This sounds like an interesting book and sounds perfect for those who are interested in conservation. I also am interested in how some groups, while created with good intentions are susceptible to corruption. Congrats on the book of the day. Great review.

"A Vanishing Kind" by John Wamsley and Stephen L. Davey - John Wamsley had a difficult upbringing in a large family, but he was also a very thoughtful person. When he encountered a roadblock to his plans, he thought of alternative ways of achieving his ends. He grew up to be a mathematician and a conservationist of the Australian bush and left a lasting legacy.

This sounds like a fascinating book about conservation of threatened wildlife in Australia. The biography also details the struggles in maintaining this with constant change of regulations and corruption within government officials. Thanks for a great review.

Conservation of wildlife is always important and always interesting. It is truly refreshing to know that there is someone who struggled against all odds for most of his life to do something about the issue. Most people just talk about it while doing nothing.
I believe I will definitely enjoy reading this book.

Thanks for your detailed and insightful review!

This is a well-written review and I commend the author for his/her effort.
This is a very interesting book, the right balance of education and entertainment if you ask me and the subject matter is one of great interest to people who would love to travel to Austria.
Nice one
