Hi,

''He's written a book that I've forgotten the name of.''

The source: Practical English Usage (page 48)

I'd like to ask if we can omit 'that' in the above sentence or not.

Thanks.

    As your example is informal/colloquial, then, "Yes, you can."

    Normally, you would say ''He's written a book whose name I've forgotten.''
