This book is a must read for any biologist or any one interested in conserving life on this planet. Wilson has a great writing style that really explores life and science while keeping it from getting inundated with science jargon. The last half of the book dealt with humans and our destructive ways, which was a big downer. The last chapter was beautifully written and was very Thoreau-esque, speaking to humanity and our deeply ingrained history with the natural world.
