Thank you Harmony Publishing for sending me a digital copy of this book for review.
Remember is a nonfiction book about the science of memory and why we forget. If you are like me and you wonder if you are losing it or just getting older, this book may put your mind at ease. It is short and to the point but with the humour and clear concise writing I love in Lisa Genova’s novels as well. She has some funny and relatable examples of how her memory fails her at times too.
I chose this book thinking it was a novel like Ms. Genova’s other books that I had read. I was a little disappointed to find that it was a book about memory but I was also intrigued. I’m glad I did read it and it turned out to be quite a quick read. There was nothing dry or boring about it.
This book explores how our memory works. The essence of it is to learn how we make memories and how we forget them. It isn’t overly scientific and is punctuated by stories an examples from Ms. Genova’s life. It makes a manuscript that could be very text book much more interesting which keeping it educational.
I came into this book knowing I liked the subject of memory and knowing a fair amount about it from university. I left absolutely fascinated and enthusiastic and have decided as a result of my initial knowledge and interest + the revelation that this book gave me that I should pursue memory research for my dissertation. Excellently written, covers a lot of bases and easy to understand even for those with no background. Highly recommend !
This is an excellent user friendly book designed to not only provide the why but also give handy helpful advice about our memories. Written in a positive mode with not too many unknown words, I highly recommend this book to anyone interested in Remembering well.
