On Looking: Eleven Walks with Expert Eyes
In this book, the scientist Alexandra Horowitz discusses how walking in another’s shoes also makes it possible to view things differently. She selected eleven different companions to take a walk with her around a single city block. The result? Multiple new experiences due to the way in which each one experienced his/her environment from another perspective – from that of a dog, to the perspectives of a geologist, a sociologist, a doctor and a sound engineer.
