I don't know about the book, but the one I used for gross was:

Oh- Olfactory
Oh- Optic
Oh- Occulomotor
To - Trochlear
Touch- Trigeminal
And- Abducens
Feel- Facial
Virgin- Vestibulocochlear
Girls- Glossopharyngeal
Vaginas- Vagus
And- Accessory
Hymens- Hypoglossal

And for Which are Sensory (s), Motor (m) or both (b)

Some- I
Say- II
Money- III
Matters- IV
But- V
My- VI
Brother- VII
Says- VIII
Big- IX
Boobs- X
Matter- XI
More- XII

I haven't read the book but there are a few; two of which I remember:

the clean one: On old Olympus towering top a Finn and German viewed some hops.

the other one from back in the day when women were "girls": Oh, oh, oh, to touch and feel a girl's vagina, so heavenly.

One that I've been using this semester for anatomy...

Oh
Oh
Oh
To
Touch
And
Feel
Vagina.
Good
Vagina
Smells
Hot.

I guess mines is a tad bit different though as the way we had to remember cranial nerves was that 11 was Spinal accessory and not just accessory.

I am in the process of finishing Hot Lights, Cold Steel and the acronym is "Oh, Oh, Oh, To Touch And Feel A Girl's Vagina, Ah, Heaven." It's a good book...I really liked Intern and Complications as well

My personal favorite mnemonics were for the carpals:
Some Lovers Try Positions That They Can't Handle
(or as my dad told me: New Lovers Try Positions That They Can't Handle)
He trained when the scaphoid was still called the navicular.

And facial nerve branches
Two Zombies Buggered My Cat
-or-
To Zanzibar By Motor Car

I thought pissing off feminists was the point.

Otherwise, wouldn't we just go with Olympus?

at my school, you will be burned at the stake if you insult a feminist. literally. you quickly learn to shy away from anything that could possibly insult anybody...especially feminists.
