Patchy narration repairs.

This recording has the most conspicuous narration repairs I have heard in an audiobook. I am surprised this got published. The reader who's voice is patched over in random areas is either a different person or the same person with a bad cold and a low mood. I wanted to enjoy this book but I just couldn't. Go for Dr. Qing Li's original Forrest Bathing book instead.

Too much 'Therapy' for my liking.

Not what I expected. I thought this would be largely about our connection with animals, why horses so often calm hyperactive or autistic children, why dogs are so companionable to us, why we love even dangerous animals like Tigers etc...instead, much of this was about what British people would cringe at - hugging trees, wilderness retreats with psychotherapy, 'grounding' and learning to accept yourself through gardening and being a hippy...I found it quite cringe-worthy and get very bored with American therapy culture which seems to dominate their outlook.Twelve
