Supplemental Materials

What is included with this book?


Why do some people adore the grainy texture of a pear, while others shudder at the very idea? Why do noisy, busy environments energize some people and overwhelm others? Living Sensationally explains how our individual sensory patterns affect the way we react to everything throughout the day. This fascinating book includes a questionnaire for readers to discover their behavioural patterns, helping them choose the right job, home, and even type of clothing to enjoy life to the fullest.
