Description

Best known today for The Weather Makers, his #1 international bestseller, Tim Flannery is one of the world's most influential scientists, a foremost expert on climate change credited with discovering more species than Charles Darwin. But Flannery didn't come to his knowledge overnight. With its selection of exhilarating essays and articles written over the past 25 years, An Explorer's Notebook charts the evolution of a young scientist doing fieldwork in remote locations to the major thinker who has changed the way we think about global warming. In over thirty pieces, Flannery writes about his journeys in the jungles of New Guinea and Indonesia, about the extraordinary people he met and the species he discovered. He writes about matters as wide-ranging as love, insects, population, water and the stresses we put on the environment. He shows us how we can better predict our future by understanding the profound history of life on Earth. And he chronicles the seismic shift in the world's attitude toward climate change. An Explorer's Notebook is classic Flannery-wide-ranging, eye-opening science, conveyed with richly detailed storytelling. "Tim Flannery is in the league of all-time great explorers like Dr. David Livingstone."-Sir David Attenborough
