Moonwalking with Einstein: The Art and Science of Remembering Everything by Joshua Foer

In Moonwalking with Einstein, author Joshua Foer readily admits to being the type of person who not only constantly forgets where he's left his car keys, but sometimes his car too. After covering the 2005 U.S. Memory Championship, Foer accepted the challenge to learn the skills necessary for memorization, and actually won the next year's championship. He details the tricks and routines to improve memory, using visual cues to help the brain improve its memory recollection. He points out that memory does not necessarily equal intelligence, but that the sum of memories makes each of us an individual. Moonwalking with Einstein has received positive reviews with the New York Times saying, "Mr. Foer writes in these pages with fresh enthusiasm. His narrative is smart and funny and, like the work of Dr. Oliver Sacks, it's informed by a humanism that enables its author to place the mysteries of the brain within a larger philosophical and cultural context."
