Reviews

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
