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

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This book centres around the author’s (half unbelievingly) progress to being the US memory champion. Along the way he various memory techniques and subjects – although this most definitely not a how to guide. He sees clearly that the ‘Memory Championship’ events are only an approximation of real life and that being able to memorise multiple packs of cards is of little practical use. For those who watched the C4 TV programme with Ed Cooke, it is amusing to hear more about him.
