"Think of how you feel when you watch a gorgeous sunset, listen to a poignant piece of music, or witness an inspiring act of kindness from one stranger to another. We experience awe when we come across something so vast, so powerful, or so moving, that we can't fully wrap our minds around it. Our innate desire to feel awe is nothing new-the ability to experience awe is as core to the human experience as breathing, eating, sleeping, and mating. The science of awe is both exciting and new, and it can have powerful implications for the way we live our lives. This book explores how awe can be part of our path towards greater health, happiness, and meaning in our lives."
