In the author’s words, this book aims to “survey the full range of the world’s smells, and to explain why they exist. Our sense of smell has the power to reveal invisible, intangible details of our material world and life, and trigger in us feelings that are the essence of being alive. And we can augment that power by drawing on humankind’s ever-growing body of knowledge about the senses and the world. The sciences in particular can help us perceive more than we ever would on our own, and find meaning in what we perceive.” Savoring the World breaks new ground in revealing that smells should be at the heart of making informed decisions about what and how we eat.
