For many of us, thinking about the future conjures up images of Cormac McCarthy's The Road : a post-apocalyptic dystopia stripped of nature. Richard Louv, author of the landmark bestseller Last Child in the Woods , urges us to change our vision of the future, suggesting that if we reconceive environmentalism and sustainability, they will evolve into a larger movement that will touch every part of society.

This New Nature Movement taps into the restorative powers of the natural world to boost mental acuity and creativity; promote health and wellness; build smarter and more sustainable businesses, communities, and economies; and ultimately strengthen human bonds. Supported by groundbreaking research, anecdotal evidence, and compelling personal stories, Louv offers renewed optimism while challenging us to rethink the way we live.

Louv is making a living out of writing about "living green" or some such. He really has little of substance to add to what he's written before, but seems to pompously add more hot air than substance. His devotion to matters spiritual has grown and thus undermines his effort to render a scientific cast to his "wisdom".

Enjoyed this book. Uses published research and common sense to explain concepts. I get more frustrated with what we (especially ME) are doing to the planet all the time.
