  • A powerful book

    Mark Cocker, Financial Times
  • Thoughtful, frightening and yet hugely enjoyable... This book will make you think differently about our right of dominion over the planet

    Daily Telegraph
  • It's remarkable that insect decline has gone largely unnoticed by non-specialists... Keep dreaming, Dave Goulson. We'll need more dreamers like you

    The Times
  • If Silent Earth contains a single incontestable message it is that nature - insects, flowers, plants, trees, birds and mammals, including our species - is a single system... This powerful book tells us that we need to act as if we understand this essential truth

    Financial Times
  • Compelling, penetrating, devastating - Silent Earth is a wake-up call for the world. Dave Goulson matches science with eloquence and passion to spotlight the cataclysmic loss of insect life on our planet. Rachel Carson would be proud.

  • Read this book, then look and wonder

    Sunday Times
  • Insects are the most vivid expressions of the astounding fact of life in what may be a dead universe. Read this book, then look and wonder.

    Bryan Appleyard, Sunday Times
  • Thoughtful, frightening and yet hugely enjoyable... This book will make you think differently about our right of dominion over the planet.

    Joe Shute, Daily Telegraph
  • Studded with engaging descriptions...[and] a plenitude of practical suggestions... This is a crusading but not a preachy book... I was charmed, enthused, dismayed and grieved by Silent Earth.

    Richard Davenport-Hines, The Oldie
  • His magnum opus. Silent Earth is both a heartfelt letter of love to the insect world that has captivated him from childhood, and a rousing call to arms to counter the recent catastrophic decline in insects before it is too late... Magnificent.

    Caroline Sanderson, The Bookseller, Book of the Month
