Description

"This wonderful book . . . is itself a tribute to forests and the magnificence of trees, featuring more than 100 color photographs of forests around the world." --NPR

"In his reassuring and nicely illustrated guide . . . Li offers 'a wealth of data that proves' that shinrin-yoku can reduce blood pressure, stress, and blood-sugar levels. . . . This isn't any mundane walk in the woods." --The New York Times Book Review

"A joyful guide . . . If there's anyone who understands the magic of time spent under arboreal canopies, it's Qing Li, the Japanese doctor who helped spread the gospel of shinrin-yoku ('forest bathing') around the world." --Outside

"With more than 100 photographs from forests around the world, Qing, the world's leading expert in forest medicine, shows how nature can boost your health, creativity and concentration." --Parade

"The definitive guide to a Japanese therapy that says that mindful, intentional time spent around trees can reduce stress levels, boost mood and creativity, and even help you live longer." --BuzzFeed

"A necessary read for anyone looking for new ways to help them relax." --Mother Earth Living

"A scientific argument for a walk in the woods." --OZY

"Filled with beautiful photographs of forests from around the world, this quiet, unassuming book guides the reader through the art and practice of shinrin-yoku, encouraging our overworked, plugged-in world to make room for moments of solitude and peace through the healing properties of trees." --The Columbian

"An invitation and an inspiration to take a walk in the woods, wherever you are." --Greater Good Magazine

"Such a lovely book . . . filled with beautiful photos of the woods. And Li's writing is wonderful. 'I am a scientist, not a poet, ' he explains, as he writes poetically about the science of trees. . . . The book beautifully explores the science of forest medicine--and goes into great detail about how to practice shinrin-yoku." --TreeHugger

"A stunningly beautiful book about . . . the life-changing magic of walking in the woods." --Neil Pasricha, New York Times bestselling author of The Book of Awesome and The Happiness Equation
