Description
The mnemonics that many of us learned as children are simply a shortcut to help locate information within your memory. For instance, rather than remember that the clockwise order of the points of the compass is North, East, South, West, we remember the mnemonic "Never Eat Shredded Wheat," and the combination of humor and a visual reference provides an instant cue for our brains. This collection of mnemonics includes well-known examples, some of which have been in use for centuries, as well as more recent ones and alternatives to the traditional versions. Ranging across history, science, language, numbers, business, art, and much, much more, the mnemonics included here provide quick easy access to a vast amount of fascinating and useful information. In addition, there are sections on working out your own methods and systems to augment the existing mnemonics with your own aides-m moire, which can help you with everyday tasks such as avoiding common misspellings, or remembering names, faces, and numbers.
