Remember, Remember: Learn the Stuff You Thought You Never Could
Remember, Remember: Learn the Stuff You Thought You Never Could
by Ed Cooke
Edition: Hardcover

5.0 out of 5 stars Some old mnemonic techniques that bear repeating, 10 Oct 2008
Ed Cooke's little opus is a much-needed reminder of very useful mnemonic techniques, especially those which have to do with word association. This has been recommended as, for example, very useful in vocabulary recognition and learning when studying foreign languages, vocabulary being the most difficult and endless part of foreign-language learning. The more absurd, or indeed obscene, the association, the better it will be remembered. As said, a useful book, especially for students, who have a lot to remember in a short space of time. Well done Ed (was that his name?)!

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent book - no index, 19 Mar 2008
This is without doubt the best book written on the subject of house purchases in Italy. It shows deep knowledge of the history and culture of the country and the variety of its regional cultures. In all respects save one this is an improvement, if such were possible on the two previous ones. Unfortunately, however, this time there does not appear to be an index, and this is a big minus for any informative non-fiction work. I do not know who took the decision to remove the index, the author or the publisher, but either way this was a major error.
