Description
Memory makes us human; no other animal carries in its brain so many memories of such complexity, nor so regularly revisits those memories for happiness, safety, and the accomplishment of elaborate tasks. From cave drawings to oral histories, libraries to the internet, this sweeping scientific history chronicles how humans have relentlessly pursued new ways to preserve and manage memory, both within the human brain and through a series of inventions external to it. Technology writer Michael Malone illuminates turning points that have not only changed our relationship to memory, but have also changed the fabric of society.

"Premier technology writer Malone transforms our understanding of memory, human and artificial. After a vivid account of the evolution of the brain, he charts the developments that enabled our ancestors to acquire language, the first step in sharing memories and knowledge. With informed pleasure in the ingenuity involved, Malone deepens our appreciation for the development of increasingly sophisticated forms of memory preservation, organization, and communication while delving into the personalities and lives of both celebrated and forgotten technical visionaries."Booklist (starred review)
