An interesting thought experiment,
This review is from: The World Without Us (Paperback)
The basic premise that underlies this book is actually rather interesting - what would happen to the world if humans were no longer here - not destroyed in some catastrophic fashion that would also impact on the rest of the world, but just died rapidly. It explores a range of aspects of human life and plots what would happen to them over time. While being very readable I am not sure that the whole book matches the quality of the initial idea. I ended up feeling that it was a missed opportunity.
