Product description

Review

"Truly fascinating." (Steve Wright, BBC Radio 2)

"Shaw’s debut book is a spryly paced, fun, sometimes frightening exploration of how we remember – and why everyone remembers things that never truly happened … Her book is equal parts breezy guide through the recent lessons we’ve learned about memory, and a loving tribute to the sometimes eccentric researchers who toiled away in the laboratory to uncover them … Shaw's quirky charm enlivens the book throughout." (Pacific Standard)

"Illuminating and instructive" (The Tablet)

Book Description

A fascinating exploration of the fallibility of memory and how easily our brains can be misled.
