In my Listmania for this subject,
This review is from: In Search of Memory: The Emergence of a New Science of Mind (Paperback)
This one is well worth your time if you are interested in the science behind memory. Detailing his story intertwined with the narrative of progressive discovery, its a sit down with a cup of tea book that isn't afraid to dig into quite some depth, albeit in places and briefly. Reading this also introduces you to how a scientist might really be thinking when he meanders his way along the road to the discoveries that we get on a platter at the end of it.
What I find fascinating about the whole subject is that a book such as this hands the intelligent reader a mans life work on a platter and makes it easily understood. The work in reality fills a number of rather sizable text books at the least not to mention innumerable papers etc.
If you've got a shelf on the brain at home that you read through, add this to it :).
