Another great book on the health benefits of sunlight is, "Sunlight", by Dr. Zane R. Kime. It is packed full of information on how light affects our health and what we can do to get the most from exposure to sunlight. According to Drs. Kime and Ott, sunbathing for 1 hour a day (a half hour is good, but 1 hour is better) is great for your health. Glasses and sunglasses should NOT be worn as they block some of the beneficial sprectrums (especially the UV) of the sunlight. The more surface area of your skin that is exposed the better. Nude sunbathing is the best, but not always an option. If not, wear white clothing with a loose knit. It is recommended to begin sunbathing for only a few minutes and increase the length of time by only a few minutes each day. Your skin will become more resistant to burning if the increase is gradual. You should avoid getting a sunburn, so if the direct sunlight is too intense to avoid getting burned, then you can spend a portion of the hour in the shade. Dr. Ott would spend 15 minutes lying on his back, 15 minutes on each side, and 15 minutes on his stomach to get sunlight all over his body. Since the sunlight isn't as strong in the winter as it is in the summer (especially in the north), more time spent outdoors would be better. The darker your skin is, the more sunlight you need.
I disagree with some Dr. Kime's information on diet, though. I'd recommend reading information on diet that can be found on the Weston A. Price Foundation website, combined with "The Circadian Prescription", by Dr. Sidney Baker and Karen Barr, for solid information on diet. The Weston Price website also has some very good articles about sun exposure and vitamin D that are a great supplement to these books. If you can only get one of Dr. Ott's books, this is the one to get. Otherwise, get "Health and Light". In addition to this, you will want to read the books, and the articles on the internet, written by Albert Roy Davis and Walter C. Rawls, Jr. They made groundbreaking discoveries about magnetism and electromagnetism.
