“Highly entertaining.” —Adam Gopnik, The New Yorker
“Funny, curious, erudite, and full of useful details about ancient techniques of training memory.” —The Boston Globe
The blockbuster phenomenon that charts an amazing journey of the mind while revolutionizing our concept of memory
An instant bestseller that is poised to become a classic, Moonwalking with Einstein recounts Joshua Foer's yearlong quest to improve his memory under the tutelage of top "mental athletes." He draws on cutting-edge research, a surprising cultural history of remembering, and venerable tricks of the mentalist's trade to transform our understanding of human memory. From the United States Memory Championship to deep within the author's own mind, this is an electrifying work of journalism that reminds us that, in every way that matters, we are the sum of our memories.
Moonwalking with Einstein (unabridged )
I don't usually go to the trouble of writing reviews, but I'm making an exception. Wonderful, well told story. Worth the money and time.
Firts book review for me too. Its an amazing concept. I thought it was just going to be a book that would help me memorize stuff. Its far deeper than that training. Its about humans at the start and where we might end up. Its tough to take a break. Great read and the writing is incredible. Great job Josh!
