Synopsis

Handbook of Metamemory and Memory by John Dunlosky

This Handbook examines the interplay between metamemory and memory. Each contributor discusses cutting-edge theory and research that, in some way, showcases the symbiotic relationship between metamemory and memory. Together, these chapters support a central thesis, which is that a complete understanding of either metamemory or memory is not possible without understanding their mutual influence. The inspiration for this volume was the life and research of Thomas O. Nelson, whose pioneering and influential research in the fields of metamemory and memory consistently highlighted their integrated nature.

Reviews

This volume represents a magnificent collection of chapters on metamemory, or one's knowledge of one's own memory processes. The authors write about some situations in which people are fairly accurate in their knowledge, as well as other cases in which intuitions are remarkably erroneous. The authors represent a stellar collection of researchers in this area, which makes the book a fitting tribute to the late Tom Nelson who pioneered the study of metamemory. The volume should be of interest to all researchers studying human memory and would make a great source for a graduate or upper-level undergraduate seminar. - Henry L. Roediger, III, James S. McDonnell Distinguished University Professor, Washington University in St. Louis
