Silent Spring by Rachel Carson
Silent Spring

ekendall, May 13, 2009

I found Rachel Carson's Silent Spring wonderful. It reviews many of the poisonous pesticides and herbicides that we use today and explains the harmful effects they have on our planet. Written in 1962 it was way ahead of its time and helped ban DDT in the US. I really enjoyed the concise writing style and how well everything was explained. Even though some of the information was repetitive in the end it is all worth while. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone concerned about the environment and our planet's future.
