Nichols to Billion Baby Turtles--and all preorders will be signed by the author. Six out of seven species of sea turtles around the world are endangered or threatened.

Blue Mind: The Surprising Science That Shows How Being Near, In, On, or Under Water Can Make You Happier, Healthier, More Connected and Better at What You Do
by Wallace J Nichols
Why are we drawn to the ocean each summer? Why does being near water set our minds and bodies at ease? In BLUE MIND, Santa Cruz author Wallace J. Nichols revolutionizes how we think about these questions, revealing the remarkable truth about the benefits of being in, on, under, or simply near water. Combining cutting-edge neuroscience with compelling personal stories from top athletes, leading scientists, military veterans, and gifted artists, he shows how proximity to water can improve performance, increase calm, diminish anxiety, and increase professional success.

To help save baby turtles, add the items into your cart and type the phrase "Save a turtle" into the order comments box (at the bottom of the check out screen).

Orders that include a copy of Blue Mind will be shipped on the book's release date--July 22, 2014--or will be held at Bookshop Santa Cruz if you choose the pick-up in store option.
