    Story
    (26)

    Today we understand that our world is infinitely richer than was ever previously guessed. Yet it is so ravaged by human activity that half its species could be gone by the end of the century. These two contrasting truths - unexpected magnificence and underestimated peril - have become compellingly clear during the past two decades of research on biological diversity. In his dazzlingly intelligent book, Wilson describes the treasures of the natural world we are about to lose forever and how we can save them.

    Lucas says: "A scientifically-grounded case for the environment"
    "Great text, poor reading"
    Overall

    Wilson is a strong interpreter of the natural world and humanity's place in it. This book is a great introduction to the basic science and conservational imperatives of biodiversity for the layperson.

    The performance, however, was flat and full of distracting mispronunciations throughout--and not just of the scientific words. The review above extolling the performance was done by someone who didn't know the difference.
