Very interesting book. I should have read it when I was a student.

A great instruction on the method of loci, with lots of examples rooted in the Catholic faith. Most of the book is very useful for memorizing lists of things, and even though it touches on memorization of texts (scripture verses) a little bit, that is really covered in a cursory fashion. Whether you use the house described in the book, or your own house as your keyword/location trigger, the method can be used for any list of things. I'll be working through the examples again with my own location [...]

Very interesting book so far. Combines the method of loci with Catholic theology, particularly that of Thomas Aquinas (1225-1274).Not really essential to the book, but I found the Thomasian idea of the 7 Spiritual Works of Mercy and the 7 Corporal Works of Mercy (Summa Theologica, II-II, 32) very interesting. In Chapter 14, the author quotes James 2:20 and then essentially asks the question, "So what are good works?" Good question. At one end of the spectrum, I suppose, someone might say that to [...]

Well organized book describing the method of loci, or memory mansion, technique of memorization. Vost is obviously well-versed in memory techniques, throwing in many references (always in separate boxes so as not to detract from the teaching :) He is also very Catholic, as every chapter takes some example of Christian, often Catholic, teaching and shows us how to memorize it for easy recall. Start slowly with the Ten Commandments and the Seven Deadly sins, but soon you will tackle the 47 books o [...]

This book was incredibly motivating to me after years of feeling discouraged by my seemingly weakening ability to memorize. Kevin Vost explains and guides readers through the loci memorization technique. I memorized his lists quite quickly and am able to still recite them forward and backward today. It is written to Catholics, so I highly recommend it to that audience. However, any reader interested in memorization will find this helpful. As I read, I simply filtered out any information I didn't [...]

Nice, very specific book on mnemotechnics and Catholic religious education. Kevin Vost presents the art of memory in a catechetical context. The art of memory consists not of "drill-and-kill" rote repetition, but rather, of techniques of lively creativity and vivid imagination. For anyone interested in opening his mind and allowing it to reflect on the ideas, beliefs, experiences, and reflections of those who came before us, as well as those who are with us, holding the world and making it vivid [...]

The entire book is a detailed illustration of the loci method of memorization, using Catholic theology. Very good if you want a complete walk through this method, are a Catholic student, or are homeschooling a Catholic education. If you'd rather not endure a religion lesson, another book would be better for you. I did appreciate the way this book walks the reader through the method using a variety of different examples.

I bought this so I could return to it. This is not a book that can be digested in a single reading; rather, it rewards rereading and actually doing the exercises described. I am slowly (but hopefully surely) doing this.Vost describes the Art of Memory as the skill of trained recall, focusing on the Method of Loci, but alluding to other means. The rest of the book is a series of directed exercises in building a "memory palace" to hold various memories.As Vost notes, the method is not limited to t [...]

You knew there had to be a better memory method out therewell this is it! This book is fun, interesting and to the point. It shows you right away how to begin creating an easily accessible memory of the Faith. And it can be applied to anything you need to memorize!
