Synopsis
From forest trails in Korea, to islands in Finland, to eucalyptus groves in California, Florence Williams investigates the science behind nature's positive effects on the brain. Delving into brand-new research, she uncovers the powers of the natural world to improve health, promote reflection and innovation, and strengthen our relationships. As our modern lives shift dramatically indoors, these ideas--and the answers they yield--are more urgent than ever.

Engaging. Williams's findings are eminently reassuring. A thoughtful, refreshing book with a simple but powerful message. [A] powerful environmental call to arms. A veteran journalist, Williams flexes her conditioned reporting muscles.... Her fast-paced book takes readers across three continents as she trails all kinds of experts, from phycologists to foresters. [Williams] presents the benefits of spending time outdoors... entertainingly but with enough scientific detail to satisfy the expert. Florence Williams, keen observer, deft writer, creates a fascinating mosaic here. What are the costs--to us!--of humanity's increasing disconnection from nature? What are the likely benefits--to us!--of retaining that threatened connection?... Large.--David Quammen, New York Times best-selling author of The Tangled Tree The Nature Fix is a beautifully written, thoroughly enjoyable exposition of a major principle of human life now supported by evidence in biology, psychology, and medicine.--Edward O. Wilson, University Research Professor Emeritus, Harvard University
