Now, for the first time, the best of McKibben's essays--fiery, magical, and infused with his uniquely soulful investigations of modern life--are collected in a single volume,The Bill McKibben Reader.Whether meditating on today's golden age in radio, the natural place of biting black flies in our lives, or the patriotism of a grandmother fighting to get corporate money out of politics, McKibben inspires us to become better caretakers of the Earth--and of one another. *The Plain Dealer(Cleveland ) **Michael Pollan
I think that this book would be great to be read a few pages here a few pages there. Preferably these pages would be from a seperate part of the book and thus on a seperate theme. He has so much worthwhile to say, I just wish he had been given a better vehicle.
