Reviews

"Rainforest promises a series of environmental news stories by a far-ranging journalist, but this book delivers much more because of Tony Juniper's high credibility. He has professional experience in both international environmentalism and public service. The book is persuasive and timely."
-- "Natural Areas Journal"

"A thoughtful exploration, scientific and political, of the ecological web from raindrop to global climactic system...[Juniper] writes with a lightly worn but deep understanding of ecology, conservation biology, and population dynamics. He lucidly explains such matters as how to enlist rural populations in sustaining rainforests, identifying a host of big-picture problems such as poverty and political corruption, and making a strong case for 'the idea that in combating climate change there [is] no more effective step than halting deforestation.' A sturdy primer for anyone interested in learning about tropical rainforests and why it's essential to keep them healthy."-- "Kirkus"

"[Juniper] tackles the rain forest as a topic from multiple angles in this heavily researched, smartly written, and singularly important title...This is science writing at its best, an immersive read with a powerful message about why what happens in one part of the world matters to all of us."-- "Booklist"
