Publisher's Summary

What is it like to never forget - to be able to retrieve not only every positive moment of every day of your life, but also every painful episode as if it were happening again? Imagine a permanent record of every event of your life constantly running through your brain, making you both master of your past and the prisoner of your relentless memory. Jill Price's memory is so powerful and so detailed that she can remember what she had for breakfast on any given day, going back into the 1970s. She can recall every conversation she had, and the major news event of that day. Her recall is so accurate that she has repeatedly corrected encyclopedia entries - the printed record turned out to be wrong. Automatic and unstoppable, her memory has been the subject of exhaustive and ongoing scientific study and may well hold vital clues to the most mysterious questions about how memory works.The Woman Who Can't Forget is the beautifully written and moving story of Jill's quest to come to terms with her singular and astonishing abilities, from the very first glimmers that her mind worked differently from others', to turbulent times coping with the flood of an ever-present past playing in her mind, to the breakthrough of finding the scientists who could diagnose her condition.Offering fascinating insights into the many ways that both remembering and forgetting inform and shape our lives, this unique life story will forever change how readers consider their own recollections.

Boring Listen

It's like a recap of the author's past via her great memory. The narration is extremely monotonous and slow. It's great that the author has this special ability of remembering everthing in such detail. But she just keeps going on an on about dates and her recollections. After about 2 hours of narration it gets very irritating and I almost felt like telling the author "ok...I get it...You have a great memory". I found the book very dissapointing.

Often repetative

and even tale of a woman with a super memory. Interesting when it remains on task.
