"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. On Looking by Alexandra Horowitz This Explains Everything by John Brockman Advice to Little Girls by Mark Twain Time Warped by Claudia Hammond Self. it can be learned, as cognitive scientist Alexandra Horowitz invites us to believe in her breathlessly wonderful On Looking: Eleven Walks with.

But then I thought about it, and being the most interested person alive is pretty cool, too.

Soo, I felt pretty good when I started with Alexandra Horowitz's On Looking as I was anticipating having an obscure-fact party in my brain, but alas, there was no party to be had.

First off, the book is one giant LIE.

Okay so that may be a slightly extreme way of putting it, but I don't seem the be the only one who thought she would repeat the same walk with 11 different experts, thereby casting 11 different points of view on the same space. Wouldn't that have been infinitely more interesting?? Spoiler alert: Yes.

Oddly, some of the walks were in fact the same, whereas the others were in entirely different states. There was also a problem of content.

It often seemed the Horowitz didn't sponge enough information out of her experts to fill the whole book, so she resorted to bolstering each chapter with marginally relevant filler content. Example: In one chapter, she scours the streets with a doctor who's adept at diagnosing illness based on peculiarities of gait and appearance.
