"The Future of Life" by Edward O. Wilson

Our book for May will be "The Future of Life" by Edward O. Wilson.

One of the world’s most important scientists, Edward O. Wilson is also an abundantly talented writer who has twice won the Pulitzer Prize. 

In this, his most personal and timely book to date, he assesses the precarious state of our environment, examining the mass extinctions occurring in our time and the natural treasures we are about to lose forever. 

Yet, rather than eschewing doomsday prophesies, he spells out a specific plan to save our world while there is still time. His vision is a hopeful one, as economically sound as it is environmentally necessary. 

Eloquent, practical and wise, this book should be read and studied by anyone concerned with the fate of the natural world.

    An unforeseen and unwelcome event means I can't attend tonight. I'm so very sorry. Enjoy the discussion: I know I am superfluous. And please vote on a book for July!
