"Schacter's book is by far the best popular book on memory I have ever read. It will be very useful for anyone who wants to know more about both why memory works the way it does and why, sometimes, it doesn't work. This book would make an excellent adjunct text in any college course on memory. It is very well referenced so that the interested reader can find the original papers Schacter discusses."Schacter, Daniel L. is the author of 'Seven Sins of Memory How the Mind Forgets and Remembers', published 2002 under ISBN 9780618219193 and ISBN 0618219196.
