- Remember mnemonics you used to know and learn knew ones too
- Written with humour and wit
- Includes space to make up your own memory-aiding mnemonics
This handy and humorous book is a cornucopia of mnemonics, full of familiar examples from our childhood as well as more recent ones and some alternatives to the traditional versions.
As our memories are mysterious, we need to associate things to relatable bits of information in order to remember them correctly. Consequently, mnemonics are a great way to locate information within your memory by creating shortcuts. For example, 'Never Eat Shredded Wheat' is an amusing and visual reference to provide our brains with an instant cue.
Ranging from history and science to language and art, this book has lots of useful information to keep you entertained. In addition, there are sections on working out your own methods for mnemonics and memory aids.
