307 pp, large 8vo (9 1/2" H). "On average, people squander forty days annually compensating for things they've forgotten. Joshua Foer used to be one of those people. But after a year of memory training, he found himself in the finals of the U.S. Memory Championship. Even more important, he found a vital truth we too often forget: In every way that matters, we are the sum of our memories. (This book) draws on cutting-edge research, a surprising cultural history of memory, and venerable tricks of the mentalist's trade to transform our understanding of human remembering. Under the tutelage of top 'mental athletes', Foer learns ancient techniques once employed by Cicero to memorize his speeches and by medieval scholars to memorize entire books. Using methods that have been largely forgotten, he discovers that we can all dramatically improve our memories." Light wrinkling at bottom of spine. Dust jacket has minor wear and tiny tear at top of front flap-fold. 
Price: 15.00 USD
 
 
4 Le Naour, Jean-Yves. Translated By Penny Allen. THE LIVING UNKNOWN SOLDIER: A STORY OF GRIEF AND THE GREAT WAR.
New York Metropolitan Books 2004 0805075224 / 9780805075229 First American Edition Hard Cover Near Fine Near Fine 
233 pp, 8vo (8 1/2" H). B&w photographs. "In February 1918, a derelict soldier was discovered wandering the railway station in Lyon, France. With no memory of his name or his past, no identifying possessions, marks, or documents, the soldier - given the name Anthelme Mangin - was sent to an asylum for the insane. When, after the Great War ended, the authorities placed the soldier's image in advertisements to locate his family, hundreds of 'relatives' claimed him - as their father or son, husband or brother who had failed to return from the front. Marshalling a vast array of original material, from letters and newspaper articles to accounts of battlefield deaths, hospital reports, and police files, (the author) meticulously re-creates the long-forgotten story of the single soldier who came to stand for a lost generation. With humane sympathy and the skill of a novelist, he recounts the twenty-year court battles waged by the families competing to take the amnesiac soldier home. In the process, he portrays not just the fate of one individual but the rank and file's experience in the trenches, as well as an entire nation's inconsolable grief at the loss of more than one million of its men. Dramatic, taut, and powerfully relevant to our own times, this heartrending history depicts the pain and turmoil of a society that, without bodies to bury, is caught between holding on and letting go." Dust jacket has very minor rubbing.
