"Provides the reader with a sound and thorough grounding in current theoretical memory frameworks and the methodologies and empirical findings on which they are based . . . useful for advanced undergraduates, beginning graduate students, healthcare professionals such as physicians, and other professionals who may have relevant work-related interests, such as lawyers and social workers.

"An epic tome . . . It is safe to say the editors and contributors have succeeded in producing a highly interesting book, remarkable in its breadth and thoroughness. As readers and fellow researchers, we can feel ourselves fortunate that such a diverse and interesting field has been treated so well." --Psychological Reports
"Over 60 authors constitute a Who's Who in the field of memory, virtually guaranteeing that the reports are state of the art. Even specialists will benefit from the coverage of subjects in which they have expertise . . . there is no comprehensive, advanced textbook of memory currently on the market nor has there ever been one since the middle 1970s. The reason is simple: no one could possibly write one, certainly not one with the scope and level of information present in the OHM. This volume, then, fills a gap that has needed filling for years. For now, the OHM is the gold standard and all memory professionals are in debt of the editors and authors for its existence."--Canadian Psychology
"Summarizes the research findings over the past decades that comprise the new science of memory . . . Contributors set out the various theories and the evidence they are based on and explore the consequences for professionals in law, engineering, and clinical medicine." --SciTech Book News
"". . . will be the standard source book in the field for years to come." --Tim Shallice, University College London
"The most important book on the subject ever published." --Michael S. Gazzaniga, Dartmouth University
