Philip Hoare, Guardian
'The nexus of wellbeing and proximity to water - ocean shores, lakes, even fountains - holds promise as an area of multidisciplinary study, argues marine biologist Wallace Nichols. And in his popular mix of biology, neuroscience and ecosystem analysis, some findings do compel.'
A fascinating study of the emotional, behavioral, psychological and physical connections that keep humans so enchanted with water . . . You'll read it once and then come back to it time and again
