Put our species in historical context,
This review is from: Confessions of an Eco Sinner: Travels to find where my stuff comes from (Eden Project Books) (Kindle Edition)
I can only recommend this book. Nicely structured with facts from writers' experience, each chapter concluded with a short story of an individual citizen of the world.
Lots of facts that you can think about, it triggers you to think about yourself and your personal behaviour. It triggers the questions about what to change, what to adapt, what to keep in order we can make our living on planet Earth sustainable.
After covering various fields of life, the reader get the sugar at the end - writer's wide personal thinking about the 'naked ape' - homo sapiens. The species that transformed the planet in last few ten thousand years as any other species couldn't. Where have we been? Where are we going? How to position ourselves in the historical time stream? Read it and think about it. It's worth.
