5.0 out of 5 stars Great book that is well worth the money, February 23, 2006
This review is from: The Memory Book: The Classic Guide to Improving Your Memory at Work, at School, and at Play (Paperback)
I am an eternal student and this book is a gem! Just to give you some background, I am a teacher at a high school as well as a yoga teacher at several different places in my city and I have to memorize many names. In the short time that I have had this book, I have been able to memorize a few hundred names, no problem. Also, just for fun, I memorized the Bill of Rights in about 10 minutes and was able to have an intelligent discussion with our resident AP Goverment teacher on the Bill of Rights. What I will say that after you memorize whatever you have memorized, you need to apply it in any way you can. For instance, I discussed the Bill of Rights right away, and I believe that it will be forever etched in my memory. I also play a game with one of my students about vocabulary words. In about 10 minutes, we both memorized the definitions for words like pugnacious, repugn, zeitgeist, obstreporus and many more. A few days later I quizzed him on them and he still remembered all of them! From a teacher/student to anyone who wants to have a better memory, this is a great book!

Is OBSTREPORUS the way Americans ( I was born and educated in South Boston ) spell this unruly word or is OBSTREPEROUS the correct spelling as printed in my tiny Collins English Gem dictionary??? Poor spelling jumps out at me and it may be genetic as my mother, who never finished High (Secondary) School was the winner of a spelling bee.
