What the readers said about this book:
I was excited to hear comments in the book about medical professionals potentially starting to prescribe nature time in the future.
The author can take a long time to get to the point and sometime repeats himself.
The book is a good clearing-house of ideas about creating stronger connections between human communities and nature.
This book feels like it was written for white, middle class readers and their families.
I appreciated the passion about being in nature.
