Cuarenta dias. Este es el tiempo que perdemos de media cada ano por culpa de lo que olvidamos. A Joshua Foer le sucedia exactamente esto, pero despues de entrenar durante un anio, gano el campeonato de memoria de Estados Unidos, un concurso en el que participan personas capaces de realizar hazanias increibles, como memorizar 1.528 numeros aleatorios en una hora. Este es el punto de partida de este libro, que demuestra que la memoria es un don que poseemos todos, aunque a menudo ignoremos nuestro potencial. Foer rastrea la historia de las tecnicas mnemotecnicas desde la antigua grecia hasta nuestros dias; entrevista a neurocientificos, amnesicos, filosofos y jugadores de ajedrez, y se somete a un escaner cerebral para fotografiar su memoria. Gracias a todo ello, nos revela como mejorar de forma impresionante nuestra capacidad de recordar, y responde a preguntas sorprendentes, como que relacion existe entre memoria e inteligencia y que significa olvidar. Los desafios de la memoria se ha convertido en el libro revelacion de no ficcion del ano en Estados Unidos e Inglaterra: ha permanecido meses en la lista de mas vendidos de The New York Times, Amazon lo ha seleccionado entre los mejores libros del 2011 y esta ya en vias de publicacion en mas de treinta paises. En unos tiempos en los que la tecnologia amenaza con desbancar nuestro cerebro, el libro de Joshua Foer es un imprescindible descubrimiento de nuestro talento.

From the Back Cover:

The blockbuster phenomenon that charts an amazing journey of the mind while revolutionizing our concept of memory.

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.
