Really liked the narrative. This is a true story, and although it is not a true academic work, it sheds a lot of, sorry, light on the subject of light as it pertains to the human animal: its effects and uses. I assumed this book would be crap, so I was pleasantly surprised by both an actual narrative and information garnered in a mostly scientific way, accidental as the light experiments were.
This was a very interesting book, although much of it was over my head due to a lack of medical knowledge and biological processes I still gleaned some very neat things about how natural light stimulates and effects our health and overall well being. Now off to the garden to get some light and grow wholesome foods... oh wait its still winter.
