The Power of Glamour: Longing and the Art of Visual Persuasion, due out in November 2013, and I thank Yogesh for the pointer.  It has a nice cover, as it should.

Great cover indeed, except for the shoes.

Her book on the Substance of Style was good and relevant for anyone who has to think about design. Recommended particularly if you have an education focusing on the sciences or engineering. Postrel’s TED talk on glamour is one of my favorite TED talks. This book is likely to be quite original.
