Sounds surround us: loud and quiet, melodic and sharp, distant and close, familiar and unknown. The book Sounds invites readers to listen carefully to the amazing world of sounds, full of unusual facts and mysteries. We will hear the sounds of history and try to hear ourselves. We’ll find out what sound is and whether it’s possible to “see” just listenig, what sounds we can’t hear, how humans pronounce sounds, and who is the loudest singer of all.
