"Undoubtedly one of the most stimulating books of the year, if not the decade, and the most enchanting thing I've read in ages."--Maria Popova, Brain Pickings "Horowitz writes like a poet, thinks like a scientist, and ventures like an explorer. Her book will have you looking in a new way at the world around you, and make you glad you did."--Susan Orlean "author of Rin Tin Tin " "These eleven exquisite, clever and and tenderly recounted small adventures remind me of something I learned back when I lived in India: the need to perceive "the scent behind the smell." Alexandra Horowitz has attempted much the same thing with her eyes - much aided by the seeing of others - and has in consequence become increasingly successful in perceiving what one might call "the sight behind the scene." Her resulting epiphanies are available to us all, if we take care to learn from her, in this lovely book, just how it is done."--Simon Winchester "author of The Map that Changed the World " "Elegant and entertaining."--Boston Globe "A refreshing celebration of the rewards of trying to see the world through the eyes of others."--Chicago Tribune "Insightful."--Publishers Weekly "Engaging, amusing, and relatable..." --Booklist "Alexandra Horowitz does more than open our eyes in On Looking: Eleven Walks with Expert Eyes. She opens our hearts and minds, too, gently awakening us to a world -- in fact, many worlds -- we've been missing...The pages hum and shine as a result, warmly reflecting the author's genuine enthusiasm for her work and its revelations."--USA Today "Alexandra Horowitz's new book is as wonderful as her first. Inside of a Dog helped us to imagine the worlds of our beagles, collies, greyhounds and mutts. On Looking teaches us that the world is just as rich, strange and charmed when seen through the eyes of our local artists, doctors, architects and toddlers. On Looking also teaches us that Alexandra Horowitz is a writer to watch."--Jonathan Weiner "author of Beak of the Finch "
