Healing Spaces: The Science of Place and Well-Being

Written by Esther M. Sternberg

This excellent non-fiction book on the science of the brain examines how our bodies are affected by our surroundings, specifically, how our bodies' ability to heal is affected by our environment. Starting with the belief held by the ancients that some environments have healing properties, contemporary scientific research has begun to inform the design of hospitals and urban areas in an effort to reduce stress and promote healing

Sternberg, a doctor and National Institute of Health researcher, explains scientific concepts in a way that is easy to understand. This book is fascinating.
