How do you stay inspired? This simple question Lori Robinson asked is one many of us have probably asked ourselves. The answers given in this book are as diverse as the conservationists interviewed. This is a well-organized book, and I appreciated the summary of each conservationist's work. Besides learning the source of motivation for these leaders in wildlife preservation, this book is a great overview of the state of conservation work. Read and be inspired!

Insight into our future can be found in 50 different conversations from world leaders. It can be read one at a time or together, which was appealing.
