The first review of Technobiophilia is by George Davis in Psychology TodayHanging Out in Nature and in Cyberspace begins with a description of the man who sits outside most days at a picnic table under the trees not far from Davis’s building and works on his laptop.  This reminds me of Howard Rheingold‘s outdoor office, pictured here.

Davis makes the interesting observation that technobiophilia is ‘a benign psychological state’. I’m pleased to see that he thinks the book will appeal to researchers as well as being ‘a good read for general audiences’. Great news! That’s what I was aiming to achieve.
