About this product
- DescriptionWhy does holding a hot drink make us like people more? How can a soldier under fire t even tice he's been shot? What makes sex so much fun? Touch is the most important sense we have. Without it, we cant entirely feel pleasure or pain - we are less than human. In fact, as David Linden demonstrates in the astonishing stories gathered here, touch is central to who we are - from choosing our partners to comforting us on our deathbeds. Exploring the many surprising facts and myths about our sense of touch, Linden reveals how it defines us - and how, by understanding it, we can better kw ourselves.
