Book Review

This book explores the Art of Memory far more deeply than simply the techniques used for memory improvement alone. The tale begins with a description of Simonides' loci method of mnemonics. Yates' book is very well researched and contains a wealth of information about the history of this subject which is a page-turner for anyone with an interest in this area. It was described by one reviewer as "a thought-provoking journey with patient reflection."
