Publisher's Summary

The Nature Principle presents a compelling case that a conscious reconnection to nature can make us whole again and that the future will belong to nature-smart individuals, families, businesses, and communities. Supported by evidence from emerging empirical and theoretical research and eye-opening anecdotes, Louv shows that when we tap into the restorative powers of the natural world we can boost mental acuity and creativity, heal illness, increase immunity, broaden our compassion, and strengthen human bonds. As he says in his introduction, The Nature Principle is about the power of living in nature, not with it, but in it. The 21st century will be the century of human restoration in the natural world.

Very inspiring!!

Loved the book!!! I've read Last Child in the Woods and this one is a very good follow up! I was so inspired by the way author talks about nature and possibilities we have as humankind to be KIND to nature and ourselves. It helps you see the future not so doomed and dark. I've noticed that I stop and look at the stars, clouds, trees and flowers more often. Really good read/listen! Thank you, Richard Louv!
