Praise

“This wonderful book . . . is itself a tribute to forests and the magnificence of trees, featuring more than 100 color photographs of forests around the world.” —NPR

“In his reassuring and nicely illustrated guide . . . Li offers ‘a wealth of data that proves’ that shinrin-yoku can reduce blood pressure, stress, and blood-sugar levels. . . . This isn’t any mundane walk in the woods.” —The New York Times Book Review

“With more than 100 photographs from forests around the world, Qing, the world’s leading expert in forest medicine, shows how nature can boost your health, creativity and concentration.” —Parade

“The definitive guide to a Japanese therapy that says that mindful, intentional time spent around trees can reduce stress levels, boost mood and creativity, and even help you live longer.” —BuzzFeed

“A necessary read for anyone looking for new ways to help them relax.” —Mother Earth Living

“A scientific argument for a walk in the woods.” —OZY

“Filled with beautiful photographs of forests from around the world, this quiet, unassuming book guides the reader through the art and practice of shinrin-yoku, encouraging our overworked, plugged-in world to make room for moments of solitude and peace through the healing properties of trees.” —The Columbian

“An invitation and an inspiration to take a walk in the woods, wherever you are.” —Greater Good Magazine

“Such a lovely book . . . filled with beautiful photos of the woods. And Li’s writing is wonderful. ‘I am a scientist, not a poet,’ he explains, as he writes poetically about the science of trees. . . .

“A stunningly beautiful book about . . . the life-changing magic of walking in the woods.” —Neil Pasricha, New York Times bestselling author of The Book of Awesome and The Happiness Equation
