E.O. Wilson's newest book champions the idea of setting one half the earth's surface aside to preserve a significant portion of the wealth of biodiversity that is currently disappearing so rapidly. Narrator Jonathan Hogan's slow, clear baritone is easy to follow and reminiscent of Wilson's own unhurried presentation style. As always, Wilson's perspective is founded in his concern about the little creatures--from viruses to beetles--that do most of the work that allows ecosystems to function. Hogan's pacing is good, and he has very little trouble with the often arcane names--common and Latin--of the sweeping range of life Wilson discusses. This audiobook contains more excellent thinking by one of the nation's most prominent biologists and proponents of biodiversity preservation.
