Recommended by Heywood Hill Reader Sir Crispin Tickell:
"The author has widespread experience – with the National Trust and elsewhere – in evaluating environmental and related issues. Something usually missing is appreciation of beauty. We can tie ourselves in knots over economic growth, profitability, and development in its many aspects, but beauty is something which affects us directly in understanding and appreciating the world around us, and what we are doing to it. Now read about it and look around differently."
