"...a wonderful textbook for advanced undergraduate and graduate courses. This long-overdue, accessible summary of the main findings of a fast-evolving field is likely to influence students of memory for years to come. However, this insightful book is much more than a textbook; the structure and contents go well beyond a collection of didactic essays on the most influential cognitive neuroscience studies of memory. Instead, it is a highly personal and compelling narrative that reflects both the author's command of cognitive neuroscience and his unique perspective on its history and current directions. The book is an impressive combination of scholarship and accessibility. The author's elegant pen and mastery of the subject does justice to complex ideas, despite their torturous historical precedents, yet does not sacrifice clarity. This is the kind of textbook that encourages the reader to think about key issues and ideas."--Nature Neuroscience
