How useful would this method be for remembering spectators names (or indeed names in general)?

Thank you in advance

Danny, I don't think this particular method would be helpful in remembering names. This is more practical for remembering lists of items in sequence. I highly recommend Harry Lorayne's Memory Book to remember names and faces (amongst many other things). In all honesty, I'm pretty good at remembering people's names without resorting to any memory technique. Sometimes, all we have to do is just pay attention and make that extra effort in order to remember a name. It's really not that difficult. But if you're trying to memorize like 100 faces, then yeah, mnemonics are your answer for sure...

Wow. Not a new technique for sure. But new to me. I just spent about 2 hours and know Mnemonica both ways (card to number and number to card). Still need to work on my speed but the system freaking works. Currently using just 26 locations and find have 2 cards per location to be a sweet spot because you almost always need 2 objects to "tell a story" at each location.

Very, very impressed.

Does anyone know if the memory journey of the first 26 cards/positions of the new book is identical to the first 26 of the old one? I’m waiting for the new one (with all 52 positions) to get to me in the mail and wanted to know if I could begin studying by using the old one.

Yes I have the Aronson digital version and the first 26 are the same as in the new book.

Hi, I bought their latest book 'The Memory Arts' and have to say its an excellent buy if you want to learn stacks in everyway to remember them in all 52 positions, plus there is a grid Feinaigle system to link them all together, not only for cards memory but anything you would like to have in your memory palace, lists, phone no.s, even kings queens from history, not quite magic but great for studys too etc. (wish I had this info when I was at school)
All written in a straight forward way, its so easy to learn, within one hr of study I learnt the 52 locations and the Tamariz's and Aronson's stack within those locations, just need a little more practice to recall at speed.

Yes, the first 26 positions are the same but if you wish to use the whole 52, when you start using only the e-book version, ONLY assign 1 card to each position. In other words, you are just going to want to start with the first 26 cards as well.

The e-book actually teaches the entire stack using cards 1 and 2 in position 1 then cards 3 and 4 in position 2... The hardback teaches both stacks (Tamariz and Aronson) seperate using the 2 card per position like the e-books but goes on to teach BOTH STACKS together using one card from each stack in every position from 1 - 52.

Hope that helps explain the difference.

I know others might be exasperated discussing this, but since I'm a little slow and want to make sure, is it easy to say, memorize 1 card per position easily using just one stack without learning the other? Or is there more work involved to separate stacks and remove cards or positions?

Basically I just want to memorize Mnemonica utilizing 52 positions without doing more than simply going through what they give us to learn it (not having to subtract, ignore, etc, if that makes sense) and not getting fancy with 2 cards at each position, two stacks or one.

Yours is an easy one. Yes, it is possible to learn only one stack using all 52 positions and it is easier than learning both. I am actually learning Aronson only while using all 52 positions in the hardback (which I find much simpler than doubling up on the first 26 positions like "book A" taught). I may "eventually" try Tamariz later, but this is enough for now.

Hope that helps
