A Natural History of the Senses

by

Divided into five parts, this book takes each of the senses in turn and explores all facets and associations. Strange truths are juxtaposed with plain facts. The reader learns of the invention of the croissant; why the Empress Josephine wore violet-scented perfume; that premature babies develop quicker if they are massaged; what makes up the perfect Omnivore's picnic; and what the special appeal of chocolate, vanilla and ginger is. The author also wrote "On Extended Wings", a series of essays on learning to fly.
