3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Louis Crowe on 5 May 2009
Format: Paperback
I found this book quite inspiring. It is visually stunning with great photos but it is the interviews which make it noteworthy. She rambled across the world interviewing interesting people who had "made a difference" in their societies. The interviews are frank and in places raw with people describing how they did what they did. It's clear you don't need to be monied or clever to change our world. Passion, commitment and just doing it seem much more important.

It is particularly relevant to those of us searching for meaning in our lives. The stories will undoubtedly make you smile and may even push us to do something more with our lives. Enjoy it!

2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By J. Callanan on 6 July 2009
Format: Paperback
One wild life is a glorious book - a real inspirational read. Clare Mulvany writes wonderfully and while many of the people who she interviews on her travels are truely heroic, She manages to capture them in a very real way - we get their fears, their doubts, their failures as well as their successes. While the people featured may be dealing with very difficult even tragic scenarios, this book doesn't dwell on this - rather it concentrates on the difference these people are making, on the hope they are providing.
This is a book that one can dip into for a few minutes when one needs to be uplifted - or to sit and read at one sitting. It is a book that leaves one trying to answer the poet Mary Oliver's question (which provides the title to the book) "So tell me, what is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?"
