Scott A. Small


Upbeat . . . Dr. Small is convincing on the value of forgetting (and also of sleep).”The Wall Street Journal

“Eye-opening . . . accessible with an easygoing prose.”Publishers Weekly

“In his clear-worded and compassionate book, Scott Small translates the current science of memory for the general reader and explains why the onset of forgetting may be benign or even helpful rather than the beginning of a tragedy. Forgetting is a welcome addition to the literature on human memory at a time of both solitude and hope.”Antonio Damasio, author of The Strange Order of Things
“Scott Small has written a book that will calm the fears of anyone who has mislaid a pair of glasses or couldn’t remember the name of an acquaintance and worried they were suffering from incipient memory loss. Forgetting is the work of an accomplished neuroscientist who follows in the tradition of Oliver Sacks, illuminating the mysteries of the brain with personal stories and lively, accessible writing as he makes the case that not remembering is a crucial biological function rather than the inevitable prelude to dementia.”Sue Halpern, author of A Dog Walks into a Nursing Home

“This book is both fascinating and useful. The distinguished memory researcher Scott Small explains why forgetfulness is not just normal but beneficial. By allowing us to see the forest as well as the trees, forgetting promotes creativity and pattern recognition. This readable book will help you understand how the right mix of forgetting and memory allows you—and our whole society—to be emotionally healthy.”­­Walter Isaacson, bestselling author of Leonardo Da Vinci and Steve Jobs
