A pioneering work on how to enhance and sharpen our minds at any age—from an internationally respected expert in memory research

In this groundbreaking and important book, Dr. Barry Gordon, one of the world's leading authorities on memory, and Lisa Berger offer a bold new synthesis of the two essential components of the human mind: intelligence and memory. Gordon and Berger argue that "intelligent memory" is the key to our ability to solve problems, learn from experience, associate, and innovate. As critical to the creation of works of genius as it is to navigating the complexities of daily life, intelligent memory is not an innate gift but a skill that we can learn, hone, and actually improve with age-no matter how old or absentminded we might be.

Gordon and Berger provide a concise, compelling overview of how intelligent memory functions in the brain as the "engine" for dynamic thought, enabling us to focus our attention, make connections, and store and retrieve information. Combining cutting-edge science with practical hands-on guidance and featuring daily exercises and self-administered tests, Intelligent Memory is an essential volume for readers of any age who want to sharpen and expand their intellectual powers.
