I recently happened to stumble across a book by Dominic O'Brien on memory techniques while browsing Kindle and bought it. Until then I didn't properly understand Method of Loci, but trudged through the exercises and realised how much mnemonics, the link method, the journey method aided my memory. The book opens by embarrassing the untrained reader with memory tests, and then slowly introduced methods that allowed me to achieve a perfect score on them.
I practice the Major System and am currently learning a PAO using a variation on the Journey method that I created for long term mental filing without "ghosting".
