To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Way ahead of his time, Livingston "tells it like it is" and confronts the reader with what is obvious: mankind, as the most successful species on the planet, has removed itself from the natural world and, in so doing, has sown the seeds it's own destruction. A must read for any young adult and anyone concerned about the destructive human footprint. Livingston addresses issues far more concerning that climate change. Buy.
I've read a mountain of books on ecological history, and Livingstone blew my mind. He was decades ahead of his time. He was a misanthrope, and he had few kind words for mainstream eco-activist organizations. But, he provided important answers to the question of how we got to where we are today. I also recommend his book Rogue Primate.
