Product description


"In every case, the presence and personality of the endangered animals rise off the page - even when the authors don't manage to find them. The writing may be witty, but this book is a sobering reminder of what a very great deal we have to lose" (Independent on Sunday)

"This is life or death stuff, but Adams is a writer who chooses not to shake his finger at the reader. He fails completely in the self-righteous-piety department. Instead he invites us to enter a conspiracy of laughter and caring" (Los Angeles Times)

"It is a book one reads in a rush, always looking forward to the next perverse paragraph, wise insight or felicitous phrase" (The Canberra Times)

"Last Chance to See brings out the best in Adams' writing ... constantly springing on the reader the kind of dizzying shift in perspective that was the stock in trade of Hitchhiker'" (The Listener)

"The funniest serious book on the market." (Amazon.co.uk reader review)

Book Description

Douglas Adams and Mark Carwardine lead us on an unforgettable journey in search of the world's most endangered species
