Reviews

"No one writes more brilliantly about the connections between the brain, the mind, and the heart. Remember is a beautiful, fascinating, and important book about the mysteries of human memory--what it is, how it works, and what happens when it is stolen from us. A scientific and literary treat that you will not soon forget."--Daniel Gilbert, Edgar Pierce Professor of Psychology, Harvard University, New YorkTimes bestselling author of Stumbling on Happiness

"In Remember, Lisa Genova provides easy-to-follow, no nonsense advice on how to maximize one of the greatest outputs of your brain--memory. But, more important, she also lets us know that while memory is a tremendous gift, the real you is much more than just what you can remember!"--Rudolph E. Tanzi, PhD, professor of neurology, Harvard Medical School, coauthor of The Healing Self

"As with her previous books, this is an engaging and edifying read."--Steven Pinker, Johnstone Professor of Psychology, Harvard University, author of How the Mind Works "Genova's plentiful anecdotes from her personal and professional lives make it easy for readers to relate, and her obvious expertise in memory and the brain results in a book that is more insightful than many others on the subject. Sharp writing and accessible storytelling make for a compelling read."--Kirkus Reviews "Brain science is deciphering the mysteries of memory, and no one is better positioned to tell the electrifying story than Dr. Genova, with her scientist's eye and poet's ear. A book you won't forget."--David Eagleman, neuroscientist, Stanford University, New York Times bestselling author "This user-friendly account is very informative and should encourage and comfort concerned readers."--Booklist "A solid primer on the way memory works and fails to work....Genova blends popular science and self-help, providing lay reader-friendly descriptions of the function of memory and sharing tips for better memory in a helpful appendix. . . . This accessible survey is an easy entry point for anyone wondering how and why they keep forgetting where they left their car keys."--Publishers Weekly
