Acoustic engineer Trevor Cox, once working to eradicate unwanted noise, found an appreciation for even the most unpopular of sounds. Cox now revels in exotic noises—creaking glaciers, whispering galleries, stalactite organs, musical roads, humming dunes, seals that sound like alien angels, and a Mayan pyramid that chirps like a bird. Through the lens of archaeology, neuroscience, biology, and design, Cox explains how sound shapes our lives and our surroundings. The Sound Book encourages us to become better listeners in a world dominated by the visual and to open our ears to the glorious cacophony all around us.
