The Lost Art of Reading Nature's Signs - Tristan Gooley

Over the years our lives have become increasingly easier with technology making information easily available. Smartphones can provide updates on the weather, your location, what plants you're looking at, and a number of other information in the blink of an eye. Many of us have lost knowledge that was once easily accessible in our brains through lack of use, while others have never had the opportunity to learn it with technology so readily available.

With this book, Gooley hopes to bring this once common knowledge back to our consciousness. The conversational tone with which the book is written in makes the information easy to process and digest. He talks about his own experiences with how he used his knowledge in every day excursions, like using moss to figure out which direction he needs to head or using the stars to find his way, and how he used various signs to anticipate the weather for those excursions.

The information is also provided in a number of tables and pictures within the chapters for those who find visual representations helpful. The author also provides further resources at the end of the book for those who would like to expand their knowledge.

This is a book more for beginner's or those who want to brush up on their knowledge base. Experienced individuals may find value in the experiences in which Gooley conveys the use of this knowledge. A light and enjoyable read.
