In this groundbreaking and important book, Dr.
Barry Gordon, one of the world's leading authorities on memory, and Lisa
Berger offer a bold new synthesis of the two essential components of the
human mind: intelligence and memory. Gordon and Berger argue that "intelligent
memory" is the key to our ability to solve problems, learn from
experience, associate, and innovate. As critical to the creation of works of
genius as it is to navigating the complexities of daily life, intelligent
memory is not an innate gift but a skill that we can learn, hone, and
actually improve with age-no matter how old or absentminded we might be.
