Format: Hardcover
I got this book at the Frankfurt Book Fair 2010. As the author states herself, in today's world of stress and pressure we forget how much treasure is all around us. We just have to be willing to see and! to hear it. Although I am a person who does take time to admire the world around, this book reminded me of some pictures that went unnoticed so far. Thank you Marsha and William!

What a lovely salute to the ordinary, everyday sounds that so many of us take for granted! This delightful little book should be on everyone's coffee table, to be browsed periodically as a reminder of how fortunate we are to hear. The sounds of everyday keep us in touch with our surroundings, our loved ones, and our many unappreciated blessings. Thank you, Marsha Engle and William Huber, for your charming reminder that we are often so busy focusing on our to-do lists, our daily schedules, and our problems that we ignore the beautiful sounds that surround us and that keep us connected to the world and with each other. Take time today to be aware of your acoustic environment and appreciate the sounds from street-musicians, the fax machine receiving a message, the turning of book pages, your stomach growling, and all of the other sounds that rarely are acknowledged with appreciation. And most important of all, protect your hearing by avoiding loud sounds that may damage your precious ability to hear. For more information on conserving your hearing, visit [...]

This is the kind of book one curls up in front of a fire with a cup of coffee and a loved one, slowly savoring each page. The images are lush, the text is sparse but poignant, bringing to mind sights, sounds and smells from the entire spectrum of life. Whether sharing with a partner or a child, it's a warm communal experience that will touch your heart and enrich your life. I love this book.

Its an incredible powerful little book. I gave it to my uncle with Alzheimer's Disease helps him remember things in his life. Everyone get something different out of the book, for example fresh coffee perking could be grandmas house or the dinner everyone remembers their own memory of that particular sound or picture. :) Its a must buy!!
