Smart Guy

Joshua Foer probably never forgets is that he is, as writers tend to describe him, novelist Jonathan Safran Foer's younger brother. But big friggin' deal, really -- the elder Foer probably wishes he had Josh's mad skills, which he developed to win the 2006 U.S. Memory Championships and describes in his first book, Moonwalking with Einstein: The Art and Science of Remembering Everything.

High-end competitive memorizing is something many people could achieve, Foer learned. It's largely a matter of focus, tools, and technique. So we'll write this part down for you: Foer will discuss and sign Moonwalking at Changing Hands Bookstore. The event is free, but pre-ordering the book, which just came out in paperback for $16, guarantees you a seat (while they last) and a place in line.
