    Logging the last of my 2017 reads today so that they'll count towards this year's Reading Challenge totals. Full review coming in early 2018.

    I got this book from my library. Great little experience in learning how to focus more on absorbing and observing nature. But connecting to nature is the ultimate goal here. A very practical guide with exercises and thoughtful stimulation. One special aspect is that the author recognizes that “we do not all get the same ride. Each of us experiences different peaks and troughs of wakefulness each day.” So, our individuality with nature is highly significant. You are you own authority here in [...]

    Good little book to get people started on a path to a closer connection to Mother Nature. As someone who has spent a good deal of my time outdoors throughout my life, I didn't really get anything out of the book - beyond a good reminder to get out and make a conscious choice to connect. However, I do believe it would be good for people who want to connect, but don't know where to start. I think I am convinced that I want to get my hands on the author's other books, tho. Not to mention the nice l [...]

    Pay attention. Be curious. Learn. More of a reminder than an education, but a pleasant little journey.

    4.5 This year I started my reading journey with an attempt to learn more about nature. I ended up picking Tristan Gooley’s book The Lost Art of Reading Nature’s Signs, for which I wrote a very passionate review at the beginning of April. I also got a hold of Gooley’s book How to Read Water which has been on my TBR for a while but I got the chance to browse through it. Naturally I requested How to Read Nature as soon as I was notified that it will be published this year on August 22. I came [...]

    A very quick read being a short 160 pages. We live in a high stress world, everything happening right now. We're well along the way to losing our sense of perspective. Yes, we can stop and smell the roses. If this particular rose is fragrant it might distract us for a moment. Maybe we take a picture and post it on social media. But then it's gone and we find ourselves taking the next picture.Tristan Gooley's How to Read Nature bring us to the point of our picture and has us stop to think about w [...]

    Nice, short book. I'd give it a 4 if there were colour picture of the plants and trees he's talking about. One was the prickly lettuce. It can point out north /south direction line, since that's the directions its leaves grow in. Neat huh? But only a b/w drawing of the plant. I need something more obvious if i'm going to recognise it. Since i have a computer, i looked up 'prickly lettuce' and found it was a weed i cultivated in my garden last year. By the time i figured it was a weed- or wild fl [...]

    Have you ever seen Wall-E? Do yo remember when they arrived on the planet and needed a crash course about life on Earth and how to crawl out of the spaceship?. I think you know where I am heading with this. How to Read Nature aims to help you notice your natural surroundings and awaken to a more nature-mindful you. It is a spark, an introductory approach to nature and how you can understand and interact with it through natural navigation. What the book is not, is a specialized guide for those wh [...]

    I've read bits of Gooley—and about Gooley—previously, but hadn't ever read one of his books. I'm going to read How To Read Water: Clues, Signs & Patterns from Puddles to the Sea next, if only because a) I think it has to be better than this, and b) he clearly knows his stuff, even if this wasn't particularly good.To be fair: All of the exercises he describes in this book, and the ways he asks readers to change their thinking, are things I've done as an outdoor educator. I could have writ [...]

    I recently reread this book after sharing it with a loved one. I appreciate it for many of the same reasons that I come back to Sigard Olson's "The Singing Wilderness" and William Longgood's "The Queen Must Die and Other Affairs of Bees and Men." I have known these books for decades, but each time I revisit them, I recognize that what I know about myself over the intervening years grows and changes as well. Nature, and those who observe it closely as these authors have, doesn't always teach us a [...]

    It had some good exercises to follow about enhancing your senses to 'read' nature. I expected more information similar to what he provided about the trees being shorter due to the direction of the wind. I recall my friend's daughter saying if moss is growing on a tree, that is the side that faces north. She said she learned that on a Scooby Doo cartoon. That's the type of information I was expecting. It did have many things, including how nature works and is interconnected (altitude, wind, veget [...]

    I knew this was an introductory book on the subject but it was way more basic than I expected. I'm certainly no expert, but I like hiking and being outdoors. I would compare the level of info to what you would get on any ranger program at a state or national park. I love those programs, but they're much more interesting when you're standing outside looking at something specific than when you sitting on a couch reading a book. I'm going to try his book on reading water in hopes that it will offer [...]

    This is a wonderful book. If you enjoy the outdoors, read it. It will fine tune your perspective. If you don't enjoy the outdoors, read it and try what it suggests and I think it will change your heart about the real world.

    Honestly, I'm not sure about the mixed reviews. It was simple and pleasant, and insightful. The title vibes a possible spiritual aspect, but this wasn't present within. It was more about finding wonder and whimsy within the facts, connections, endless complexities of the natural world.

    Mary Beth
    This book was a good read but it wasn't what I expected. I thought it would be more hands on guidance. It is basically a starter book for you to read before you dig in deeper to learn more of natures hidden clues and answers. I enjoyed reading it. I will always look at nature differently now.

    Jenny Forrester
    So bummed about this. I had such high hopes. Isn't informative. Is condescending and imagines the most unintelligent audience.

    A book on how to enrich your experience, understanding, and appreciation of nature. What’s not to love?

    I loved this little book! I learned things about nature and my ability to read it that I had never considered before. I think I’ll be coming back to this one frequently.

    3.5 for someone who loves being outdoors I am already fine tuned to nature, for those who don't find time to be still outdoors this book might be more intriguing.
