On average, people squander forty days annually trying to remember things they've forgotten. Joshua Foer used to be one of those people. But after a year of training, he found himself in the finals of the U.S. Memory Championship. He also discovered a truth we too often forget: In every way, we are the sum of our memories. In ''Moonwalking with Einstein'', Foer draws on cutting-edge research, the cultural history of memory and the techniques of 'mental athletes' to transform our understanding of human remembering. Foer's book is a quest to resurrect the gift we all possess, but that too often slips our minds.
