We all enjoy (and love to comment on) our experiences with media, cuisine, design, games and more. Clearly, aesthetic pursuits are an integral part of the human experience, this book tries to tell us why from three different points of view.

It’s a textbook meant to be read and discussed in the classroom but I enjoyed reading it outside of that context.

Compared to a few other psychology texts that I’ve read, the writing was concise and to the point. It mostly avoided repeating itself which I appreciated.

I quite enjoyed Nick Riggle’s chapter on food as art because I’m a fan of Nick Riggle’s work and I’m also passionate about food.
