Matt, with ALL due respect to Juan Tamariz (and yes he's one of my heroes too), do not expect too much from the Tamariz books on the memorized deck. I've read these in Spanish right after they were released (FISM 2000) and while I *cannot* say that the material described in them is disappointing, I can't say there is anything really earthshaking, either. I actually found the best parts in the books were the "how to memorize a deck" part (he gives a wealth of info and methods) and, above all, the bibliography at the end of Vol. 2 that is one of the most exhaustive studies on the topic, complete with comments from Tamariz, etc.
But then again...we can't blame Tamariz for having kept the best stuff, which simply isn't in the book- and anyone who saw him at FISM 2000 (or anywhere else) won't contradict me, I think.
