It wasn t bad I felt like it was nostalgia than memory making ideas In truth it played onwasn t bad I felt like it was nostalgia than memory making ideas In truth it played on self esteem and made me a little sad that I don t have the happy or joyful memories he recounts in this book For some this might be a fun read but for me it was depressing This was an enjoyable look at the science of memory and how our memories affect our happinessThe format of the book makes for very easy and pleasant reading with brief but well written subsections and beautiful illustrations and photosAny reader will find food for thought here about how to process the big and little things in life so as to have a deep reservoir of meaningful memories in the story that you narrate about your own life I especially loved the advice to harness the power of firsts by seeking out novel experiences and outsource memory by recording what you experience and not just in photos which can actually decrease your ability to pay attention to the moment For as Confucius says The palest ink is better than the best memoryI thought there were some really handy suggestions about how to diminish the pull of your devices so that you are capable of focusing on the moment The author also addresses subjects such as the forgetting curve and the challenge of an overly curated memory bank that you create on social mediaThis author is very amusing but the FUNNIEST section was where he briefly muses on why people are so excited about football and what the world would be like if people were eually passionate about for instance origami To a non sports enthusiast this whole section will have you standing and applaudingI recommend this uick and pleasant read to everyoneThanks to Edelweiss for this advance review copy Everything about this book is beautiful and stunning from the physical book to the inner content Whether it be the simple details in the illustrated graphics or the breathtaking photographs everything within this book was well thought of and done #With Intention The Layout #intention The layout content the writing all of this combined into a beautiful book that captured the message by leaving an impression and making a memory for me As someone who s incredibly nostalgic and sentimental this book was a perfect read for me especially during a difficult time where I felt that I was struggling and becoming somewhat jaded in everyday moments This book was a helpful reminder of what truly matters in life and showed how to work on getting back to appreciating those moments Whether this book is placed on a bookshelf to be read or used as a beautiful coffee ta.
