High school student, Zarina Vásquez Zazueta, says this about the book:
"Bill Graham has made something that none of the other nature writers could have done. He made me interested in the matters of nature. The photos in this book showed me, the reader how beautiful and precise nature can be. It shows the reader not just photos of birds but also from different part of the nature itself.
The essays are short in matter of length .But they are very specific and easy to read and comprehend. The way that Graham talks about nature in this book makes you want to know more about it and take care of it.
I highly recommend this book not just because you want to know more about nature. How it can captivate you as someone how may or may not be interested in learning more about this huge and great topic. Also I recommend this book to students. Because the information in the book could help in the students in science classes .And teach them the importance of nature."
An Amazon reader says the following about this book:
"Bill Graham has synthesized the science of energy and the beauty of nature into an accessible resource that could serve both individuals or classrooms. The fine photos of animals, many birds, water, are left open-ended: we can view them, apply concepts to them, see them as examples of the dynamics of nature, or enjoy them as artful expression, all without the author's imposition. Interspersed with the photos, Graham gives brief and succinct insight into the many aspects of Energy. He talks of the "connecting force", which creates interconnectedness between all life on our planet. He refers to "flow systems", which can be witnessed in patterns that repeat in lungs, roots, branches, water. He describes the various "faces" of energy, with kinetic and potential as the bases. And, embedded in the text, are links to videos that demonstrate some of the concepts that he presents. The videos that Graham chooses are dramatic examples of these concepts, and valuable in and of themselves. Throughout, he continues to assert the importance of our protection of the forms, the order, the "adjacent possible" of Energy, of its manifestations on the planet. The message of conservationism is foremost, backed by science, with ideas of how to engage young people in a renewed nature consciousness. This ebook would be a valuable asset to mid- and high school classrooms. It holds many possibilities for discussion, for writing topics, for applying the course material of a science program in a dynamic way."
