    Thanks for your feedback!

    I found this book absolutely captivating and horrifying. Horrifying because of the impact we have had and are likely to continue to have on our home planet earth and the legacy we'd leave behind should we for whatever reason (but hopefully not) disappear tomorrow! The author appears to have researched the topics covered extremely well and present a speculative, but convincing and science based, hypothesis on natures response to our sudden disappearance. This is one of the most thought provoking books I've ever read!

    Must-read for urbanists & environmentalists alike

    This book paints an elegant, poetic picture of an Earth without human curation. It is an excellent and thorough exploration of what the world would be like post-hominid. My only criticism is that for a book written in the language of science, and global in reach, the editor converted all metric measurements and weights to the imperial system, which cheapens the impact for world readers. Further, size comparisons, such as Connecticut to Cyprus, are literally meaningless to anyone who isn't an American.
