Silent Spring is perhaps the first environmental book that was ever published. Published back in the 1960s, originally, it is unfortunately just as relevant now as when it was first put into print. It is a book that will make you think about what we are doing to our food, to our planet, and to ourselves.
The writing is passionate and relatable. The science is readable by most anyone. The message is one that needs to be heard. If I had the power to make this mandatory reading in middle school then I would do so. Since I hold no power even close to that I will implore that if you read just one nom fiction book this year that you make it Silent Sprint. Not only is it well written and well presented it has a message that is of importance.
