# The Shape of the Sky

\$71.50

by David Cook

Join author David Cook, who for forty years has taught patients to experience the dimensions of space. Dr. Cook’s lectures have delighted audiences around the globe. Now he shares his expertise with doctors, therapists, and anyone who has a curiosity about how we see the world.

Vision is not something that happens to us, Cook explains, but rather something we have learned to do. We see what we value. Routine eye exams value how little we can see; this book values how big we can see, the heights of perception rather than just the bottom of the eye chart.

We imagine that those standing beside us share our view of the world. Learn how nothing could be further from the truth. How we do vision is the difference between excelling in the flat, close world of books or navigating the depths of winding, crowded roads in the dark of night.

Having read this book, doctor and patient alike will see the world in a new way, a way that truly captures the shape of the sky.
