From the Inside Flap:

PRAISE FOR THE PREVIOUS EDITION:

"An extraordinary, vitally important book. It shows what a complex and magnificent world we have inherited, how it works, what bad stewards we have been, and, most important, how we can mend our ways before it is too late and we find ourselves breeding like greenfly on a cinder. It is, in fact, a sort of blueprint for our survival."—Gerald Durrell

"An overwhelming book."—Time Out

"A remarkable, comprehensive view of the balance of folly and wisdom."—The Guardian

"Read this book. Don't just read it: buy it! Present a copy to your college library; send one to your congressman; if you lend your own copy, get it back! If any book can teach a nation how to control its collective self interest, it is [this book]."—New Scientist
