A distinctive voice that deserves to be heard
on 19 September 2012
Anyone who has heard Mark Avery speak, or who heard any of his many interviews on the Radio 4 Today programme when he was the RSPB's Director of Conservation, will immediately recognise the voice behind this book. He writes just the way he speaks, with fluency, wit, and above all conviction. Even those who don't agree with everything he says (and there is much contentious material in this book) will find this an entertaining and thought-provoking read. It really should be required reading for anyone involved in conservation - or indeed politics - in the UK and beyond. The voice of Mark Avery deserves to be heard much more widely, and I look forward to his next book!
