David Suzuki's autobiography limns a life dedicated to making the world a better place. The book expands on the early years covered in "Metamorphosis" and continues to the present, when, at age 70, Suzuki reflects on his entire life -- and his hopes for the future.

The book begins with his life-changing experience of racism interned in a World War II concentration camp, and goes on to discuss his teenage years, his college and postgraduate experiences in the U.S., and his career as a geneticist and then as the host of "The Nature of Things."

With characteristic candor and passion, Suzuki describes how he became a leading environmentalist, writer, and thinker; the establishment of the David Suzuki Foundation; his world travels and meetings with luminaries like Nelson Mandela and the Dalai Lama; and the abiding role of nature and family in his life. David Suzuki is an intimate and inspiring look at a modern-day visionary.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from SUZUKI AUTOBIOGRAPHY I am the daughter of Daisy. David writes a very true story of an extremely embarassing period of Canadian History and the effects on himself and others like him. My mother was greatly harmed during and after the war from the prejudices of both the "white" and Janapese Canadian population, being of mixed parentage. Maybe we can learn from this. Well done. Excellent read. PS Keep on saving our world David.
