    1. i'd recommend derrick's "land of make believe" and many other books of his first before this book. however i still really enjoyed this one. every book by derrick is good. you can't make a mistake by reading him. in a nutshell derrick's thesis is that western civilization destroys its own land base, then destroys everyone else's land base and as a culture it only knows how to commodify and kill everything so it must be stopped and replaced before it kills the planet and we must begin to see the o [...]


    2. I really enjoyed this book. Particularly the interviews with Carolyn Raffensperger, Kathleen Dean Moore and Jesse Wolf Hardin. My only complaint is that the introduction was less than one full page, and there was no commentary between interviews tying them together. After the last interview was over the book was over and I felt a little like I was left hangingwanting more. Perhaps that was intentional?


    3. 4/16/09: The library wants this back today and I still have a few more interviews to go, unfortunately. My favorite one so far has undoubtedly been the one with Kathleen Dean Moore. Her language is unbelievably beautiful and her ideas all resonated with me. I'll be reading her work as soon as I can get my hands on it. I also enjoyed the George Draffan interview immensely, it's kind of cool to see where Jensen gets so many of the ideas he writes about in his other books. Still, compared to readin [...]


    4. I was looking forward to reading Derrick Jensen's words but found this to be a book of interviews which started me off in a slightly disappointed mood. The conversations were well done, they were really just preaching to the choir here. I found the last three interviews to be the ones that lost spoke to me. The last three basically reinforced my animistic view of how things are.


    5. Jensen does great interviews, and these are mostly people who have been important in his life. But I would much rather read "pure" Derrick Jensen. :)
