Moonwalking with Einstein (English) (Hardcover) Price: Rs.1833

Foer's unlikely journey from chronically forgetful science journalist to U.S. Memory Champion frames a revelatory exploration of the vast, hidden impact of memory on every aspect of our lives.

On average, people squander forty days annually compensating for things they've forgotten. Joshua Foer used to be one of those people. But after a year of memory training, he found himself in the finals of the U.S. Memory Championship. Even more important, Foer found a vital truth we too often forget: In every way that matters, we are the sum of our memories.

Moonwalking with Einstein draws on cutting-edge research, a surprising cultural history of memory, and venerable tricks of the mentalist's trade to transform our understanding of human remembering. Under the tutelage of top "mental athletes," he learns ancient techniques once employed by Cicero to memorize his speeches and by Medieval scholars to memorize entire books. Using methods that have been largely forgotten, Foer discovers that we can all dramatically improve our memories.

Immersing himself obsessively in a quirky subculture of competitive memorizers, Foer learns to apply techniques that call on imagination as much as determination-showing that memorization can be anything but rote. From the PAO system, which converts numbers into lurid images, to the memory palace, in which memories are stored in the rooms of imaginary structures, Foer's experience shows that the World Memory Championships are less a test of memory than of perseverance and creativity.

Foer takes his inquiry well beyond the arena of mental athletes-across the country and deep into his own mind. In San Diego, he meets an affable old man with one of the most severe case of amnesia on record, where he learns that memory is at once more elusive and more reliable than we might think. In Salt Lake City, he swaps secrets with a savant who claims to have memorized more than nine thousand books. At a high school in the South Bronx, he finds a history teacher using twenty- five-hundred-year-old memory techniques to give his students an edge in the state Regents exam.

At a time when electronic devices have all but rendered our individual memories obsolete, Foer's bid to resurrect the forgotten art of remembering becomes an urgent quest. Moonwalking with Einstein brings Joshua Foer to the apex of the U.S. Memory Championship and readers to a profound appreciation of a gift we all possess but that too often slips our minds.

In Epic Mahabharata, even Hanuman was not aware of his own power.Jambwant helped him to realise it.
Same situation happens with every human somewhere,somehow where he need a coach,a friend,relative or someone who can help him to unleash his own our real power.

Same happens with Joshua,when he had been to US memory championship for his work(reporting).Initially he thought that the participants were one of the few gems or lucky ones who had some different power or powerful brain but his perception was changed when he himself started learning those techniques after being offered by Master like Buzon & others.He learned the techniques & he came to same place next year & he won.He also became the part of the elite memory champions club.

This is not only a book of his success but also an example of the great Human Power.The power which is there within us,which just need a push and right guidance to nurture.

he showed us that a common man also can change his life by proper dedication & passion.Nothing is impossible.

I was so inspired by the book that after reading this book i dropped an email to Joshua asking where to start.I found him very generous.He replied me with few link from where i can start learning those techniques.

Stumbled upon the techniques

This is not a book, where one can find some memory techniques to use in real world, rather this is a book, which provides an overview of all ( mostly, I think ) memory techniques available in this world. Author done a good job, reviewing the history of memory. Each and every page contains an interesting fact that will keep us, move on till to the end.

Joshua Foer. We need to appreciate him for his dedication and his journey from memory event news writer to memory event champ, which he achieved in a year of time. His writing style in this book, produces a visual story telling feel to the re...

inspiring

yes we do get to know about how to sharpen our memory but more than thet you get the lesson that one can achieve anything if he wants...its the journey of a jounalist from a having a normal memory like us to winning a memory championship. this book is about the methods he learnt during this journey. memorising is not considered good....i mean relative to understanding the data u have to learn but by the end of this book ur view will change.

Awesome language used in the book

This would be the first book i would recommend for anyone willing to get a book on the subject.
Reason :- You can choose from a variety of ways/ideas to help increasing your memory and shows what a common person not affliated to this field, if tries can do.

Great book

Very interesting book. It's not a self-help book or a step by step guide to improving your memory, but gives a fascinating insight into how our memory works.

Beautiful Journey

I never knew what the book was about. But reading it was a wonderful experience. Those who want to explore what one's memory is capable of, should seriously consider taking this journey. Though it is not a self help guide, but it surely makes you ponder about your own memory power. (View complete review)
