    "Robert L. Greene has written a distinctive book about human memory. I know of nothing else quite like it....In my opinion, this book is a real winner. Certainly, psychologists studying human learning and memory will want to read it, and I suspect that it will be widely read by cognitive psychologists and often used as a textbook too. I can also recommend it for those outside cognitive psychology....In conclusion, Greene has produced a unique book about human memory. I think it is a book that researchers in this field will definitely want to own, that cognitive psychologists will want to read, and from which psychologists in many other areas could profit."
