            A fascinating exploration of the intricacies of how we remember, why we forget, and what we can do to protect our memories, from the Harvard-trained neuroscientist and bestselling author of Still Alice. Have you ever felt a crushing wave of panic when you can't for the life of yo...u remember the name of that actor in the movie you saw last week, or you walk into a room only to forget why you went there in the first place? If you're over forty, you're probably not laughing. You might even be worried that these lapses in memory could be an early sign of Alzheimer's or dementia. In reality, for the vast majority of us, these examples of forgetting are completely normal. Why? Because while memory is amazing, it is far from perfect. Our brains aren't designed to remember every name we hear, plan we make, or day we experience. Just because your memory sometimes fails doesn't mean it's broken or succumbing to disease. Forgetting is actually part of being human. In Remember, neuroscientist and acclaimed novelist Lisa Genova delves into how memories are made and how we retrieve them. You'll learn whether forgotten memories are temporarily inaccessible or erased forever and why some memories are built to exist for only a few seconds (like a passcode) while others can last a lifetime (your wedding day). You'll come to appreciate the clear distinction between normal forgetting (where you parked your car) and forgetting due to Alzheimer's (that you own a car). And you'll see how memory is profoundly impacted by meaning, emotion, sleep, stress, and context. Once you understand the language of memory and how it functions, its incredible strengths and maddening weaknesses, its natural vulnerabilities and potential superpowers, you can both vastly improve your ability to remember and feel less rattled when you inevitably forget. You can set educated expectations for your memory, and in doing so, create a better relationship with it. You don't have to fear it anymore. And that can be l

            An exhilarating account of how the co-evolution of psychology and culture shaped the Western mind. Perhaps you are WEIRD: raised in a society that is Western, Educated, Industrialized, Rich and Democratic. If so, you're psychologically peculiar. Unlike most of the world today, an...d most people who have ever lived, WEIRD people are highly individualistic, self-obsessed, control-oriented, nonconformist and analytical. They focus on themselves - their attributes, accomplishments and aspirations - over their relationships and social roles. How did WEIRD populations become so psychologically distinct? What role did these psychological differences play in the industrial revolution and the global expansion of European power during the last few centuries? And what does it mean for our sense of who we are individually and of the large-scale forces that drive humanity? Joseph Henrich, who coined this influential concept, explores these questions by drawing on cutting-edge research in anthropology, psychology, economics and evolutionary biology. He illuminates the origins and evolution of family structures, marriage and religion, and the profound impact they had. It was these changing institutions that gave rise to the WEIRD psychology that would co-evolve with impersonal markets, specialization of work and free competition - laying the foundations for the modern world. Provocative, engaging and surprising, The Weirdest People in the World will transform your understanding of human psychology.
