Reviews

‘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, Johnstone Professor of Psychology, Harvard University, author of How the Mind Works*

‘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, author of The Brain*

‘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, Edgar Pierce Professor of Psychology, Harvard University, 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, PhD, professor of neurology, Harvard Medical School, co-author of The Healing Self*

‘Neuroscientist and novelist Genova (Still Alice) delivers 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*

‘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 Reviews*

'An engaging and easy to read non-fiction book that will appeal to all readers, this is a truly fascinating exploration of what it means to be human and how to harness the power of the brain to thrive.'
*Great Escape Books*

‘This user-friendly account is very informative and should encourage and comfort concerned readers.’
*Booklist*
