A Life on Our Planet: My Witness Statement and a Vision for the Future, by David Attenborough

hopeful informative inspiring reflective medium-paced

5.0

I am very biased, as other then Steve Backshall and deadly 60, Attenborough's documentaries were my first introduction into seeing the extraordinary world we live in which ultimately shaped my decision to study conservation biology and ecology at university. 

The book has the eloquence with which Attenborough always portrays his views and is able to take you through first the crushing sense of doom that often hangs over thoughts of environmental change and global warming, before inspiring hope that change is happening and all is not lost. It is powerful, awe inspiring and enthralling reading about his life and it only enhances the admiration and love I have for him and his work.
