Moonwalking with Einstein

Joshua Foer


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.

My opinion

This was a interesting and well written review of memory technics and journalistic journey in the world of mental athletes.

For who?

Anyone interested to know how those people who can remember 1000 decimals of Pi do it.
