Quick!  Name the planets in the solar system!  Not so easy, is it?  All the facts and scraps of knowledge we’ve learned throughout our education can be forgotten over time, and are often impossible to recall when we need them most (i.e., an intense game of Trivial Pursuit!).  But with You Must Remember This, all those facts and trivia will come flooding back, for good.  From the beloved master of the color spectrum “Roy G. Biv”, to easy tips to help learn the basics of any language, You Must Remember This is the perfect addition to anyone’s book shelf.  It includes hundreds of handy mnemonics to help you remember a wealth of information:
 
The four oceans of the world:
I Am A Person
 
The presidential heads carved on Mount Rushmore:
We Just Like Rushmore
 
And of course, those planets (sans Pluto):
My Very Educated Mother Just Served Us Noodles
 
Whether you want to remember fact, poems, or speeches, or just learn how to remember daily errands without being so dependent on lists, this book is for you. Discover techniques used by memory experts, how actors learn their lines, and how your brain works to store memories.  Both an invaluable collection of memory tricks and a fascinating look at the workings of our memory, You Must Remember This is the perfect resource to ensure that you'll never be short of memory again!
