"Hardman is a no-nonsense narrator"

Hardman is a no-nonsense narrator. She is brisk and practical, offering advice to those suffering from mental health problems and their friends and family. Those who want lengthy descriptions of foliage or poetic evocations of rugged terrain will have to go elsewhere. Some may find her rapid pace rather knackering. Others will find much that can help them or their loved ones. As Hardman puts it, her book is more manifesto than meditation on nature. It is a manifesto that, right now, feels sorely needed.
