"A lovely and inspiring little book full of quotes, facts, and tributes celebrating Sir David Attenborough, it really would make a perfect gift."
Just gorgeous, good things come in small packages has never been more apt, neat and perfectly formed, this would make a great stocking filler. While Sir David Attenborough himself is not affiliated with this book, it is a fabulous celebration of the man, as the first line confirms: “Sir David Attenborough is many things - all of them wonderful” and further: “If he won’t celebrate himself we will have to do it for him”. It includes a time line of his life so far, chapters of his early years and his big break, through to becoming a broadcasting titan and protector of the planet. As the author Chas Newkey-Burden confirms: “What sets Attenborough apart is his endless supply of charm and wit. His dry sense of humour, elegant turn of phrase and self-deprecation warm our hearts”. I love a dip and and out book, and here you can easily slip in and read for a few pages, and as you become caught up in the anecdotes, a few more again! As I read I smiled, chuckled, raised my eyebrows, and found myself truly inspired by the man who is rightly described as a national treasure. Fascinating and engaging, The Wit and Wisdom of David Attenborough honours the man himself, and sits as an open window into his world.
