Description

First published in 1962, Silent Spring can singlehandedly be credited with sounding the alarm and raising awareness of humankind's collective impact on its own future through chemical pollution. No other book has so strongly influenced the environmental conscience of Americans and the world at large. "Silent Spring came as a cry in the wilderness, a deeply felt, thoroughly researched, and brilliantly written argument that changed the course of history."-Vice President Al Gore

Professional reviews

"When it first came out 45 years ago, SILENT SPRING ignited a firestorm of concern about pesticide and herbicide use, and the chemicals' long-term effects on global ecology. Widely credited with ensuring the ban of DDT, the book's warning of consequences remains fresh today. Unfortunately, Kaiulani Lee treats her listeners with condescension. Her breathy, sibilant voice stops just short of a lisp. She ever so slowly and softly reads the text, as if to children. While the listener would expect the spoken production to refresh the still relevant work, instead it has the effect of minimizing its importance. Carson and her readers deserve more. R.L.L.
