‘It does not disappoint. The new Life on Earth is as glorious as the first’
‘A beautiful and wide ranging work. The breadth of natural history covered is extraordinary and mesmerising. Life on Earth is still breathtakingly rich, and we would know far less about it were it not for Attenborough’s wonderful skills of communication over the years: our cultural and scientific lives would be poorer without him’
‘This natural history masterpiece offers a spectacular snapshot of a once-wild planet’

There is grandeur in this view of life, with its several powers, having been originally breathed into a few forms or into one; and that, whilst this planet has gone cycling on according to the fixed law of gravity, from so simple a beginning endless forms most beautiful and most wonderful have been, and are being, evolved. (Charles Darwin, Origin of Species)
The structure of the book logically sets out the different milestones in the evolutionary story. The book use both fossil and modern examples to show key physical and behavioural adaptations. I can't really think of any flaws with Life on Earth. The scale of the kind of story it wants to tell us truly impressive.
A relaxing but educational listening experience and one not to be missed by either fans of Sir David or fans of the series.
