I don't normally write reviews but this deserves some mention considering not much has been said on this "lecture". I put that in quotes cause it doesn't quite capture this work, but is the closest thing that comes to mind.
First based on mixed reviews I have to concede this approach may not work for everyone. For myself I was able to commit all 118 elements to memory in 4 sessions. I took on one session per day and reviewed it a couple of times that day as best I could remember. This allowed me to practice recovery of previous sessions and reinforce the memory on subsequent days.
What I find valuable is not the raw assets, aka the elements themselves, but the general techniques which I plan on applying elsewhere to see how well this can be recreated. Based on what I experienced with a bit of practice it feels very transferable to other lists.
I want to point out a few key things, lists are not knowledge in and of themselves, but they do make solid basis for attaching and retaining facts that can aide experience. This is a technique for holding lists in memory and indexing them,jumping to certain points in that list and being able to recall "nearby" elements.
As a tool for this purpose I'd say the author does an admirable job of teaching the basics. For me this represents a starting point for taking on additional memory techniques. Keep those constraints in mind if you are considering this work.

This is one of the best books I've read! I really have memorized the periodic table!
