I read a lot of non fiction and am impressed by the ability of most writers in this genre to put me to sleepEmily s book by contrast is full of all these uirky and timely insights and as I read it during this time of uarantine I couldn t help but marvel at the biodiversity of the indoor space I otherwise thought of as being pretty sterileAlso good stuff in here about the psychological and health impacts of buildings on us You can see some of this research in her pieces for various outlets Washington Post etc but the bulk of it is here in this book Well worth a read
