As someone who likes chef memoirs and scientific nonfiction books, when I heard Molly Birnbaum talk on NPR I immediately wanted to read this book. The author does a very good job presenting the research on smell while using her personal story to keep the book moving along. It is a fast reading story although a few times I found the research section a bit slow. As the author points out smell is an underappreciated sense always being valved below sight and hearing. She does an excellent job explaining its importance and relevance in our daily lives.
