'Jameson... has skillfully stiched together a narrative that reveals the highs and lows of conservation, and will, I am sure, convince many that the good fight is still worth it. Birdwatch A clear and concise historical overview of the failures and successes of the conservation movement since the 1960s; and it will rightly find a place on many a conservationist's bookshelf.' -- British Birds
'In Silent Spring Revisited, Conor Mark Jameson's vividly told, beautifully written account of the environmentalist movement of the last fifty years and his own involvement in it, the author takes his place among the pre-eminent nature writers of our times. His clear, vivid writing skillfully weaves political and cultural history, personal observation and passionate advocacy for the conservation of our diminishing wildlife to create a book that will endure in the annals of natural history.' -- Marie Winn, author of Red-Tails in Love and Central Park in the Dark
'Your book was riveting. It gave rise to several different emotions within me, Sadness/anger/despair/frustration/enthusiasm. Wonderfully written, intersperced with humour. Factual - it must have taken you forever to do the research. Cracking good stuff and needed to be said. All you need to do now is to get everyone who matters to read it.' --John McGlashan, Farmer
