A passionate and lyrical work of reportage and advocacy.--Caspar Henderson "Guardian "
Lyrical and hugely intelligent.--Mark Cocker "New Statesman "
So if you read one book this year, make it Julian Hoffman's Irreplaceable. I'm not going to dilute that statement with qualifiers ('If you read one nonfiction book . . .' or 'If you like nature books . . .'). It's too important a book to limit its audience in any way.--Rebecca Foster "Shiny New Books "
If the pen really is mightier than the sword, then Julian Hoffman is a knight errant, looking for trouble, a champion of underdogs.--Paul Evans "Caught by the River "
The power of Hoffman's book lies in the reporting: he doesn't deal--as many environmentalists do--in generalities and alarmist warnings about what lies ahead for the world, but in the specifics of the here and now.--Julian Glover "London Evening Standard "
A powerful hymn to humanity engaging with nature . . . [A] remarkable, illuminating book.--Paddy Woodsworth "Irish Times "
A terrific book, prescient, serious and urgent with a careful appreciation of not only the places, creatures and people it brings to us, but also the language used to convey them. This book is an object of celebration and commemoration in itself.--Amy Liptrot "author of The Outrun "
Powerful, timely, beautifully written and wonderfully hopeful . . . From the North Kent marshes to the mountainous Balkans, Julian Hoffman shines a light on what we had, what we have, and how much we still stand to lose.--Rob Cowen "author of Common Ground "
Unforgettable. Julian Hoffman presents a radical and revelatory perspective on our planet. At a time when the Earth often seems broken beyond repair, this courageous and hopeful book offers life-changing encounters with the more-than-human world.--Nancy Campbell "author of The Library of Ice "
Wonderful, tender and subtle, beautifully written and filled with a calm authority . . . No book has done more to champion the idea that connections between the human and the natural are the lifeblood of everything that matters.--Adam Nicolson "author of The Seabird's Cry "
