The woman who can't forget : the extraordinary story of living with the most remarkable memory known to science : a memoir

by Jill Price with Bart Davis.

People might envy someone with such an extraordinary memory that she has been studied by neuroscientists, until they learn that Jill Price's ability extends only to details of her own life, sometimes haunts her, and does not to apply to memorizing facts. In collaboration with an established writer, this Los Angeles resident relates how she has coped since adolescence with hyperthymestic syndrome (defined in the glossary), in the context of current understanding of how memory works. This first-known case was documented in a 2006 journal article. Annotation ©2008 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
