This book was an important study at the time but it is very dated now


First class book

by Estibaliz on Jun 1, 2012

Chemicals are threatening the whole environment. Plants, animals and human beings are in danger because of greedy and ignorance. The rise of cancer, and rare alergies and respiratory diseases could be exaplained by the abuse of chemicals.


A must read

by Earthtrek on Jan 20, 2012

This book is a must read for anyone who cares about humanity and the environment we inhabit. Ms. Carlson skillfully explains how species, including humanity, don't live in a microcosm, but are instead enmeshed - on a global scale - with every other living species. She clearly demonstrates the folly of believing that we as humans are somehow separate and distinct from the rest of creation. Although "Silent Spring" was written over 50 years ago, it's message is as powerful today as it was when it was written.


Not Disappointed

by Jane on Jul 14, 2011

Wonderful book. I will be using this book in my environmental sociology class in the fall. Rachel Carson's courage in writing this book in the face of such powerful and greedy people amazes me!
