Praise

“Enric Sala’s The Nature of Nature makes a case for protecting our planet that appeals just as strongly to our sense of reason as to our sense of humanity. Building on a lifetime of work exploring harmful human impacts on our ecosystems, he artfully weaves together his experiences as an explorer and scholar to explain how the natural world works. Sala makes the case for environmentalism, as he puts it, to both the brain and the heart. The Nature of Nature highlights the wonders of the wild and makes a beautifully argued and heartfelt case for why we must do all we can to protect them.” —Leonardio DiCaprio, actor & environmentalist
 
“Incisive, impassioned, pragmatic, and compelling, Enric Sala’s beautiful book The Nature of Nature is both a gift of wonders and a call to arms. His observations of how nature works and, crucially, how it sustains human life, provide the clearest argument of all for the world to change its ways.” —Isabella Tree, author of Wilding: The Return of Nature to Our Farm
 
“In The Nature of Nature, Enric Sala surveys records of experiments and academic works on nature to advance an urgent argument for the economic value and moral necessity of preserving our planet’s wild places on land and in the ocean. He is also inspired by the wonder and the miracle that he discovers our planet to be and argues that we are able to recover and safeguard this gift of God—namely, the planet’s uniquely distinctive endowment with life—only through our joyful contemplation of the mystery of our planet’s being and functioning, as Pope Francis has also observed.” —Cardinal Peter Turkson, Prefect of the Dicastery for Promoting Integral Human Development, Vatican
 
“The Nature of Nature makes a compelling case for why giving more space to nature is essential to human and economic prosperity. Every leader should read it and apply its insights.” —Klaus Schwab, Founder and Executive Chairman of the World Economic Forum
 
“Enric Sala has a unique ability to explain complicated issues in a simple way. He helps us to understand the world, but also how to act in order to protect it better. Faced with the urgent need to protect our Planet, he provides us with enlightening insights and solutions for action. This book will be of invaluable help to those who refuse to give up.” —HSH Prince Albert II of Monaco

“Enric Sala writes in clear and highly readable prose about a complex subject, drawing on personal experiences and stories gathered from others. I highly recommend The Nature of Nature for anyone wishing to learn more about the interconnectedness of all living beings, the destructive impact of unsustainable human actions, and how we need to act together to heal the harms we have inflicted. It’s a clear account of the variety and interconnectedness of life forms on Planet Earth—our only home.” —Jane Goodall, PhD, DBE, Founder oif the Jane Goodall Institute & UN Messenger of Peace
 
“This is an accessible—indeed a charming—account of how natural systems work; as we are now wrecking those intricate systems at a frightening pace, this could serve as an antidote, reminding us to be far more careful, and far more appreciative.” –Bill McKibben, author of The End of Nature and Falter: Has the Human Game Begun to Play Itself Out?
