Among the genre defined by Gladwell, Dawkins, et al., this is the first thinking person's narrative that's actually fun. Not just fun to read, but fun to do. Along with the remarkable feats of some of the sense-impaired individuals that illustrate his insights, Rosenblum tells you how to echolocate in a dark room so you won't run into walls, and how to use audio cues to apprehend a jewel thief if the perp happens to be your evil twin. As a cinephile, I especially loved the behind-the-microphone-behind-the-camera secrets of how the sound engineer and the sound editor make sure you stay drawn into the intimate scenes between Brad and Angie.
You might also be interested in how your nifty new hybrid is dangerously invisible to blind people, and why that matters if you have sighted children, or occasionally cross a parking lot whilst tapping into a cell phone. Watch out!
If there is one complaint, it's that there is almost too much material in here for one book. I can only get through a couple pages at a time, before my mind starts drifting along, following the implications of the material through the fields of art, music and daily life. Maybe one for each sense is called for.
