember where to place eating utensils when you set the table, there is this: left has four letters and so does fork. Right has five letter and so does spoon and knife.
This book is helpful for anyone, child or adult who needs help in remembering a process to accomplish a task. This is a book worth buying.
Everything is nicely laid out by categories, making it very user-friendly and quick to reference topics of interest. While not every subject in this book may be relevant to everyone, I feel that everyone will find something in this book that is useful to them and help them to feel just a little bit smarter, even if it is done with the help of some creative mnemonics.
