Think of a Link - Remember Absolutely Everything product reviews

Hundreds of loopy links an bonkers tips to help you remember anything and everything! Got your own links? Why not submit them to Thinkalink.co.uk and maybe they'll end up in the next book

Launched in May '08, Thinkalink.co.uk is a fun and easy way to remember things employing the underused learning-tool, 'linking'. The site is a meeting-place, online, to learn any fact you care to mention whether it be the spelling of Diarrhoea or what the jaw bone is called. For example: The capital of Brazil is Brasilia ... Because they're brasiliant at football; Russia is the world's biggest country ... If you Russia lot, you'll get there first.

People submit 'links' to the site which the public then rate with a mark out of 10 with the most popular links ending up in the book. It's like Wikipedia with a link to remember the fact. Many of the 'links' are aided by a 'bonkers' cartoon by Clive Goddard as a lot of people are visual learners. Andy is busy touring the UK presenting to children of all ages from 4 to 18! His spelling technique 'Letter Linking' has been called 'Groundbreaking' by the Dyslexia Association.

I have got to say, this book was very useful! I usually have trouble remembering things, even things that happened a few minutes ago, but this book has now taught me a very useful technique: LINKING! The links that this book contained were very useful, I can now say the year that the Titanic sank off the top of my mind: 1912! I found that the book was a little slow at first, but then things got more and more exciting!

I have some times where I'm bad at spelling, but now this book has taught me how to find things to refer the hard-to-spell parts of a word. The cover was good, it was nice and simple, unlike some of those other bright book covers which are crammed with so much artwork that you get put off slightly. I liked the way that the colours went well with each other; they were easy to look at without hurting your eyes slightly.

I think that this book is good for any kids in the age group of 6-13 years, and this is because the links and techniques are fairly simple. I think that the kids will get a blast out of reading this book. I know I did!
