5.0 out of 5 stars What an extraordinary life!, 7 Nov. 2003
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Life on Air (Paperback)
I was thrilled with this book, and find myself admiring David Attenborough and thoroughly envious of the way he has lived his life. A true inspiration. The book is written in the same engaging way that Sir David is famed for.
The insight into many of his projects and achievements gives a new perspective to some of his remarkable work, and you truly cannot believe the things he has lived through - what many of us can only dream of. I am a left with the sensation that I should stride out into the world and simply do what I love.
The book chronicles (in anecdotes, stories and thoughts) Sir David's career from beginning to present time, providing both insight into the broadcasting (TV) industry through time, as well as his many adventures with the natural world. His most famous and loved work is described in detail (for example, Life on Earth, The Living Planet) and you have to marvel at the memory of the man. I loved the two brief sections of priceless photographs of his experiences (wished there were more).
A positive, inspiring biography...if you have any inclinations to charge off exploring the world, this book will not persuade you otherwise!
