By Joe Harkness
This book was given to me by the publisher in exchange for an honest review. Bird Therapy is the tale of two journeys. Firstly, it is a journey from addiction and depression to a healthy life with the help of bird watching. Secondly, it is a journey of discovery in which Joe Harkness seeks to understand that recovery and place it into a broader context. This book is a combination of; personal narrative, psychological study, and journalistic endeavour. It seeks to explore the role of bird watching in a person’s mental well-being. It is an engaging read.
