about

This book is the first book in Hoopoe Books' ALL ABOUT ME series. It explores the mystery of our minds and memory: How do we remember? And how do we forget? In it, readers will discover all that scientists and researchers know and explore questions yet to be answered.  Readers will begin to notice how their own and other people's memories work. They'll learn to understand why memory is powerful but not perfect and will uncover some strategies for improving memory.  Throughout the book, there are numerous exciting activities to enhance these strategies. It is written by high-school teacher, Robert Guarino, who not only presents fundamental information, but has done so in clear and thoughtful text that teens will relate to.  The book is illustrated throughout with a cast of inviting teen characters done by artist, Jeff Jackson, which helps to illustrate the concepts in a style that young and old alike will enjoy.

There is good, solid information readily available and scientifically validated ... and it's all about you ... and me.

Robert Guarino was born and raised in Flushing, NY. He received a B.A. from Queens College, CUNY, and a teaching credential from Chapman University. He has taught high school in California since 1991. At various points in his career he has taught Science, Math, Art, Social Studies, English, and Journalism. He currently teaches English ...

Editorial Reviews

You can remember what boots Captain Kirk wore on episode #14 of Star Trek, but you can't remember where you put your car keys. "Me and My Memory: Why We Forget Some Things and Remember Others" discusses memory and its strange behaviors with the imperfect juggernaut of information that is the human mind. "Me and My Memory" gives advice on how to soak the important stuff in, and why we remember such meaningless things. "Me and My Memory: Why We Forget Some Things and Remember Others" is a top read for those intrigued by memory. --MIDWEST BOOK REVIEW
