Moonwalking with Einstein

Joshua Foer
February 8, 2012

Moonwalking with Einstein recounts Joshua Foer's one-year quest to improve his memory under the tutelage of top "mental athletes." Cutting-edge research comes together with a cultural history of remembering and venerable tricks of the mentalist's trade to transform our understanding of human memory. Travelling from the United States Memory Championship to deep within his own mind, Foer presents an electrifying work of journalism that reminds us that we are truly the sum of our memories.
