Description for The Memory Illusion: Remembering, Forgetting, and the Science of False Memory
"Truly fascinating." (Steve Wright, BBC Radio 2)
"Shaw’s debut book is a spryly paced, fun, sometimes frightening exploration of how we remember – and why everyone remembers things that never truly happened … Her book is equal parts breezy guide through the recent lessons we’ve learned about memory, and a loving tribute to the sometimes eccentric researchers who toiled away in the laboratory to uncover them … Shaw's quirky charm enlivens the book throughout." (Pacific Standard)
"Illuminating and instructive" (The Tablet)
A fascinating exploration of the fallibility of memory and how easily our brains can be misled.See all Description for The Memory Illusion: Remembering, Forgetting, and the Science of False Memory

Interesting topic people never think about.
The information is somewhat frightening and strongly suggests that no one should ever be alone without someone who can document their activities. This is so because if you are ever accused of a crime you cannot rely on a fair and just outcome which could be based on verbal items entered as evidence.
Also as a scientist familiar, I have some questions about the citations regarding neural timing that were mentioned in this book.
