Zeotor,

Yes I think it is a variant of what you posted, or perhaps exactly the same.

For this part they write:

Two top midges flipped:

M'UM'UM'UUMUMUMUU

This sequence is so symmetrical and easy to remember that it is hard to forget after you learn it (I have read long time ago that Rubik himself found this sequence, not sure if it is true or not).

YES!! I remember that very clearly. It was one of my favorite sequences, so symmetrical and easy to remember. This was in 1981 that I was doing this actually, so 31 years ago, and I do remember this sequence pretty clearly. I can imagine myself 31 years ago flipping through these moves, it was such a clear and simple pattern, I liked it.

The book I read it in was a glossy color booklet, pages were standard 8.5 x 11 inch, fairly short book, maybe 12 pages.

This is basically the technique I used to use, I have to read through it all to see if it's 100% the same or not, but looks basically right. Leaving out one of the edges, twisting the corners, then finally solving the middle edges, this is how I used to do it.

I was 10 years old at the time and had solve times in mid 30 seconds to low 40s which I thought was good.

I'm going to review this and try to remember. Thanks for the link!
