Absorbing and accessible, this is a great explanation of the latest advances in the field of brain/mind issues. Eagleman uses the phrase "team of rivals" (coined by Doris Kearns Goodwin) to describe, for the scientifically ignorant, just what researchers think is going on! It is comforting to know there are still way more questions than answers, yet I felt newly enlightened. ~ Reviewed by Karen Frank

A terrifically fun read about a man who, while researching an article about the U.S. Memory Championships, decides to take up the challenge when a contestant tells him that even he could learn how to have an amazing memory. A year later, the author is a finalist in the competition himself. A humorous and enlightening look at memory from ancient times to the cutting edge research that is going on today. Highly recommended ~ Reviewed by Erik Barnum
