""The Nature Principle" tackles the ambitious task of mapping our way to a more connected future . . . Page after page we learn that in working to heal the world through restoration, we end up healing ourselves." --"Orion" magazine

""The Nature Principle" manages to both teach and delight. Think of it as a refreshing hike for the mind and soul." --Oprah.com""

"Louv's vision is not a rejection of technology or a back-to-the-land trend like the one that came out of the environmental movement 40 years ago. Instead, he wants to tap nature to boost our mental acuity, creativity and health. At its heart, the movement seeks to replace the apocalyptic vision that modern society has created....[ Louv] outlines this new nature movement, and its potential to improve the lives of all people no matter where they live, in his latest book, ""The Nature Principle."'" -- "McClatchy Newspapers"

An exploration of the many happy repercussions of getting in touch with the environment. Austin Chronicle
"

Louv describes the many ways in which reconnecting to the natural world is fundamental to human well-being I believe [Louv s] onto something important, and not just for children So consider this a bit of health care advice: Get outside and dive in - nose first. Charlotte Observer
"

We have created environments that make us sad, fat and unhealthy. Richard Louv has made an insightful diagnosis and offers powerful treatment with the medicine we all need, Vitamin N. -- Richard J. Jackson, MD, Chair, Environmental Health Sciences, UCLA School of PublicHealth

"

Louv's proposal is for a "renaturing of everyday life," and his lively discussion of how to accomplish this is likely to inspire many readers. His is not a doomsday prognosis but rather an inspired prescription for health, happiness, and a world in which humans and nature are in alignment His last book spurred a movement to get kids outside because to do otherwise "threatens our health, our spirit, our economy and our future stewardship of the environment." Based on the timeliness and breadth of Luov s research, it seems likely that The Nature Principal will build on that momentum and change more than a few lives for the better. ForeWord Reviews"

Product Description

For many of us, thinking about the future conjures up images of Cormac McCarthy’s The Road: a post-apocalyptic dystopia stripped of nature. Richard Louv, author of the landmark bestseller Last Child in the Woods, urges us to change our vision of the future, suggesting that if we reconceive environmentalism and sustainability, they will evolve into a larger movement that will touch every part of society.

This New Nature Movement taps into the restorative powers of the natural world to boost mental acuity and creativity; promote health and wellness; build smarter and more sustainable businesses, communities, and economies; and ultimately strengthen human bonds. Supported by groundbreaking research, anecdotal evidence, and compelling personal stories, Louv offers renewed optimism while challenging us to rethink the way we live.
