They sent me a recommended-reading email with Moonwalking With Einstein and a lot of similar memory-themed books this morning. But I've never bought a memory book from Amazon - I don't buy memory books, as a rule, I just wait for people to give them to me. It's worrying.
Anyway, let's all congratulate Nelson Dellis for winning the US Memory Championship at the weekend! The first US Champion to be a regular reader of my blog without the regular reading being at least partly in order to write a book about it! This would also be a good time to remind everyone that Nelson is climbing Mount Everest, just like his namesake famously climbed that big giant column in Trafalgar Square. Go and wish him luck! And give money to the Alzheimer's Association!
