From Paul:
I'm trying to find the book/books that explain this system? I have one small book that explains the very beginning of the system, but covers only about 10 to 20%. I'v tried several book sellers and have had no luck.

From Steven D. Edmonds:
I once heard about a manual counting method which when learned at an early age allowed one to be able to perform large calculations manually. I believe that name of the method (phonetically) was "chisenbok".
