Product description

Review

Illuminating and instructive * The Tablet * Shaw's debut book is a spryly paced, fun, sometimes frightening exploration of how we remember - and why everyone remembers things that never truly happened ... Her book is equal parts breezy guide through the recent lessons we've learned about memory, and a loving tribute to the sometimes eccentric researchers who toiled away in the laboratory to uncover them ... Shaw's quirky charm enlivens the book throughout. * Pacific Standard * Truly fascinating. -- Steve Wright, BBC Radio 2
