From Library Journal:

Can you memorize multiple decks of cards, poetry you've never seen before, and random numbers in short periods of time? These are some of the requirements of the U.S. Memory Championship. With no previous training and no special abilities, author Foer (joshuafoer.com) challenges himself to prepare for this mental feat within a period of one year, during the course of which he is tutored and guided by others who have participated in the event. Here, he documents his experience while exploring ancient and modern techniques for remembering and the many facets of memory. Narrator Mike Chamberlain (mikechamberlainvo.com) takes an earnest approach to the material, and his fascination with it is evident in his reading. Recommended for psychology and biography collections as well as collections covering the fantastic and slightly bizarre. [The Penguin Pr. hc, an LJ Best Seller, was previewed in Prepub Exploded, Book-Smack! 10/7/10.]-J. Sara Paulk, Wythe--Grayson Regional Lib., Independence, VA (c) Copyright 2011.
