Moonwalking with Einstein: The Art and Science of Remembering Everything - Joshua Foer Some of the concepts about memory I already learned from Psych 101 and pamphlets on how to study better and improve your memory. The narrative voice was easy to listen to but not engaging enough in the long haul. The attempt to characterize the little quirks of the other people in the book doesn't leave a lasting impression. Props to the year(s?) of self-experimentation, but I came away with little that was new.
