內容簡介

令人大感驚奇的科普作品,揭開不同動物眼中,同一個世界的「樣貌」!
新銳科普作家、《我擁群像》作者艾德.楊新作
 
「一部極其迷人的傑作,擁有豐富的科學知識,又充滿魅力。」──辛達塔.穆克吉,《基因:人類最親密的歷史》作者
 
如果我們將一隻知更鳥、一頭大象、一條響尾蛇和一位人類,聚集在同一個空間,他們不僅僅探索周遭環境的方式不一樣,最終「看見」的,也是相當不同的景象。
 
說故事功力一流的普立茲獎得獎作家艾德.楊,在本書中,以令人著迷、趣味橫生的文字,引領讀者打破人類的認知藩籬,探索不同動物感知周遭環境的方式,看見牠們眼中的世界!(文/博客來編譯)

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER - Every kind of animal, including humans, is enclosed within its own unique sensory bubble, perceiving but a tiny sliver of our immense world. Pulitzer Prize-winning science journalist Ed Yong takes us on "a thrilling tour of nonhuman perception" (The New York Times), allowing us to experience the skeins of scent, waves of electromagnetism, and pulses of pressure that other animals perceive.

"One of this year’s finest works of narrative nonfiction . . . Yong’s reporting is layered, seasoned with vivid scenes from laboratories and in the field, interviews with researchers across a spectrum of disciplines."--Oprah Daily

"A dazzling ride through the sensory world of astoundingly sophisticated creatures."--The Wall Street Journal

The Earth teems with sights and textures, sounds and vibrations, smells and tastes, electric and magnetic fields. In An Immense World, Ed Yong coaxes us beyond the confines of our own senses to encounter beetles that are drawn to fires, turtles that can track the Earth’s magnetic fields, fish that fill rivers with electrical messages, and even humans who wield sonar like bats. We discover that a crocodile’s scaly face is as sensitive as a lover’s fingertips, that the eyes of a giant squid evolved to see sparkling whales, that plants thrum with the inaudible songs of courting bugs, and that even simple scallops have complex vision. We learn what bees see in flowers, what songbirds hear in their tunes, and what dogs smell on the street. We listen to stories of pivotal discoveries in the field, while looking ahead at the many mysteries that remain unsolved.

Funny, rigorous, and suffused with the joy of discovery, An Immense World takes us on what Marcel Proust called "the only true voyage . . . not to visit strange lands, but to possess other eyes."
