#BookBday Bonus: THE SIXTH EXTINCTION

#BookBday Bonus: THE SIXTH EXTINCTION

We've got another special Book Birthday this week: THE SIXTH EXTINCTION by Elizabeth Kolbert, which started as a two-part series in the New Yorker.

Over the last half a billion years, there have been five mass extinctions, when the diversity of life on earth suddenly contracted. Scientists are currently monitoring the sixth extinction, predicted to be the most devastating since the asteroid impact that wiped out the dinosaurs. The cause? Humans! (GULP.)

THE SIXTH EXTINCTION has FOUR outstanding starred pre-publication reviews and major media coverage is starting off with a Big Bang:
     * A front page rave New York Times Book Review from former Vice President Al Gore 
     * A New York Times daily review by Michiko Kakutani
     * Appearances on CBS "This Morning" and "The Daily Show with Jon Stewart"
     * Interviews on NPR's "All Things Considered" and "Fresh Air"
     * Reviews to come in Scientific American Magazine, The Economist, The Wall Street Journal, The Washington Post, and many more

Praise for THE SIXTH EXTINCTION:

“'People change the world,' Kolbert writes, and she vividly presents the science and history of the current crisis. Her extensive travels in researching this book, and her insightful treatment of both the history and the science all combine to make THE SIXTH EXTINCTION an invaluable contribution to our understanding of present circumstances, just as the paradigm shift she calls for is sorely needed.”
New York Times Book Review by Al Gore

“New Yorker staff writer Kolbert accomplishes an amazing feat in her latest book, which superbly blends the depressing facts...with stellar writing to produce a text that is accessible, witty, scientifically accurate, and impossible to put down.”
Publishers Weekly, starred review

“Rendered with rare, resolute, and resounding clarity, Kolbert’s compelling and enlightening report forthrightly addresses the most significant topic of our lives.”
Booklist, starred review

“A highly significant eye-opener rich in facts and enjoyment.”
Kirkus Reviews, starred review

"This solid, engaging, multidisciplinary science title should appeal to a broad range of science enthusiasts, particularly those interested in environmental conservation.”
Library Journal, starred review
(also featured in Neal Wyatt's RA Crossroads review)
