Breath The New Science of a Lost ArtBrought to you by Penguin Narrated by James Nestor There is nothingessential to our health and wellbeing than breathing take air in let it out repeat 25000 times a day Yet as a species humans have lost the ability to breathe correctly with grave conseuences Journalist James Nestor travels the world to figure out what went wrong and how to fix it The answers aren't found in pulmonology labs as we might expect but in the muddy digs of ancient burial sites se This book changed my life than any book since Born to Run back in 2009? It's full of amazing information super fun to read and is like I said life changing I snore a bit my endurance is less than I'd like and often I find myself just a bit low on energy What this book taught me was that all things are connected It's the breath obviously What's through a few simple exercises all of it can be safely and easily cured Why didn't my doctor tell me this? It's all in here and it works I literally feel better because I bought and read this bookPlus the book is really just a lot of fun to read It's a worthy worthy follow up to Nestor's last book DEEP and this one just gets deeper and wierder and even full of adventure My favorite part is the chapter about how the human skull has changed over the last couple hundred years because of changes in how we breath It could have been really boring but Nestor doesn't just write about it he actually goes to Paris crawls into a sewer and breaks into the secret catacombs below the city to actually hold a hundreds of year old skull Hamlet style Alas poor Yorik &c You actually see the skull and how they change Unforgettable stuff IMHO The book is a must read and must buy
