Can't Remember What I Forgot: The Good News from the Front Lines of Memory Research - Sue Halpern I'm interested in the topic and found much of this interesting.

Unfortunately, this was not a very good book for explaining to a non-science person the research she discusses - although this appears to be billed as a book of general interest, the discussion of the various scientific principles, studies, etc., were not very well explained.

The second problem was that there was no overall picture - chapter after chapter discussed various scientific theories and studies working on those theories, but I didn't wind up with any sort of overall picture of what is actually the current state of affairs - and I didn't wind up with any feeling that I had been told any "good news" - unless it's just that lots of organizations are doing lots of studies.
