While perusing the New York Times this morning, I found an excellent book review of Joshua Foer's (brother of Jonathan Safran Foer) latest: a reflection on our collective loss of memory.
Foer's "Moonwalking with Einstein" stems from a 2006 article he wrote for Slate.com. According to NYT, in this book Foer like Malcolm Gladwell makes scientific concepts tangible and easy to read, which I definitely believe.
With his smart, but conversational tone and powerful storytelling I can only imagine this is going to be another hit.
