I love the title of this book. It conjures up an amazing metal image, which as you read the book, is the point.
Joshua Foer (who is also the younger brother of Jonathan Safran Foer, one of my favorite authors) finds himself at the USA Mental Athletes championship a year after he started researching memory.
It's a pretty meaty read, but interesting as well. I think I wanted to hear more humorous vignettes of his story while preparing, but all in all, a good book.
I think I am going to start to practice the Major system.
