    "I liked this but it was silly. It's mostly a collection of lifehacks that've been avaliable on the internet for years and years. So, you're mostly paying for the convenience of not having to google "Lifehackr learning". Given that it's only 5 dollars as of writing, well, that's not terrible. "

    "If you have trouble remembering, this book should definitely be on your must read list. It helped me so much. The memory device that you learn in this book is a great tool that I feel that everyone would benefit from. This book not only helps people like me, (who has trouble remembering everything), it also helps other people that just want to learn a new device to remember things differently. I would recommend this book to anyone who is interested in learning how memory works and how to control your memory for use in a different way. "

    "I've always thought I had a decent memory. Not the best by any means, but nothing to be ashamed of. When someone recommended this book, I thought the concept of improving memory was somewhat interesting, but wouldn't do much for me. I was completely wrong. The information laid out in the book is simple and easy to understand and after just one day, I was able to recall the examples laid out in the book, namely the works of Shakespeare and Dickens, with no problems. I work in a somewhat (okay, very) dry technical field and am always trying to expand my own knowledge to move up. I've already applied it to some of my current material and can already see the results!"

    "The mobile app looks good, like the design and I still haven't found the perfect solution for quick sharing of work between laptop and phone (without sign-in, pauses and having to select files over and over) Unfortunately there's no Mac version so as it stands it's no good to me. I'll consider it for sure if they develop an OSX version."

Rather than just play recordings, Earworm keeps auditory study sessions interactive by using simple voice commands to navigate a study session, such as repeating a card or marking an answer correct or incorrect."

    "Weird. I like the line reading bits and the ability to listen back to yourself. But, I'm not sure. Most actors use techniques developed decades ago and iterated on carefully every generation. I liked using this app, but I don't feel that it's really more effective than just using those techniques I've already known. It's okay, I guess, if you don't have connections with other actors."
