Entomologist, bumblebee expert, and public scientist Dave Goulson narrates Silent Earth in a pleasing British accent and non-dogmatic tone. Host Jo Reed and AudioFile’s Alan Minskoff discuss the audiobook’s emphasis on how important insects are to our environment. Goulson presents his case for immediate and drastic action with the authority of a scientist who knows whereof he speaks, does the work, and shares his knowledge in a nuanced and balanced way.
