A hard Listen

Although there are a few probably useful tricks to helping you remember things in this book, I was unable to struggly thru the last 2 of the 8 CD's. Once I got past the narrator's stilted method of speaking, I thought things would pick-up, but was disappointed.

To be fair, I listened to this in the car, and much of the book requires you to practice different grouping and recall techniques involving writing long series of numbers, words, or alpha-numerics.

Listening to those lists being dictated for the exercises does not make for a dynamic experience. Some good suggestions such as always storing items that are hard to find in standard locations are presented to free the reader's mind from distractions.
