James NestorAuthor & Journalist
James Nestor is an author and journalist who has written for Outside, Scientific American, The Atlantic, Dwell, The New York Times, and many other publications.

His new book, Breath: The New Science Of A Lost Art, explores the million-year-long history of how the human species has lost the ability to breathe properly and why we’re suffering from a laundry list of maladies—snoring, sleep apnea, asthma, autoimmune disease, allergies—because of it.
