- The New Science of a Lost Art
- Written by: James Nestor
- Narrated by: James Nestor
- Length: 7 hrs and 18 mins
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. Journalist James Nestor travels the world to figure out what went wrong and how to fix it. Nestor tracks down men and women exploring the hidden science behind ancient breathing practices like Pranayama, Sudarshan Kriya, and Tummo and teams up with pulmonary tinkerers to scientifically test long-held beliefs about how we breathe.

Great book on a personal account of someone with not only breathing problems, though developmental problems as well. The search for the solution to these problems and alot of the issues that people face in their own health mentally and physically. Real world scientific data combined with the ancient studies of the most essential aspect of human life recounted by the author with a personal investment into the findings brought about.
