Not as an audiobook... It's better to read.
EO wilson is fascinating.
The narrator is an actor, not a narrator. I think there is a difference.
Some people can do both.
It is hard to follow. His enunciation and emphasis are marbled.
Paul Greenberg is a very good pop science writer. For someone with no expertise on the topic, he gathered an impressive cast of characters to lend weight to his stories and conclusions.
His conclusions about New England groundfish management is completely dated, as he claimed they have succeeded, where recent information has shown they failed in trying to control the populations of codfish in any meaningful way.
I was very interested by his discussions of fish farming; it's costs, benefits, and options for the future, but his conclusions about wild fish harvesting were not very realistic.
It is very apparent that although he is extremely curious, but he is prone to nostalgic idealism in face of contrary facts.
When I listened to this as a curious persons tale of discovery, I rank it high. When I rank him as a science writer, maybe a bit lower... he just needs to be taken with a grain of salt.
Overall, I rank this book highly. I'd read another book from Paul Greenberg.
