GREAT READ - 'Breath'
"Our breath is a beautiful, healing, mysterious gift, and so is this book. I already feel like it’s going to change my life." —Elizabeth Gilbert
My son recommended this book to me recently, and I have not been able to put it down. I knew enough about breathing techniques to be intrigued by this book.
On top of that, the reviews alone made me want to read everything that Mr. James Nestor had to say about ‘Breathing’ Get the book here
“Breath is an utterly fascinating journey into the ways we are wired. No matter who you are, you’ll want to read this.” —Po Bronson, New York Times–bestselling author of What Should I Do with My Life? and NutureShock
“An eye-opening, epic journey of human devolution that explains why so many of us are sick and tired. A must-read book that exposes what our health care system doesn’t see.” —Dr. Steven Y. Park, Albert Einstein College of Medicine, author of Sleep, Interrupted
“I don’t say this often, but when I do I mean it: This book changed my life. Breath is part scientific quest, part historical insight, part Hero’s Journey, full of groundbreaking ideas, and a rollicking good read. I had no idea that the simple and intuitive act of inhaling and exhaling has taken such an evolutionary hit. As a result, I figured out why I sleep so badly and why my breathing feels so often out of sync. With a few simple tweaks, I fixed my breathing and fixed myself. A transformational book!” —Caroline Paul, bestselling author of The Gutsy Girl
“If you breathe, you need this book. When we undervalue anything, including something so basic as breathing, bad things always happen—and Nestor makes it clear how awful it’s gotten. But he also provides a clear airway back to better, deeper, stronger respirations.” —Wallace J. Nichols, PhD, New York Times–bestselling author of Blue Mind
"If you want to read a book about the power of the breath, this is it!" —Patrick McKeown, author of The Oxygen Advantage
“Breath shows us just how extraordinary the act of breathing is and why so much depends on how we do it. An enthralling, surprising, and often funny adventure into our most overlooked and undervalued function.” —Bonnie Tsui, author of Why We Swim and American Chinatown
“A welcome, invigorating user’s manual for the respiratory system.” —Kirkus Reviews
