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 twenty-first century will be the century of human restoration in the natural world.”

    " This is an extremely "readable" book, even for someone who doesn't have a background in science or nature. Louv has a lot of really good suggestions for changes at a national level but there are plenty of things you can do in your own life that will make a difference for yourself and for the future of our world. Anyone who is interested in getting back into touch with nature should read this book. "

    " Louv develops his arguments from "Last Children in the Woods" (and if you read one of his books, that's the one), asserting that Nature Deficit Disorder afflicts everyone and lies at the root of many social and environmental problems. He pushes for social networking as a means to remedy this situation from the family and neighborhood level. Thr issue is profoundly important and yet I found the book kind of redundant after awhile and, like many non-fiction books, could have been done more effectively as a magazine essay. "

    " Richard Louv is coming to the Fox Cities Book Festival this month. Our book group is discussion this book and I will go hear him speak. I read his Last Child in the Woods in its entirety and portions of this book. He makes good points, but could write it in many fewer words. "

    " The topic is right up my alley, but the writing isn't great. And many things were similar to Last Child in the Woods. Still, it is important to know this stuff as it relates to my field. "
