BETTER LIVING THROUGH BIRDING Notes from a Black Man in the Natural World

by | Read by Christian Cooper

Biography & Memoir • 10.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2023

If you're aware of who Christian Cooper is, it's likely because of the confrontation between him and a white woman walking her dog in Central Park--a confrontation that went viral and caught national attention. Listening to this compelling memoir, narrated in Cooper's gently raspy voice, we learn much more about him: the great joy he takes in his life's passion, birding, yes, but also his journey of coming to terms with himself as a gay man and his deep love of science-fiction TV, movies, and comics. With his well-paced delivery, Cooper takes us along on adventures near and far, from growing up on Long Island to birding obsessively during the spring migration and eventually traveling the world. Birdsong between chapters is a delightful bonus. J.M.D. © AudioFile 2023, Portland, Maine [Published: JUNE 2023]
