Hey, guys! So I've been wanting to wrap my head around the memory palace for quite a while now, since it's so popular with both real memorisers and fictional characters with remarkable memories but couldn't really find books that would be comprehensive enough.

I understand the general idea of having visual memories of some sort of place and depositing whatever you need to remember at each "point" of that place, but I'd like something with more details. Perhaps with variations where you make your own "palace" by imagining it and then putting memories in each room.

Any advice and suggestion would be greatly appreciated

I tried to learn some mnemonic techniques from this book (http://www.amazon.co.uk/Your-Memory-...+to+improve+it), however i didn't really persevere with it enough for it to be useful. Either way you only really need to be good at memorizing for GCSE / A Levels than it becomes a less useful skill.
