Read full description of the books:



Moonwalking med Einstein tar leseren med på en fascinerende reise gjennom minnets kulturhistorie, fra grekeren Cicero og hans teknikk for å memorere en tale og til middelalderens vitenskapsmenn, som utarbeidet metoder for å kunne memorere bøker i sin helhet. Ved å bruke metoder som i stor grad har blitt glemt, viser Foer oss at vi ved relativt enkle grep kan forbedre vår hukommelse i dramatisk grad. I en tid hvor de elektroniske hjelpemidler truer med helt å erstatte vår individuelle hukommelse, fremstår Foers forsøk på å revitalisere den glemte kunst å huske som et heroisk prosjekt. Moonwalking med Einstein bragte Joshua Foer til topps i U.S. Memory Championship, og i neste omgang leseren til å gjenoppdage og verdsette en gave vi alle har i vår besittelse, men som altfor ofte unnslipper vår bevissthet.
