    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.

    Story

    In Moonwalking with Einstein, Joshua Foer mixes first-person investigative
    journalism, succinct history lessons and good all-around story telling in his effort to
    unravel the art of memory, which culminates in Foer’s unlikely hunt to be a memory
    champion. Listening to the audiobook, you will by delighted by Mike Chamberlain’s
    virtuoso narration.

    He brings to life the history of memory, mnemonic techniques,
    the latest scientific research on the brain, and the unforgettable stories of ‘S’, the
    man with the best memory in the world, and his foil “E.P.” I’ve listened to a lot of
    audiobooks in my time at Audible and few narrators compare to Chamberlain.

    After listening to this book, I was so impressed by his narration that I listened
    to several of his other titles including Why We Get Fat by Gary Taubes and The
    Power of Habit by Charles Duhigg.
