By: Wallace J. Nichols, PhD with a Foreword by Celine Cousteau
A landmark book by marine biologist Wallace "J." Nichols on the remarkable effects of water on our health and well-being.
Pre-Order Summer 2014 release:
SLOWCOAST (pre-order signed copies)
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. Combining cutting-edge neuroscience with compelling personal stories from top athletes, leading scientists, military veterans, and gifted artists, he shows how proximity to water can improve performance, increase calm, diminish anxiety, and increase professional success.
Blue MInd not only illustrates the crucial importance of our connection to water-it provides a paradigm shifting "blueprint" for a better life on this Blue Marble we call home.

"A visionary." ---Outside
"Nichols's message is a critical and compelling one." ---David Bennett, Green Team Operations & Innovations, Google
"Blue Mind is deep down about human curiosity, knowing ourselves more. If J. weren’t curious, we wouldn’t be where we are now. The sea, once it casts its spell, does indeed hold us in its net of wonder forever. People do protect what they love. Why are these the two simple ideas we repeat so often? Because they’re true." ---Celine Cousteau
"Professional ocean lovers, wounded warriors, hopeful parents of an autistic child, masters of the universe, listless managers, marginal performers, and overachievers: if your time on our planet needs less stress and more happiness, find your way to Nichols' "Blue Mind" for the surprisingly simple and joyous ways water can change your life." ---Timothy Dykman, Ocean Revolution
"Every conservation movement requires sound science and effective communication. Neuro-conservation skillfully utilizes the insight of neuroscience to accomplish both of these goals. Already, Nichols' work is sending ripples throughout the world." ---Bay Nature Magazine
"Nichols insists on a more experiential brand of activism, encouraging individuals to encounter the oceans directly, in order to build personal and emotional connections--to get their feet wet." ---GQ Magazine
