Read full description of the books On Looking: Eleven Walks with Expert Eyes:Alexandra Horowitz is an incredibly intelligent and interesting person. I just really wish she was a better writer.
She has the unfortunate inability to tell when she's gone on far too long on a topic. I can sense her passion, but she's far more engrossed in each individual topic than I was.
About a third of the way through the book she noticed a couch on the side of the road, and the first thing I thought was "great, now we're going to have three pages in a row about a couch".
All in all, I don't think it's worth reading unless you really like her style. I just found it very slow and repetitive, despite her occasional moments of genius.
