Reviews

Compelling, penetrating, devastating - Silent Earth is a wake-up call for the world. Dave Goulson matches science with eloquence and passion to spotlight the cataclysmic loss of insect life on our planet. Rachel Carson would be proud. -- Isabella Tree
Insects are the most vivid expressions of the astounding fact of life in what may be a dead universe. Read this book, then look and wonder. -- Bryan Appleyard * Sunday Times *
Thoughtful, frightening and yet hugely enjoyable... This book will make you think differently about our right of dominion over the planet. -- Joe Shute * Daily Telegraph *
Studded with engaging descriptions...[and] a plenitude of practical suggestions... This is a crusading but not a preachy book... I was charmed, enthused, dismayed and grieved by Silent Earth. -- Richard Davenport-Hines * The Oldie *
His magnum opus. Silent Earth is both a heartfelt letter of love to the insect world that has captivated him from childhood, and a rousing call to arms to counter the recent catastrophic decline in insects before it is too late... Magnificent. -- Caroline Sanderson * The Bookseller, Book of the Month *
