Colin Ellard’s Book on the Psychology of Navigation
University of Waterloo psychologist Colin Ellard’s new book, Where Am I? Why We Can Find Our Way to the Moon but Get Lost in the Mall, was released in Canada this month. Last Friday’s Globe and Mail had an interview with Dr. Ellard as well as a review of the book. It sounds quite interesting: a book about how human beings and animals navigate, and how we get disoriented (i.e., lost). Under a different title, You Are Here, the book will be released in the United States in July. Thanks to Richard Akerman for the tip.
