Why are we drawn to the ocean each summer? Why does being near water set our minds and bodies at ease? In Blue Mind, Wallace J. Nichols revolutionizes how we think about these questions, revealing the remarkable truth about the benefits of being in, on, under, or simply near water. Grounded in cutting-edge studies in neurobiology, cognitive psychology, economics, and medicine, and made real by stories of innovative scientists, doctors, athletes, artists, environmentalists, businesspeople and lovers of nature - stories that fascinate the mind and touch the heart - Blue Mind will awaken readers to the vital importance of water to the health and happiness of us all.

Review:

The tone is that of an extended Ted talk . . . at the heart of Nichols's book are real revelations (Philip Hoare Guardian)

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 (Washington Post)

'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.' (Nature)

Book Description:

Blue Mind is a fascinating account using compelling new research to understand our relationship to the planet's most omnipresent resource - water.
