Moonwalking with Einstein: The Art and Science of Remembering Everything - Joshua Foer This was a fascinating book, delving into memory from many angles - I especially enjoyed the history and the science. All the work to compete successfully at the national level is documented, although this is a case study, not a self-help book. The interviews and profiles of other memory case studies and savants added immensely to the material. The nearly 9 page bibliography neatly wraps the bow. Well done!
