Description

Longlisted for the 2020 Wainwright Prize'I can't remember the last book I read that I could say with absolute assurance would save lives.

But this one will' Chris Packham'Fabulously direct and truthful, filled with energy but devoid of self-pity . . . I was impressed and enchanted. Highly recommended' Stephen Fry'Succeeds - triumphantly - in articulating with great honesty what it is like to suffer with a mental illness, and in providing strategies for coping' Mail on SundayWhen Joe Harkness suffered a breakdown in 2013, he tried all the things his doctor recommended: medication helped, counselling was enlightening, and mindfulness grounded him.

But nothing came close to nature, particularly birds.

How had he never noticed such beauty before? Soon, every avian encounter took him one step closer to accepting who he is. The positive change in Joe's wellbeing was so profound that he started a blog to record his experience.

Three years later he has become a spokesperson for the benefits of birdwatching, spreading the word everywhere from Radio 4 to Downing Street. In this groundbreaking book filled with practical advice, Joe explains the impact that birdwatching had on his life, and invites the reader to discover these extraordinary effects for themselves.
