Description

"

David Suzuki's autobiography limns a life dedicated to making the world a better place. The book expands on the early years covered in ""Metamorphosis"" and continues to the present, when, at age 70, Suzuki reflects on his entire life -- and his hopes for the future.

The book begins with his life-changing experience of racism interned in a World War II concentration camp, and goes on to discuss his teenage years, his college and postgraduate experiences in the U.S., and his career as a geneticist and then as the host of ""The Nature of Things.""

With characteristic candor and passion, Suzuki describes how he became a leading environmentalist, writer, and thinker; the establishment of the David Suzuki Foundation; his world travels and meetings with luminaries like Nelson Mandela and the Dalai Lama; and the abiding role of nature and family in his life. David Suzuki is an intimate and inspiring look at a modern-day visionary.
