I though The Future of Life was actually a decent book. I sometimes find it hard to read books about science or just to read in general but this book held my attention really well. Largely in part that it discuss real time problems that will or are affecting me. Throughout the book Edward Wilson has a optimist view of the future of life. This book shows that it isn't to late to look at ways to better our conservation knowledge and skils. He does a very good job showing how history repeats its self and gives examples. He talks about possible solution and prevention means of the mess we have created and he discusses how we can still have a sustainable society even with rising populations around most of the globe. All in all I would recommend that you read this as it was a easy read but an important one.
I thought The Future of Life was a great book to read. It is a perfect book for people who like facts and learning new information. Some of what you'll learn from reading this will surprise you... Did you know that most of the plant and wildlife species common on Hawaii were introduced? The book will make you think about the affects that humans (including you!) have on the Earth and different species. While this is an awesome book, it may not be the best choice if you're reading books for other classes. If you're trying to read this book along with Wuthering Heights or Dante's Inferno, your mind may go on overload!

I think that The Future of Life is an eye-opening book, but it may not be the best choice if you already have books to read for other classes. Yes, this book does have some bland pages and big vocabulary terms, but it outlines a variety of environmental issues. This book taught me why people should respect our planet. This book also introduced many solutions to how we (as people) can fix the problems we have created. I would recommend this book, but keep in mind that it is a tough read.
