          Sensory Exotica By Howard C. Hughes
          Review By Ed Hatcher

        • Acoustics, anatomy, neurology, physiology and animal behavior combine to make this one of the most unique reads I've had in a while.

          The fantastic perceptual systems that exist in our world, from bees and bats to dolphins, truly broaden the concept of what the meaning of perception actually is. Even though my newly acquired knowledge of bees' complex sensory system isn't going to help me navigate through LA traffic, the idea that there are thousands of overlaying perception systems, interconnected with one another on a level we have a hard time comprehending is extremely compelling.
