Publisher's Summary

Memory is tricky, to say the least. Here, unpack the vital role that memories - even inaccurate memories - play in critical thinking. Some of the many topics you’ll explore: how memory recall works; the roots of source amnesia; the inverse relationship between confidence and accuracy in a memory; and how memories can even be manufactured.

A good snippet from the whole.

This is only a half-hour selection from something else, so I can only judge it with that knowledge. It presents a short introduction to the key idea and gives some compelling examples, along with introducing us to some terminology to get you started.

But in the end, this is just the tip of the iceberg. Also, it’s fair to remember that these are lectures, and it certainly comes across as such. There are some lecturers you might like more than others—it all depends on the person. For my tastes, this was fairly lukewarm, but not uninteresting. 3/5 seems appropriate.
