Our free e-book: Don’t Look, Don’t Touch, Don’t Eat: The Science Behind Revulsion by Valerie Curti


Submitted by syntaxfactory on May 1, 2015 - 11:31am


Our free e-book for May is not for the queasy. Don’t Look, Don’t Touch, Don’t Eat: The Science Behind Revulsion by Valerie Curtis investigates the “shadow emotion” of disgust.
