From School Library Journal

Adult/High School—Gilbert, a psychologist concerned with the aromatic side of life, is a marvelous storyteller. Weaving together all that is involved in human anatomical smell function, the connecting wires between smell and emotional life, comparative data revealing differences and likenesses between men and women and dogs and humans, the invention and production of artificial scents, and more, he leads readers from tales that amaze to facts that amuse, interspersing opportunities for unabashed wonder. Would the entertainment world be different today if Smell-O-Vision hadn't been beat to market by AromaRama? Would your sense of smell be better if you hadn't played soccer as a kid? Are there good vocational choices for folks who can't smell well at all? The author's prose is flawless, making this book a perfect choice for teens interested in science as well as those still nursing a middle school devotion to trivia. Be sure to point it out to Advanced Placement teachers in both the English and physical sciences departments, but expect less-motivated readers to find chunks of it welcome when read aloud.—Francisca Goldsmith, Halifax Public Libraries, Nova Scotia

Review

Finalist for the 2008 Los Angeles Times Book Prize in Science and Technology


“[S]mart, eminently readable. . . . a lighthearted book, packed with curious tidbits.”
New York Observer

“[A]n entertaining romp through the science of smell.”
Newsweek

“Avery Gilbert is the David Sedaris of the nostril, the Mark Twain of the nasal passages.”
JAMA (Journal of the American Medical Association)

“Avery Gilbert's whistle-stop journey . . . through, around and inside the nose is remarkably entertaining, and a great read for anyone seeking a tour that awakens the senses. Everybody who is anybody in the world of scent, and a few impostors too, make an appearance as we bounce from chapter to chapter, learning diverse olfactory gems.”
New Scientist

“[A] great deal of fun. . . . What the Nose Knows provides a well-researched, even scholarly, compendium of olfactory facts and fallacies, woven into an enticing history of the uses and misuses of scent. Having dug through what one can imagine must have been some very moldy smelling archives, Gilbert presents a wide-ranging yet deep look at what our ‘noses knowses.’”
Science

“[A] great book on an overlooked topic. . . . Gilbert combines a scientist’s sense of wonder, a scent-making professional’s sensibility, and a slightly Beavis and Butt-Head-like fascination with aroma.”
–Peter Dykstra, CNN Science, SciTechBlog

“The volume is almost a guilty pleasure (since smell jokes are generally vulgar), hence one of the best kinds of book. Besides its entertainment value, it is also genuinely informative. . . . Gilbert quips like a stand-up comic throughout but never lets humor trump solid, research-based information, which is nothing to sniff at.”
Booklist

“A scientist tells us entertaining things about odors both pleasant and foul. Olfactory researcher and psychologist Gilbert asks a dozen questions in no particular order and then answers them--often with 'we don't know,' but always with enthusiasm and wit. . . . A beguiling account of the critical role smell plays in our lives.”
Kirkus, starred review

“Psychologist and smell scientist Gilbert's serious science is enlivened by a whimsical sense of humor. . . . Gilbert is an entertaining guide and worth sniffing around with.”
Publishers Weekly

“Avery Gilbert gives us an insider-view of the science and culture of smell with an enormous breadth of knowledge. We know so little about our sense of smell; the facts are simply fascinating and sometimes hilariously funny.  The reader travels to the inner sanctum of the world of fragrance with an erudite, witty and opinionated guide.   I loved it!”
–Mandy Aftel, author of Essence and Alchemy, Aroma, and Scents and Sensibilities

“The delightful and erudite Avery Gilbert employs his multi-disciplined talents as scientist, humanist, and fragrance industry innovator to present fascinating facts with a wry humor. The marvelous What the Nose Knows is likely to remain the authoritative popular source on the art and science of scent for a long time to come.”
–Richard Restak MD, author of The Naked Brain: How the Emerging Neurosociety is Changing How We Live, Work, and Love

“A fascinating exploration of our most mysterious and mythologized sense, written with the precision of a scientist and the flair of a natural story-teller. You'll never think of perfume (or Proust) quite the same way again.”
–Jack Turner, author of Spice

“What a nose-opener! Straight from the horse’s snout, this is a pithy tour of the smellable realm, led by one of its experts. Gilbert guides readers through a universe of odors that can reel you back to your fourth-grade playground or raise up your lunch. Page after page, he amazes: Vanilla-scented butterflies? Corpses that smell, predictably on day seven, of wet fur and old leather? Dried codfish scent dispersed in a maritime museum? I was anosmic, but now I smell!”
—Hannah Holmes, author of Suburban Safari and The Secret Life of Dust

Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally,
it seems as though you relied on the video to make your
point. You definitely know what youre talking about, why waste your intelligence on just posting videos to your weblog when you could be giving us something informative to read?
