Reviews

"Fascinating....[Halpern's] accomplishment is to have drawn out the myriad threads of these stories, connecting them when possible, to produce a panoramic portrait of an intricate and largely unknown world." --"New York Review of Books""Evincing a gift for perfect analogies and supple metaphors, mischievous humor, and righteous skepticism, Halpern is an exceptionally companionable and enlightening guide through the maze of memory maladies and the promising search for remedies."--Donna Seaman, "Booklist" (starred review)"A vivid, often amusing introduction to a science that touches us all."--"Publishers Weekly""Engrossing....High-quality science writing: an illuminating picture of investigators at work and a lucid explication of their findings."--"Kirkus""Educational, fabulously well written, and on a hot topic. Highly recommended for both public and academic libraries."-- Nancy Fontaine, Library Journal (starred review)"Like her fellow" New Yorker" writer, Malcolm Gladwell, Sue Halpern has the remarkable capacity-genius, actually-- to absorb large amounts of complex information and deliver them to the reader in a comprehensible, engaging, page-turning way. In "Can't Remember What I Forgot", she travels to the cutting-edge of medical and scientific research about memory and reports back with critical information for all of us now dealing with aging parents and with our own aging. Informative, beautifully written, and hard to put down, this is a book you have to remember not to forget to buy."--Julia Alvarez
