With characteristic candor and passion, he describes his growing consciousness of the natural world and humankind's precarious place in it; his travels throughout the world and his meetings with international leaders, from Nelson Mandela to the Dalai Lama; and the abiding role of nature and family in his life. "David Suzuki" is an intimate and inspiring look at one of the most uncompromising people on the planet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from "Inspirational" Reading this book was like opening the doors to a totally new world.It inspires you to travel around the world to meet great people who are incredibly close to nature. As a student of holistic nutrition, this aspect of the world is very important to me and David Suzuki truly is an amazing author and person who teaches us great things about the world and he's not afraid to say what he thinks! I have found to have many things in common with him, such as the love and appreciation of aboriginal people who can teach us more about the environement and our lives than any other educated person. As well as travelling to learn more about other peoples cultures and lifestyle. I'm very interested in purchasing more books related to my field of work and the environement.
