5.0 out of 5 stars Fascinating, awe-inspiring and sometimes even funny, 2 Aug. 2011
This review is from: Do We Need Pandas?: The Uncomfortable Truth About Biodiversity (Paperback)
I have never come across a book that explains 'Biodiversity' as profoundly and illustratively as Ken Thompson's 'Do we need Pandas?'. Strictly based on proven research, this well-reasoned book offers an incredible wealth of knowledge and insight about the diversity of life on our planet. Thompson managed to accumulate a wide array of fascinating facts drawn from the most recent scientific studies and put together a highly readable account. Even though I am a practising botanist myself, I still have learnt an awful lot. In fact, my view and understanding of the importance and fragility of 'Life on Earth' has been profoundly deepened, if, paradoxically, mainly by Thompson's fascinating demonstration of how little we actually know about `who else' we share our planet with.
I would recommend this book to anyone who wants a factual and reliable account on what is currently happening to our environment, or better, our 'life support system'. Most of all, 'Do we need Pandas?' should be a must-read for all politicians and billionaires.
