Saying that urban dwellers across the globe suffer from "nature deficit disorder," Australian-trained academic Qing Li has created a convincing argument that time in forests is essential for happiness and overall well-being. Narrator Ramon Tikaram brings appealing credibility to the production with his deeply resonant voice, British accent, and colorful phrasing palette. His narration, at once dignified and inviting, allows listeners to absorb and savor this message. The author is an engineer by training, so he's done his homework collecting research studies and multicultural examples showing that spending mindful, intentional time around trees can have positive effects on our stress level, immune system, energy, mood, and creativity. Tikaram's winning performance allows the author's ideas to reach the heart as well as the mind. T.W. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2018, Portland, Maine [Published: DECEMBER 2018]
