"In our modern lives the opportunity to explore ourselves through nature has become increasingly scarce. However our need for self-reflection and the type of renewal which nature provides is more important than ever. Tom Porter's latest book provides us with a collection of mini-expeditions that are as energizing as they are insightful, and make the perfect companion for those moments at the office when the door is just a bit too far away."
