This is another one of those books about how to memorize abstract concepts using visualization techniques. It wasn't bad, and it was short.
Essentially, the author teaches you to visualize the rooms of your home and link things in your home to mathematical formulas.
There are several other mnemonic techniques and several good tips throughout the book. I particularly enjoyed a section at the end that includes an interview with someone who uses the techniques and the different ways in which he uses them for different types of information.
It's not bad, but there are better versions of this type of book out there, but then again, they aren't as short. The narration was good, and the format of the book flowed well. It's just not the sort of book that was revelatory for me, but if you haven't heard of these types of techniques, it would be a good, quick, and inexpensive primer.

The book could have been 80% shorter without missing a single point. The same information is told over and over again and the topic is oversold to the point of it being ridiculous.
Furthermore, the narrator sounds like a computergenerated voice, with no variation or excitement. The guy sounds as exited as if he was reading the phonebook.
However, if you are patient enough to suffer thru it all, the main points of the book is valuable and can actually teach you how to remember better.
