5.0 out of 5 stars Sadly relevant, 14 Mar. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Silent Spring (Penguin Modern Classics) (Paperback)
When reading this book, you cannot help but be filled with an innate sense of sadness, in part due to the horrific tales which Carson tells (all of which are a necessity in order for the book to hit home) and in part due to the fact that many of these tales still seem relevant today and most of the others, with a little modification, can be applied to much of the environmental damage our species is causing today.
A highly relevant book, which is very touching, Carsons poetic writing style lends itself to a very easy read, this coupled with solid information and hard-hitting examples of the damage done make this book an absolute must read for everyone. I firmly believe that every politician & world leader should be made to read this book and remind them of the dangers and consequences their actions have on the environment and perhaps make them think that little bit deeper about the consequences of deforestation, of removing native untouched habitat and of course of the use of harsh & unnatural chemicals in day to day life.
I cannot recommend this book enough, it does make you look at things differently and that is ultimately one of the most important things.
