Amazon.com Review: Floods of Fortune

Floods of Fortune
Floods of Fortune
by Michael Goulding
Edition: Paperback



 
4.0 out of 5 stars STRANGE MIX OF AMAZON RELATED THEMES, GOOD OUTCOMEMarch 1, 2009
This book is written by some of the most knowledgeable and experienced Amazon scientists and explorers; having said that, it is unclear who the target audience is, since the book mixes part history of the region, part biology, especially as it relates to the floodplain, and part policy recommendations (with a strong environmental focus). 

Though the book is very interesting and has especially good photography on the underwater floodplain, it is difficult to recommend it to a specific audience, since, for example, there are better books for tourists; there are also better books for history buffs; same for biologists. I guess it is for you if you find yourself at the intersection of these and need imagery to get a sense of what you read.
