We may think the world we see is real, but it's not. We see what our brains tell us to see. The book shows how the nervous system defines our worlds and helps us understand why we can be victims of falsehoods perpetrated by our brains. The Man Who Tasted Words is a moving, lyrical chronicle of lives turned upside down by a disruption in one or more of their five senses. It shows how sensory disturbances like that have played havoc with their view of the world and their relationships. Featured in the March 2022 'Making Sense of It All' box.
