Did you know that breathing in the scent of pine trees can immediately lower your blood pressure? That's just one of the facts listeners will learn in Williams's exploration of how exposure to nature can affect our well-being. Unfortunately, Emily Woo Zeller inserts herself a bit too much into the narration, which distracts from rather than enhances the text. A more straightforward reading would have better served Williams's fascinating book. As she participates in studies, shares research findings, and tries to find nature in her adopted Washington, DC, neighborhood, Williams eventually arrives at this cogent advice: "Go outside, often, sometimes in wild places. Bring friends or not. Breathe." J.M.D. © AudioFile 2017, Portland, Maine [Published: MAY 2017]
