this book is pure ecstasy. It is a treasure trove of information,
diverse in space and time and culture but all related to the pleasures of sensory experience. A magical mystery tour...a dive into the world around us..I read this book to my grandchildren and the
silence of listening ears,and the please nana read some more,then all the questions they kept asking for weeks told me this is a book for my bookshelf....then I found another copy at a garage sale and knew
it was ment to be posted...a MUST FOR YOUR BOOKSHELF!
