Always thought you'd be happier if you could just live by the ocean? As Wallace J. Nichols argues in his new book, it's not all in your head. Presenting cutting-edge neuroscience alongside personal accounts from athletes, artists and professionals, Nichols offers a compelling argument for why water is not just a valuable resource, but an invaluable part of life that can improve performance, increase calm, diminish anxiety and increase professional success. This summer we're excited to have him join us in Seattle to sign his new book and discuss the astounding benefits of being in, on, under or simply near the water we too often take for granted.
