"In a book that is as fascinating as it is authoritative,Larry Squire and Eric Kandel explain the insights andbreakthroughs that have illuminated the mysteriesof memory."Daniel L. Schacter, Harvard University"A masterly and enthralling synthesis."Torsten Wiesel, Rockefeller University"A lucid and engaging book by two grandmastersof the field."Samuel H. Barondes, UC San Francisco"Few areas of neuroscience are ready to boast of anunderstanding that spans from molecules to minds.Memory is ready, and Squire and Kandel, two of theleading researchers who got us there, take us on adelightful journey, explaining not just current factsbut also the often fascinating history behind the bigdiscoveries. I loved it and recommend this veryreadable and beautifully illustrated book to all whowant to know how memory works."Joseph LeDoux, New York University
