Turns out that when an atom of Cesium is bombarded with energy is starts vibrating / ticking and every such 9129631770 ticks counts as a second. Hence the name atomic clock. Now in order to remember that number I just go: button push meets cow cozy (actually thinking of a button with push written on it talking to a happy cow). Absolutely brilliant.

This was my first memory improvement book and I loved the techniques mentioned in here. Although extremely impressed, I know I have to keep working on these techniques for a long time to get comfortable with them. Will start recommending this book to a few people who might find it interesting.

A exceptional book. Though the method here is nothing more than a clever mnemonic, it works by forcing you to retain information long enough for it to become part of your "true" memory. The applications for this book are endless, and everyone from businessmen and women, to waiters, students, and athletes should read this book. ( )
