What the Critics Say

“Bell and Gemmell outline the tests they've run since 2001, scanning and then cataloguing for retrieval a mass of personal data (documents, photographs, books and articles, web pages visited, instant messages, telephone calls) and wearing miniature cameras that sense light shifts and take automatic photographs. Readers will be wondering about the consequences of "recalling everything you once knew" long after they put down this fascinating text, of particular interest to techies, but clearly written for general readers." (Publishers Weekly)

    "The future is almost here"

    I recommend this book to all gadget junkies, closet techies and organization adicts.

    As I ran today listening to Total Recall on my smartphone with internet access, a camera, my planner and live links to facebook, twitter and linkedin, I ralized how close we already are to that technology.

    If you want to stay anywhere near the cutting edge of technology or business or even life. This book is a must read.

    "Plenty of Food for Thought"

    When I decided to read this book I was looking for information that I did not find within it. The title "Total Recall" I had thought would bring forth information obout how in the future perhaps the average human could have recall similar to that of the famous savant Kim Peek. The book was not about that at all. If I had known who Gordon Bell was before starting this read I would have known that he would be speaking of recall with the use of the various electronic systems available,and what will in the near future come about. Being far from a Nerd the subject matter was foreiign to me. This is why I rated it only a three star. Once into the book I found it most interesting and worth while.

    "Review of the first 3 chapters: Waste of time."

    I'll be honest. I couldn't take more than the first few chapters. This seems to be a senior citizen with too much time & money predicting the recent past for a bunch of other senior citizens who are just now discovering how handy this "email" stuff is. If you know how to use a PC & have a Twitter or Facebook account, you probably already know more about e-memory than the author does. I'm sorry to be disrespectful but I'm tired of people like this wasting my time & money. Teach me something new or get out of the way.
