Assimilative Memory or, How to Attend and Never Forget   By:

Book cover

First Page:

TRANSCRIBER'S NOTE In this plain text version, small capitals have been rendered as ALL CAPS, bold using =equals signs= and italics usually using underscores . However, the original used italics to highlight certain letters within words where these were intended to help with remembering numbers and dates according to the "Analytic substitution" memory method. For legibility, these have been rendered using {c}u{rl}y {br}ac{k}e{ts}. Some of the numbered lists were originally wrapped together as a paragraph; for legibility some of these have been changed to separate lines. This applies particularly to the lists of questions: these blocks were originally placed like footnotes at the bottom of pages, but here have been moved to an appropriate break in the main text. Some obvious printer errors have been corrected, full details of which can be found in the HTML version of this eBook. The inconsistent hyphenation of several words, and inconsistent use of ise and ize spellings, has been left as in the original.
