Douglas Abrams’s resonant voice sounds peaceful and strong as he interviews the 87-year-old naturalist in this invitation to take action against the perils of our time in The Book of Hope. Host Jo Reed and AudioFile’s Sandi Henschel discuss this audiobook told in a friendly and conversational interview format where Goodall and Abrams find hope in the human determination to survive. They touch on global warming, terrorism, attacks against democracy, widening gaps between haves and have-nots, and the threat of future pandemics. An engaging listen, and a call to action.
