Description

The unabridged, downloadable audiobook edition of Moonwalking with Einstein: The Art and Science of Remembering Everything, Joshua Foer's part-memoir, part-guide on mastering your memory. Read by Mike Chamberlain. 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 atheletes' to transform our understanding of human remembering. He learns the ancient methods used by Cicero and Medieval scholars.

He meets amnesiacs, neuroscientists and savants - including a man who claims to have memorized more than nine thousand books. In doing so, he reveals the hidden impact of memory on our lives, and shows how we can all dramatically improve our memories. At a time when electronic devices have all but rendered our individual memories obsolete, Foer's book is a quest to resurrect the gift we all possess, but that too often slips our minds.

Critiques

"A marvelous overview of one of the most essential aspects of what makes us human - our memory ... Witty and engaging." (Dan Ariely)
"Memory...makes us who we are...passionate and deeply engrossing ...The more we challenge ourselves, the greater our capacity. It's a fact that every teacher, parent and student would do well to learn. The lesson is unforgettable." ( Washington Post)
"Captivating ... Engaging ... Mr. Foer writes in these pages with fresh enthusiasm. His narrative is smart and funny." ( Michiko Kakutani New York Times)

The holy grail has been found

What did you love best about Moonwalking with Einstein?

A very well written book. Extremely useful and fascinating topic in an easy-to-digest format. I couldn't recommend more. I actually started applying the techniques I learned from this book in my medical studies and honestly feel like I've made enormous progress.

Interesting, informative stuff that happened.

Would you try another book from Joshua Foer and/or Mike Chamberlain?

This blog style book sprinkled with some science and facts is good pop intelligentia waffle and can be helpful to fill in the gaps of studying something like memory learning but I am not sure Joshua Foer has another book like this in him. Not sure if I would read any other book by him.

Would you listen to another book narrated by Mike Chamberlain?

Mike Chamberlain is easy to listen to but far from the best and I would not write home to mother about his style. Business like, pedestrian, american is the best way to describe his narration. His English accents are bad. Still he gave it a go and nothing stood out so bad to make you drop your iPod and run away with your ears bleeding. He's okay.

Do you think Moonwalking with Einstein needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

Perhaps Joshua should take the next step and learn a new skill for the brain like decision making, analitical thinking or learning a language in record time. Something to test the mechanics rather than just top up the grey matter. Would be interesting to see his take on exploring more about what the brain is capable.

Any additional comments?

I learned much from this book. I enjoyed it as light intelligentia entertainment. It will not make you a genius but clear up some of your self improvement wish list or at least help you remember it.

Disappointment

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

It's clear that the author has spent considerable time researching the history of techniques around memory and mentions countless aspects. But I'm now at hour 6 and all I've heard was history... One brief intro to the memory palace technique and explanations of mnemonics. I've even started listening to it on 1.5x speed... hope the final hours of the book brings actual useable content.

Did Moonwalking with Einstein inspire you to do anything?

Yes, to read other books on the subject of memory

Misleading title and category, interesting content

This is not really a book of self-help, nor on memory training. This is a story of the author's first-hand experience, which is well done.

Exceptional book. Full of hints for memorisers

Not the story itself worth listening, but full of hints and suggestions about how to become a better memoriser.

Unterhaltsam und lehrreich

Es ist kein Gedächtnis-Training, aber profund und sehr unterhaltsam. Man wird in die Welt der Mnemotic-Community eingeführt mit etwas kritischer Distanz und doch auch mit unverholener Sympathie. Sie kann durchaus anregen weitere Literatur zu lesen, die die Tricks der Gedächtnis-Künstler genauer ausführen.
Der Sprecher war für mich etwas gewöhnungsbedürftig, da ich eher welche mit Englischem oder Ostküsten Akzent bevorzuge, aber sie passte doch gut vom Alter und der Emphase zu dem Autor.
