Description

"Sharp and original, this book should alter how readers look at the world. " --Kirkus

"This fascinating and beautifully illustrated book will make you see the world more clearly than you ever have before. And that clarity will transform how you deal with the challenges and opportunities you face every day." -- Leonard Mlodinow, author of Subliminal and The Drunkard's Walk

How could looking at Monet's water lily paintings help save a company millions? How can noticing people's footwear foil a terrorist attack? How can your choice of adjective win an argument, calm your children, or catch a thief?

In her celebrated seminar, The Art of Perception, art historian Amy Herman has trained experts from many fields to perceive and communicate better. By showing people how to look closely at images, she helps them hone their "visual intelligence," a set of skills we all possess but few of us know how to use effectively. She has spent more than a decade teaching doctors to observe patients instead of their charts, helping police officers separate facts from opinions when investigating a crime, and training professionals from the FBI, the State Department, Fortune 500 companies, and the military to recognize the most pertinent and useful information. Her lessons highlight far more than the physical objects you may be missing; they teach you how to recognize the talents, opportunities, and dangers that surround you every day.

"Herman offers a compelling case for the life-enhancing value--and central importance--of careful observation . . . Visual Intelligence is a fascinating book and an important one--and it is a great read." --Daniel Weiss, president of the Metropolitan Museum of Art
