Moonwalking with Einstein, Joshua Foer

I read this too quickly and now I remember little about it; if only I had constructed a memory palace to put some of its passages in! Foer's immersive attempt at becoming a memory champion is an absorbing read, and offers an interesting take on how we get to remembering things; it's a good counterpoint to the Proust I've been reading, which expounds on memory and its trappings in a much freer flowing, more discursive way.
