Audio Book Summary

For centuries, poets and philosophers extolled the benefits of a walk in the woods: Beethoven drew inspiration from rocks and trees; Wordsworth composed while tromping over the heath; Nikola Tesla conceived the electric motor while visiting a park. Intrigued by our storied renewal in the natural world, Florence Williams sets out to uncover the science behind nature's positive effects on the brain.
From forest trails in Korea, to islands in Finland, to groves of eucalyptus in California, Williams investigates the science at the confluence of environment, mood, health, and creativity. Delving into completely new research, she uncovers the powers of the natural world to improve health, promote reflection and innovation, and ultimately strengthen our relationships. As our modern lives shift dramatically indoors, these ideas?and the answers they yield?are more urgent than ever.

    There’s some really neat information in this book, but to get to the gems, you have to sift through the author’s racist point of view. There’s also fatphobia? In a book about nature?? I really wanted to listen to the nature facts and studies, but the author just made me so uncomfortable i had to stop.
