A book by James Nestor about the science and art of breathing.

You will never breathe the same again. Breath turns the conventional wisdom of what we thought we knew about our most basic biological function on its head. There is nothing more essential to our health and well-being than breathing: take air in, let it out, repeat 25,000 times a day. Yet, as a species, humans have lost the ability to breathe correctly, with grave consequences. Award-winning science journalist, James Nestor, travels the world to find out what went wrong in our evolution of breathing — and how to fix it. Modern research in pulmonology, psychology, biochemistry, and human physiology is showing us that making even slight adjustments to the way we inhale and exhale can help jump-start athletic performance, rejuvenate internal organs, halt snoring, allergies, asthma, and some autoimmune disease, and even straighten spines. None of this should be possible, and yet it is.
