Non-fiction book review - Last of the Giants

Last of the Giants by Jeff Campbell

An absolutely fascinating read. Campbell explains the science of extinction and population development as well as the affects of human society on animal populations. Threats, preservation efforts, historical context, it's all here wrapped up in a  personable and engaging narrative. The subject and language are somewhat complex at times so this book won't appeal to everyone. A little bit of reading diligence pays off though with this book.
