Remember: The Science of Memory and the Art of Forgetting (by Lisa Genova) … informational read about the brain

To be honest, I was looking forward to another book in typical Lisa Genova style … a novel with a story line.  So I was a little sad when I started reading Remember.  Having worked for 38½ years in a Psychology department in a University, and specifically with neuroscience faculty and memory experts, the information provided was very interesting.

The brain is an amazing thing and all of the ways it works … remembering, forgetting, tasting, seeing, hearing, touching, the sense of pain, pleasure, stress, joy, etc.  What an awesome job our brains do and the ability it has is unbelievable.  The recommendations for how to keep your brain active and decrease the likelihood of dementia are very useful.

Thank you to NetGalley and Harmony Publishers for my advanced review copy.  All opinions and thoughts are my own.
