by Joshua Foer


It's safe to say that author Joshua Foer has a good reputation for memory – he won the 2006 USA Memory Championship and set a new record for memorizing a deck of 52 cards in 1 minute and 40 seconds.

When he's not busy memorizing stuff, Foer works as a freelance writer, writing for The New York Times or The Washington Post. Foer also conducts TED Talks to teach people about the importance of feeding and training your memory. This book will teach how you can improve your memory to enhance your life and become the happiest, most productive person you could be.
