Synopsis

The world expert in multisensory perception on the remarkable ways we can use our senses to lead richer lives

'Talks total sense, lots of fun facts, right up there with the best of the best' Chris Evans

How can the furniture in your home affect your well-being? What colour clothing will help you play sport better? And what simple trick will calm you after a tense day at work? In this revelatory book, pioneering and entertaining Oxford professor Charles Spence shows how our senses change how we think and feel, and how by 'hacking' them we can reduce stress, become more productive and be happier.

We like to think of ourselves as rational beings, and yet it's the scent of expensive face cream that removes wrinkles (temporarily) and the noise of the crowd really does affect the referee's decision. Sensehacking explores how the senses are stimulated in nature, at home, in the workplace and at play. Using cutting-edge science, Spence shows how the senses interact and affect our minds and bodies.

'Spence does for the senses what Marie Kondo does for homes - he shows us how to rearrange and declutter our way to better living' Avery Gilbert, author of What the Nose Knows

'Everything you need to know about how to cope with the hidden sensory overload of modern life, engagingly told' Robin Dunbar, author of How Many Friends Does One Person Need?

'A tour de force' David Howes, author of The Sensory Studies Manifesto

'Especially timely in these pandemic times' Roger Kneebone, author of Expert
