... 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 ... 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 ... yet does not sacrifice clarity.
