The Way We Are: What Everyday Objects and Conventions Tell Us About Ourselves

'“[Visser starts] from a comfy, well-bolstered position—a nice tan makes us look healthier, for example, or Valentine’s Day cards are tacky—and then, before we even have our seatbelts fastened, we find ourselves whisked away in a series of brisk paragraphs through historical contexts and cultural cross-references to a destination that is neither comfy nor commonplace.” —John Fraser, editor of Saturday Night magazine'
