Book Description

22 April 2010

When frontline BBC news reporter David Shukman switched beat from world affairs to environment in 2003, he feared he might be in for a dull life. He couldn't have been more wrong. His new job has taken him to every corner of the earth: journeying up the fabled North West Passage in the Arctic, chasing after loggers in the Amazon and battling through plastic waste in the Pacific Ocean, getting trapped in Siberian blizzards along the way.

Reporting Live from the End of the World charts Shukman's extraordinary adventures, in the process providing a fascinating eye-witness account of the state of the planet. Wonderfully written and often very funny, the book will be loved by travel, science or environment readers alike.

Product Description

Review

Whether camping on ice sheets in Greenland in a tent designed by Nasa, being eaten alive by insects up the Amazon or pursuing illegal loggers in Brazil, Shukman's account has all the eco-action you could want (Herald)

Shukman talks a lot of common sense (The Scotsman 2010-08-25)

It's vivid, compelling and relays some singular experiences... urgent, alarming reading. (Andrzej Lukowski Metro 2010-05-05)

Book Description

Reporting Live... tells the extraordinary adventures of the BBC's world-roving environment correspondent. Wonderfully written in a style somewhere between Bill Bryson and From Our Own Correspondent, Shukman's book is insightful, engaging and often very funny.

4.0 out of 5 stars A good read but not a happy one 9 July 2010
By Leofric
Format:Paperback
This book is well written and an interesting slant on the climate change debate. Obviously David Shukman often has the feeling of the messenger being blamed for the bad news. He makes it clear he came to the subject as a skeptic and he is trying to present an even handed report of the world and the science as he finds it. This though does not leave the reader feeling much optimism that we will be able to solve the problems the scientists are pointing out.
David Shukman only gives limited information about himself although possibly a bit too much about his travel sickness.
Overall, I am glad I read it. Perhaps I should ask, will it make a difference to what I do........?
