Of the five books I finished over vacation, the one that impressed me the most – and that is probably of broadest interest – is Moonwalking with Einstein: The Art and Science of Remembering Everything, by science writer Joshua Foer. This is an absolutely phenomenal book that looks at memory and techniques for dramatically improving memory. Foer actually mastered these techniques, which led him to the finals of the U.S. Memory Championship. His book gives fascinating insights into how the mind works.

It's always hard to choose a favourite book, but if I had a gun to my head, I'd probably choose Moonwalking with Einstein in Non-Business (but still non-fiction) category. I like [this book] because of fantastic story-telling quality and insights relevant to what I do in business and in life more generally.

There’s a book Moonwalking With Einstein by Joshua Foer, amazing book about how memory works in general, really changed the way I kind of think about.
An instant bestseller that is poised to become a classic, Moonwalking with Einstein recounts Joshua Foer's yearlong quest to improve his memory under the tutelage of top mental athletes. He draws on cutting-edge research, a surprising cultural history of remembering, and venerable tricks of the mentalist's trade to transform our understanding of human memory. From the United States Memory Championship to deep within the author's own mind, this is an electrifying work of journalism that reminds us that, in every way that matters, we are the sum of our memories.
