I just got my copy of this book in the mail yesterday. I love Joe Sachs' essay in here, "The Work of Imagination: Sundry and Summary." It is about animals, or rather how human beings learn to measure or observe the imaginative and intellectual capacities of animals. Last night I also read Sam Kutler's essay, "Favorite Analogies." In it, he simply explains his six "favorite proportions." It made me remember how wonderful it is to spend time thinking through geometrical and arithmetic problems.
