Somewhere along the way, I decided to review books on how we watch. I think it started as a selfish desire to kill two birds with one stone: maintain chapter-by-chapter notes on interesting reads while posting relevant content (this started as a blog assignment for a class; hence the latter). But based on analytics and search results, it seems my reviews are at least somewhat helpful. I have a sneaking suspicion that the majority of my audience is composed of students wanting to get out of reading assignments. Ah, the irony.
I thought it’d be helpful to group my general reviews and short links in one place. So here you go.
“Moonwalking with Einstein: The Art and Science of Remembering Everything” by Joshua Foer
