COMMUNITY REVIEWS

Enjoyable and Informative submitted by sdunav on June 18, 2017, 12:22pm Tremendously enjoyable non-fiction that examines recent research into neurobiology and nature – how being in natural surroundings helps many people relax, and helps health issues like anxiety, ptsd, adhd, high blood pressure, etc. The approach that different countries take in this regard, both in terms of research and in making green areas accessible to people, is also interesting, and Williams travels to Japan, Korea, Singapore, Scotland, Idaho, West Virginia to look at this and experience it herself (including her thoughts on her life and surrounds in Colorado and Washington DC).
