I learned a lot from the first six chapters of this book. Enlightening, insightful, and interesting bits of information about the diversity found on earth, the places it can be found, and how it benefits humans to have other organisms around. Wilson gives so many examples from various ecosystems around the globe, and its easy to find inspiration in even the smallest microbe. This is the mark of excellent writing and awe of the environment.
Unfortunately, to me, the book falls short in the last chapter. Wilson is trying to give suggestions and possible solutions for the future, but they feel week and a little too tree hugging to be practical to me.
