Audible Editor Reviews

One of the issues that will never go away is that of the well-being of planet Earth and how humans can best preserve it. Arising out of this topic lately has been the buzzword Biodiversity. A sharp and clever word, sure, but it’s a challenging topic that bears more than its fair share of debate. To help listeners get a handle on biodiversity and some of the major problems plaguing our planet, biologist John Spicer has created this easy-to-follow and engaging audiobook. Performed with a friendly and gentle delivery from experienced narrator Miranda Nation, this is a great primer for those wanting to know more about the planet they call home.

Publisher's Summary

Along the way, he provides valuable insight into the impact humans have had upon the earth and its inhabitants, whether efforts such as ecotourism really help, and how scientists and economists calculate the "value" of biodiversity.

    Story
    "Great and comprehensive biodiversity overview"
    What made the experience of listening to Biodiversity: Bolinda Beginner Guides the most enjoyable?

    The story is set out logically and clearly and gives a great overview of all basic aspects off bio diversity. I got this book to get a better understanding of issues involved with this and this one, like most Bolinda guides I have tried, does exactly what it says on the tin.
