KIRKUS REVIEW

Remember me? I'm Harry, and you can remember my name if you think of ""hairy."" (When we think of hairy we never think of Harry.) Harry Lorayne = law rain. We had been trying to think up our own mnemonic device but we only got as far as ain like in inane. And if you want to take it further, ""mentally connect law rain with a bull and you've got it."" By the horns. ""You might visualize a gigantic bull in a downpour (rain) or judges' gavels, (law)."" There are other helps from rules (try to spell the name or associate: Aarons = hair rinse) but we quit on that one; or make some remark about it; or use it during your first conversation with the person in question and when you leave. Instead of saying Hey Mac. Actually we don't need any intellectual isometric to help us remember Harry Lorayne and his school of applied remembering and his TV shows and his Memory Book. That's the one we really want to forget since we bad-mouthed it and it did so stupendously well (so will this)--""the most astonishing long-run non-fiction success of its time."" Ever since we quickly learned to forget our own name which Lorayne says is alas.
