Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Both a compassionate biography and a lucid account of the advances in neuroscience made possible through one man’s personal tragedy.” Kirkus Reviews
“The best way to understand memory is to witness the ways it can disassemble. In this remarkable book, Suzanne Corkin gifts us with a rare insider’s view, revealing how a man who could not remember his immediate past so profoundly influenced science’s future.” David Eagleman, New York Times bestselling author of Incognito: The Secret Lives of the Brain
“A fascinating account of perhaps the most important case study in the history of neuroscience, rich with implications for our understanding of the brain, our experience, and what it means to be human.” Steven Pinker, author How the Mind Works
