Publisher's Summary

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.

Critic Reviews

"[Wallace J. Nichols], more Keanu Reeves in his surf-god pomp than lab-bound scientist - is the very embodiment of his theme...confiding, rhetorical, blissed-out, the writing seems to emerge from one of the flotation tanks Nichols uses to seek out his inner fish.... The tone is that of an extended Ted talk...at the heart of Nichols's book are real revelations." (Philip Hoare, Guardian)
