Product description

Review

Williams's findings are eminently reassuring.

A thoughtful, refreshing book with a simple but powerful message.

[A] powerful environmental call to arms.

Engaging.

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.

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

[Williams] presents the benefits of spending time outdoors... entertainingly but with enough scientific detail to satisfy the expert.

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

Product Description

"Highly informative and remarkably entertaining." —Elle


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.
