From the #1 bestselling author of Inside of a Dog—“an incredible journey into the olfactory world of man’s best friend” (O, The Oprah Magazine), Alexandra Horowitz’s follow-up to her New York Times bestseller explains how dogs experience the world through their most spectacular organ—the nose. In her “fascinating book…Horowitz combines the expertise of a scientist with an easy, lively writing style” (The New York Times Book Review) as she imagines what it is like to be a dog. Guided by her own dogs, Finnegan and Upton, Horowitz sets off on a quest through the cutting-edge science behind the olfactory abilities of the dog. In addition to speaking to cognitive researchers and smell experts, Horowitz visits detection-dog trainers and training centers; she meets researchers working with dogs to detect cancerous cells and anticipate epileptic seizure or diabetic shock; and she even attempts to smell-train her own nose. As we come to understand how rich, complex, and exciting the world around us is to the canine nose, Horowitz changes our perspective on dogs forever. Readers will finish this book feeling that they have broken free of their human constraints and understanding smell as never before; that they have, for however fleetingly, been a dog. And, as The Boston Globe says about Being a Dog, “becoming more doglike, not surprisingly, can make anyone’s life a little more vivid.”

On Looking begins with inattention. It is about attending to the joys of the unattended, the perceived 'ordinary.' Horowitz encourages us to rediscover the extraordinary things that we are missing in our ordinary activities. Even when engaged in the simplest of activities like taking a walk around the block, we pay so little attention to most of what is right before us that we are sleepwalkers in our own lives.

How is a fertilized egg able to turn itself into an adult? Through a highly original synthesis of science and art, this book vividly describes the recent revolution in our understanding of how plants and animals develop, and the fresh insights this gives us into the nature of evolution and human creativity. - ;How is a tiny fertilised egg able to turn itself into a human being? How can an acorn transform itself into an oak tree? Through a highly original synthesis of science and art, this book vividly describes the recent revolution in our understanding of how plants and animals develop. Drawing on a wide range of material -- from flowers growing petals instead of sex organs, and flies that develop an extra pair of wings, to works by Leonardo and Magritte -- it explains the language and meaning of genes, in an entertaining way that is both accurate and accessible to the general reader. It shows how an organism develops through an interactive dialogue in which there is no clear separation between plan and execution, much as an artist might paint a picture. By explaining how this process has arisen, the book arrives at fresh and exciting insights into the nature of evolution, development and human creativity. -
