“Kent Woodyard’s mnemonics are the most essential non-essential mnemonics in the history of language.” ―Christopher Monks, McSweeney’s Internet Tendency
“Thankfully, L.A.-based writer Woodyard has compiled a book of all the mnemonics you could ever hope to memorize, even if you don’t really want to.”
― Marielle Wakim, Los Angeles Magazine
