Are you increasingly beset by 'tip-of-the-tongue' moments? Do you forget names, dates and other vital information? Are you concerned that your memory is getting worse as you get older? Forgetting is a natural part of how the brain functions, but for some people it can still be a maddening or distressing experience. In this book, Dr Hilary Jones and Rob Eastaway explain how memory works, why it sometimes goes wrong, and what practical steps you can take to build a stronger memory - debunking some popular myths along the way. Drawing on strategies and experiences of real people in their everyday lives, and using gentle humour, this book takes a refreshing look at memory, how to live with its defects and how to improve it.
