Reviews

"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 *
