Tim Flannery is one of the world's great thinkers, environmental scientists and writers. Sir David Attenborough once described him as being 'in the league of the all-time great explorers like Dr David Livingstone.' This definitive collection of his work brings together thirty years of essays, speeches and occasional writing on palaeontology, mammology, environmental science and history, including the science of climate change and the challenges and opportunities we face in addressing this issue, so critical for all of us.

Reviews for Life: Selected Writings

'No one tells it better than Tim Flannery.' * David Suzuki * 'Flannery synthesises a vast range of scientific studies and a decent selection of historical and cultural writings, leavening those with his own forceful ideas.' * New York Times Book Review * 'Flannery is a writer who sneezes at political correctness and charges into the densely land-mined territory of the biological determinants of human behaviour.' * Washington Post * 'Flannery is a master storyteller, with an eye for the revealing detail.' * Australian Book Review * 'This man is a national treasure, and we should heed his every word.' * Sunday Telegraph *
