Media reviews
The essays are united by the authors' passionate commitment to preserving the natural diversity, both genetic and esthetic, of the earth's myriad plant and animal species. As this book demonstrates ... when we kill these other species, either directly or by destroying their habitats, we kill a bit of ourselves. --Dorion Sagan, The New York Times Book Review (review of the first edition)
