From Here to There
The Art and Science of Finding and Losing Our Way
Discover the complex mental map in our brains that allows us to navigate unfamiliar territory with ease in From Here to There. Michael Bond tells stories of lost and found travelers, orienteering champions, and early aviators while surveying the science of human navigation. Navigation skills shaped vital cognitive functions outside of the realm of navigation, including abstract thinking, imagination, and memory. Bond's exploration of the latest research from psychologists, neuroscientists, animal behaviorists, and anthropologists is a global expedition towards understanding human orienting in built and natural environments.
