Description
In this delightful companion volume to Inside of a Dog, research scientist Alexandra Horowitz explains how dogs perceive the world through their most spectacular organs—their noses—and how we humans can put our under-used sense of smell to work in surprising ways. To a dog, every breath of air is loaded with information, and Horowitz sets off on a quest to understand their complex experience of scents, combining a personal journey of smelling with a tour through the improbable science behind canine olfactory powers. Indeed, readers may find that they perceive smell as never before, as Horowitz lets us inhabit the world as a dog does.

"I'm not entirely certain whether Alexandra Horowitz's Being a Dog has made me want to buy a dog or morph into one—but I do know that it was magical. Horowitz has crafted an utterly engrossing, witty, finely observed narrative that will make you look at the power of the nose in a wholly new way."—Maria Konnikova

"Rich and absorbing.... Both dog lovers and pop science readers will want to stick their noses in this book, and they may find themselves using their noses, like Horowitz and dogs everywhere, to experience the world more vividly."—Publishers Weekly
