Reviews

"As a rule economists understand economics, ecologists the environment, and educators teaching. David Orr is one of the rare authors who understands all three, and in these finely etched and admirable essays he delivers the revolutionary credo necessary, in my opinion, for the long-term survival of our species."--Edward O. Wilson "What does one say about a book that is arguably one of the most important books written in recent years, perhaps ever?"--Conservation Biology "Earth in Mind is a book for all who are committed to a restructuring of institutions of education."--Wild Earth "David Orr is a seasoned doer as well as thinker, whose primary concern--education--could be the very pivot on which our society turns back toward life. If such dramatic and necessary change in our teaching and learning does begin, much will be owed to the ideas herein."--Stephanie Mills "author of Epicurean Simplicity " "Justly removing the hide with the hair, David Orr here examines the calamitous 'success' of the industrial economy and of the educational system that subserves it....Earth in Mind is also a manual of ideas and possibilities for those who want to work toward a better end than the one now in view."--Wendell Berry "author of The Distant Land "
