    This collection of essays about famous and potent environmental activists, thinkers, educators, and visionaries contains a remarkable amount of biography that anyone could think inspiring Each person is living a life of integrity and vision, not only changing the world but genuinely being that change at the same time Any environmentalist minded person might find their stories and their thinking interesting, at very least.As for me, I found the essays a bit tiresome to read I was amazed, and I This collection of essays about famous and potent environmental activists, thinkers, educators, and visionaries contains a remarkable amount of biography that anyone could think inspiring Each person is living a life of integrity and vision, not only changing the world but genuinely being that change at the same time Any environmentalist minded person might find their stories and their thinking interesting, at very least.As for me, I found the essays a bit tiresome to read I was amazed, and I admire these people so much, but I confess to being overwhelmed and daunted by the extent of their success, and by the overwhelming challenges they and we still face in the world The read made me tired, and I was even less motivated to work on my own Of course, this was the exact opposite of the expected outcome when I finished the book.I am so thankful that these people are out there I had to come face to face with my own laziness and relative apathy as I moved through their stories each of which in itself could be expanded to fill an entire book As I became discouraged, I became everthankful that there are people out there with such bravery and vision.And this hope is what I ultimately took away from the book, even as I moved back into my conventional, ambiguously un sustainable lifestyle There are people successfully fighting the good fight while the rest of us are half waking from our slumbers

    Really enjoyed this book It was a source of motivation and inspiration towards sustainability Great insight and ideas Although a little dated I just discovered this book recently thanks to my sister , it was still very relevant.

    This book was included in a list required reading for a 500 level conservation biology course It is a compilation of several contemporary conservationists telling their stories of working on population issues in third world countries, stopping nuclear waste incinerators and becoming an influential member in the Earth First movement I would have to say there some stories I wassympathetic towards than others These are difficult issues, I wish there waswisdom

    I really like the latter part of this book for some reason first few stories didn t really interest me that muchI sort of glossed over them but I really liked the whole environmental economics parts of it also liked reading the people s backstories those were probably the best part otherwise it was alright.
