How to disappear

Haytham El-Wardany

Sold out

The experience of the unseen listener. If this book had been titled “How to listen” or “How to be all ears,” the title would have been appropriate to the content and directly explained the book's focus. Why, then, does the title seem to obscure its subject rather than reveal it, running counter to a title's traditional function? Because this book is grounded in the experience of the unseen listener. more
