Annoying: The Science of What Bugs Us

Annoying: The Science of What Bugs Us - Joe Palca, Flora Lichtman The writing is terrible. But the science is interesting: the book summarizes and compares experiments from a range of fields, including music and emotional psychology and medicine. Because of the attention to sensory annoyances, it might be a good read for those interested in aesthetic philosophy; because of the behavioral science, it is definitely a satisfying read for those who work in customer service!
