Book: Moonwalking with Einstein: The Art and Science of Remembering Everything

Foer learns the almost-lost art of the memory palace and meets the small group of nutballs that are keeping it alive on the international memory circuit. With bonus material on the sciences of memory, forgetting, autism, savantism, and the nature of expertise. Highly recommended.

  1. My memory palaces are currently memory 1BR’s with a roommate. However, it seems like a sensible goal to build up several reusable palaces. I have been most impressed by the technique of associating any piece of information with an intense image, leading to a gut feeling that a memory must be correct and cannot possibly be otherwise.
