5.0 out of 5 stars What they said about Silent Spring Revisited, 15 Dec 2012
By 
This review is from: Silent Spring Revisited (Natural History Narratives) (Hardcover)
What they said about Silent Spring Revisited:

"Essential reading for all contemporary environmentalists... A rich and important record of the triumphs and disasters. Anyone who has grown up enthralled by nature, will enjoy the young Conor's early experiences of wildlife and how the interest turned into a healthy obsession."

"If Nick Hornby loved nature, he might write a book like this."
Martin Harper, RSPB Director of Conservation

"An autobiographical strand gives a human aspect to the narrative, and there are a lot of fascinating details... the author succeeds, with a readable book which refreshed my memory."
BTO News

"A trip down memory lane... a history lesson it certainly is, but stodgy it is not. Anecdotes and details bring the decades to life... It is very important that we have this book's clear record of what happened."
Devon Birds

"A lively read... what makes Jameson's work especially enjoyable is the personal slant... This is a book that needs to be read."
Birdwatching magazine

"A fine writer, who weaves together an artist's sensibility with a conservationist's sense of reality... a vital read."
Birdwatch magazine

"Jameson uses Rachel Carson's 1962 work Silent Spring as a focus for reflection on conservation and environmentalism in the decades since then."
Nature

"Some lovely stories, and I really enjoyed dipping into the years and remembering. A delightful pot pourri".
Mark Avery

"Lifted by the personal notes into an entertaining and easy read."
Birds magazine

"A tale worthy of Edgar Allan Poe at his hair-raising best... every conservationist, every naturalist and every environmentalist should read Silent Spring Revisited... it should become a standard school textbook if the planet is to be saved."
Kentish Times
