Explore the healing, transformative power of shedding tears in this vibrant illustrated study of crying, one of the most uniquely human things we do What if crying wasn't just an involuntary reaction to feeling sad, vulnerable, or overwhelmed-but a hidden wellspring of power we could harness to live a fuller life? In The Art of Crying, Pepita Sandwich makes the case that crying is humanity's most misunderstood and magical special effect. We are the only animals who shed tears as a result of the emotions we feel. But crying is not our weakness: it's our superpower. Our tears are a path to growth and healing that leads to deeper and more fulfilling experiences. In this beautifully illustrated book, Sandwich dives deep into an ocean of research into tears to understand the science and history of this uniquely human phenomenon. And she has emerged with a case for "letting it all out" a little more often, because tears have a powerful magic all their own.
