A couple of good stories, but overall reads like of a textbook Even though this is an older book, it has much to say concerning climate change See my full review of this book on Sustainablog Some good sentiments but overall not super inspiring or even that informative There were two main articles I enjoyed, one that highlighted the interconnectedness of being by explaining the eco system of a South American tree The other I enjoyed so much I can t remember it. I usually enjoy essays, but an entire book of essays about the environment was just too much for me.
