*A New York Times bestseller*

'Using her expertise as a neuroscientist and her gifts as a storyteller, Lisa Genova explains the nuances of human memory' - Steven Pinker, Johnstone Professor of Psychology, Harvard University, and bestselling author of How The Mind Works

'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 (New York Times bestselling author of Stumbling on Happiness)


Have you ever felt a crushing wave of panic when you can't for the life of you remember the name of that actor in the movie you saw last week, or you walk into a room only to forget why you went there in the first place? If you're over forty, you're probably not laughing. You might even be worried that these lapses in memory could be an early sign of Alzheimer's or dementia. In reality, for the vast majority of us, these examples of forgetting are completely normal. Why? Because while memory is amazing, it is far from perfect. Our brains aren't designed to remember every name we hear, plan we make or day we experience. Just because your memory sometimes fails doesn't mean it's broken or succumbing to disease. Forgetting is actually part of being human.

In Remember, neuroscientist and acclaimed novelist Lisa Genova delves into how memories are made and how we retrieve them. In explaining whether forgotten memories are temporarily inaccessible or erased forever and why some memories are built to exist for only a few seconds while others can last a lifetime, we're shown the clear distinction between normal forgetting (where you parked your car) and forgetting due to Alzheimer's (that you own a car). Remember shows us how to create a better relationship with our memory - so we no longer have to fear it any more, which can be life-changing.

 

Review

Using her expertise as a neuroscientist and her gifts as a storyteller, Genova explains the nuances of human memory. As with her previous books, this is an engaging and edifying read. -- Steven Pinker (author of HOW THE MIND WORKS)

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 (New York Times 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 (co-author of THE HEALING SELF)

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

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
