A Natural History of the Senses by Diane Ackerman

To read Diane Ackerman's A Natural History of the Senses is to dive headlong into a sensuous feast.

These delightful, inspired essays on the five senses - smell, touch, vision, hearing, taste - mix biology, psychology, history, anthropology, and poetry into voluptuous prose.

Who could fail to pause over Diane Ackerman's description of Cleopatra welcoming Mark Antony to her bed in a room awash in a foot and a half of rose petals? Learn why orange juice tastes bitter when you drink it after brushing your teeth. Crawl in total darkness, feeling your way through the blaring confusion of textures in the San Francisco Touch Dome. Visit a laboratory in suburban Chicago where they levitate objects with ultra sound, or meet a "professional nose" who has "composed" scents for everything from perfume to laundry detergent.

A rich book, where even the rhythm and movement of the sentences can be awe-inspiring, A Natural History of the Senses is not meant to be gobbled in huge helpings, but to be savored and browsed through like a box of exquisite chocolates. You'll come away from each reading with keener senses - seeing colors more deeply, hearing your favorite music anew, savoring complex flavors on your tongue.
