    A Superb Book That Points our Way as a Species Into the Future

    Edward Wilson's book 'The Future of Life' is a lucid, superbly crafted book from one of America's most famous scientists. The scope that this novel takes is excellent, moving in from the state of the global to as small a microcosm as a single branch of a tree in the rain forest. He never talks down to his audience, and the writing flows along a steady clip. In short, while it may be a bit outdated when it comes to some data concerning things such as global warming (it was written a few years ago), 'The Future of Life' is a book of the highest order, one that shines with a great love for humanity and to be read and reread for years with one's family.

    'MUST-READ' Book for those who want to Know

    I've been a close observer of mankind's relentless destruction of our ONLY HOME for over 40 years. Mother Nature has been pretty forgiving up until now, but we're pushing many areas beyond their survival point. That's not very wise of us, is it? If you want to know how the rest of your life, your children's lives, and their children's lives will be effected in the near future, read this book. It's not a plesant picture, but it's about time someone collected and printed the truth for all to see. 'Environmental Concern' seems to come and go like a fad, but the real problems are only made worse by our continuing refusal to work WITH nature. Are our children willing OR able to pay the bills we're running up for them? We can begin by paying attention to the daily environmental news. Those scattered 'facts' are not free-standing events, they are all part of the interwoven moasic of life, and we MUST begin to Understand, Care, and Act before it's too late.
