“Urgent, absolutely necessary reading as a portrait of our devastated planet.” -Kirkus Reviews

Elizabeth Kolbert is such a great writer with tons of research both reading and in the field reporting on topics we can no longer ignore. I am not one to choose these types of books to read but I will now read anything Elizabeth Kolbert writes. I have such respect and admiration for her bravery and dedication.
I read “The Sixth Extinction” only because it won the 2015 Pulitzer Prize for general nonfiction, not for the subject matter. So glad I did because it gripped me from page one and man, it really opened my eyes. I now read everything she writes in The New Yorker and read this book on Kindle as soon as it was published. When I saw it at the Friends of Key West Library Book Sale, I did not hesitate. It’s a privilege to add this to my BookCrossing shelves here in the land of the coral reef which she addresses and examines in great detail. It was fun to find a New Yorker Comment article from February 8, 2021, included inside. I wish I had more of them to add to it.
