Five books that examine the complicated relationship between humanity and nature. The list includes books about damage done to the planet by humans, how your body keeps you safe from microscopic invaders, the fallout from an oil spill and a novel about a group of ordinary people fighting to save the trees.
See details below:
1.Lights Out: Pride, Delusion, and the Fall of General Electric by Thomas Gryta
How could a company as big and successful as GE fail? I’ve been thinking about that question for several years, and Lights Out finally gave me many of the answers I was seeking.
2.Under a White Sky: The Nature of the Future by Elizabeth Kolbert
Kolbert’s latest is the most straightforward examination of “humanity versus nature.” She describes it as “a book about people trying to solve problems caused by people trying to solve problems.”
3. A Promised Land by Barack Obama
The memoir covers his early career up through the mission that killed Osama bin Laden in 2011. President Obama is unusually honest about his experience in the White House.
