Re-reading worthy books is a pleasure, and Wayfinding
by M.R. O’Connor proves it. O’Connor focuses on episodic memory, or conscious recollection of previous experiences in time, place, and associated emotions. Episodic memory enables us to place ourselves in time, travel back to the past and forward into the future.

Describe events in your field over arcs of time and you will reassure your audience that you have vision, backed by experience.
