One of the issues that will never go away is that of the well-being of planet Earth and how humans can best preserve it. Arising out of this topic lately has been the buzzword Biodiversity. A sharp and clever word, sure, but it's a challenging topic that bears more than its fair share of debate. To help listeners get a handle on biodiversity and some of the major problems plaguing our planet, biologist John Spicer has created this easy-to-follow and engaging audiobook. Performed with a friendly and gentle delivery from experienced narrator Miranda Nation, this is a great primer for those wanting to know more about the planet they call home.
Biologist John Spicer shows how closely our future is linked with that of biodiversity while navigating listeners through some key problems facing our planet, including mass extinctions, population explosions, habitat destruction, and pollution. Along the way, he provides valuable insight into the impact humans have had upon the earth and its inhabitants, whether efforts such as ecotourism really help, and how scientists and economists calculate the "value" of biodiversity. Passionately argued, this book is a must for anyone who has an appreciation for nature and wants to understand the real issues at stake in preserving it.

The story is set out logically and clearly and gives a great overview of all basic aspects off bio diversity. I got this book to get a better understanding of issues involved with this and this one, like most Bolinda guides I have tried, does exactly what it says on the tin.
