Drs. Kandel and Squire have provided a book for everyone who wishes to learn about memory and learning. As a practicing neurologist, I found a great deal of helpful information; some of it was familiar, much was new, but all was presented in a tremendously lucid manner. A layperson would understand this book quite well, but it has much to offer a professional or a scientist in a related field. RSSims
