This imaginative depiction of the world without human beings is truly astounding! not only do we receive brief history of man, but also what history would be like without man. one of the most enthralling and thought provoking books I have ever read. I truly could not put it down. The imagery used creates a world never thought of before. My respect for nature has always been high, but Weisman opened my eyes to things I had never imagined or thought possible. truly remarkable, a must read!

After reading some of the reviews... It was with great expectations I read this book. What a disappointment. It comes across as we humans have so poisoned mother earth we don't deserve to be here and after we are gone nature will reclaim all and make it pure again. The Garden of Eden will re-emerge and all harmony will return when man is gone. Except for maybe some of the poisons we created like spent nuclear fuel. On but nature will even make that pure again without our meddling even being involved. If you hate the human animal you will love this book. If you celebrate man's creations appreciate the environments we have improved and marvel at what we have achieved as a species save your money on this one.
