Editorial Reviews

Review

"[Williams] presents the benefits of spending time outdoors… entertainingly but with enough scientific detail to satisfy the expert."
New York Times Book Review

"Engaging."
San Francisco Chronicle

"Williams’s findings are eminently reassuring."
Atlantic

"[A] scientific tour de Mother Earth…The Nature Fix offers a cross-continental rumination on nature’s feel-good effects in a world that’s increasingly concrete-centric."
Portland Monthly

"A veteran journalist, Williams flexes her conditioned reporting muscles.… Her fast-paced book takes readers across three continents as she trails all kinds of experts, from phycologists to foresters."
Earth Island Journal

"A thoughtful, refreshing book with a simple but powerful message."
Kirkus Reviews

"[A] powerful environmental call to arms."
Publishers Weekly

"The Nature Fix is a beautifully written, thoroughly enjoyable exposition of a major principle of human life now supported by evidence in biology, psychology, and medicine."
Edward O. Wilson, University Research Professor Emeritus, Harvard University

"I’m no tree hugger, but The Nature Fix made me want to run outside and embrace the nearest oak. Not for the tree’s sake but mine. Florence Williams makes a compelling, and elegant, case that nature is not only beautiful but also good for us. If Thoreau were steeped in modern neuroscience and possessed an endearingly self-deprecating sense of humor, the result would be the book you hold in your hands."
Eric Weiner, New York Times best-selling author of The Geography of Genius

"Florence Williams, keen observer, deft writer, creates a fascinating mosaic here. What are the costs―to us!―of humanity’s increasing disconnection from nature? What are the likely benefits―to us!―of retaining that threatened connection?… Large."
David Quammen, New York Times best-selling author of The Tangled Tree

About the Author

5.0 out of 5 stars Absorb Nature
By M. J. Leake on December 12, 2018
Ever since I witnessed the beauty of the Grand Canyon, I was awestruck not only with its magnificent but it was a moment that allowed me to discover something enriching about absorbing Nature.
Honestly, I found religion with Nature, that day on the north rim looking into the canyon below and across the surrounding landscape of beauty that somehow healed all of whatever stressors were in my life.

Florence Williams novels, "The Nature Fix," and "The Three Day Effect," are essential reading for all humans who are stressed out, mentally and physically.
She identifies specific studies in Japan, and Korea, along with American researchers discovering and describing the effects of absorbing nature.

Florence Williams herself participated with others on various backpacking and hiking outings to reveals why it is essential for the body to absorb nature, no matter what your background or history of trauma, or, your social, economic environment.
More importantly, it is a simplistic and easy way for humans to heal, by merely taking a walk in the woods for three days if not three days straight return visit, in my opinion, several times weekly.

As an aspiring, unpublished author, the novel has strengthened my belief that I will continue my outdoor travels around the world focusing on the absorption of nature because creativity flows easier and more precise for the mind while healing the soul.

This is a brilliant book that goes through the great journey and research the author put into discovering the scientifically proven benefits of being in nature. It was quite eye-opening and really made me start going out into nature more.
