From the author of the giant No. 1 New York Times bestseller Inside of a Dog comes an equally smart, delightful, and startling exploration of how we discover our world. Alexandra Horowitz's brilliant On Looking: Eleven Walks with Expert Eyes shows us how to see the spectacle of the ordinary-to practice, as Sir Arthur Conan Doyle put it, "the observation of trifles." On Looking is structured around a series of eleven walks the author takes with experts on a diverse range of subjects, including an urban sociologist, an artist, a geologist, a physician, and a sound designer. She also walks with a child and a dog to see the world as they perceive it. What they see, how they see it, and why most of us do not see the same things reveal the startling power of human attention. As the million-plus readers of Inside of a Dog have discovered, Alexandra Horowitz is charmingly adept at explaining the mysteries of human perception. On Looking confirms her place as one of today's most illuminating observers of our infinitely complex world.show more
