Finding Bigfoot: Everything You Need to Know
Finding Bigfoot: Everything You Need to Know - Animal Planet

Over the course of nine seasons and 100 episodes, for intrepid individuals searched numerous locations to find evidence related to Bigfoot and become one of the top rated shows in the history of Animal Planet.  Finding Bigfoot: Everything You Need to Know by Martha Brockenbrough is a tie-in book aimed at young children to provide information related to the subject of an undiscovered North American ape.

 

This book is geared towards younger readers and fans of the Animal Planet tv series of the same name with the aim to giving information on the mysterious upright walking ape that might be stalking the wilderness of North America.  Investigating such questions as “Does Bigfoot Exist?” as well as investigating the evidence supporting that they do, not only in North America but around the world, but also looking into the various hoaxes and misidentifications that many skeptics bring up this book treats it’s target audience with respect and aims to promote critical thinking.  For the readers that believe bigfoot exists there is a “how to” guide about bigfooting and how to collect possible evidence of the creature when found.  And throughout are eyewitness accounts from the first four seasons of the show with comments from one of the Finding Bigfoot team members.

 

While roughly 140 pages, this is an oversized book filled with pictures and easy to read text size.  Though intended for children, adults will find this informative as its for general audiences of both believers and skeptics.  Brockenbrough’s prose is engaging towards a younger audience without being insulting while keeping adults reading as well.  The introduction by Finding Bigfoot star Cliff Barackman, a former teacher, starts the book off right with telling how he came to accept the existence of Bigfoot after growing up as a kid enjoying learning about “monsters”.

 

Finding Bigfoot: Everything You Need to Know is an easy-to-read and informative look into the subject of an undiscovered North American ape whether you’re a child or a child at heart.

Sharing on how to cope with anxiety
Notes on a Nervous Planet - Matt Haig

Matt has been suffering from depression, anxiety and panic attack since he was a young man. 

 

Learning from his years of experience in trying to cope with his mental illness. He give advises to his himself and his younger self and let us read them too. 

 

The part about panic attack is very useful. Panic attack has also different in degree and his sharing of it would be helpful to think ahead of time on how to react to it. 

 

The rethinking of human relations with online device including phone, computer, iPad is helpful too. 


Who we are and what we care about and how we invest our time show how much we care about things? 

 

If we put all the hours of the day into a times-sheet and do a periodic analysis of it. We would find that we care more about online game than our family members. Care more about online media than our loves one. 

 

If that is true for us, then we need to rethink our strategic on time management. 

 

Nicely done. Easy to read short chapters.

Making Eden by David Beerling
Making Eden: How Plants Transformed a Barren Planet - David Beerling

TITLE:  Making Eden: How Plants Transformed a Barren Planet

 

AUTHOR:  David Beerling

 

DATE PUBLISHED: 2019

 

FORMAT:  Hardcover

 

ISBN-13:  978019879830

__________________________

DESCRIPTION:

"Over 7 billion people depend on plants for healthy, productive, secure lives, but few of us stop to consider the origin of the plant kingdom that turned the world green and made our lives possible. And as the human population continues to escalate, our survival depends on how we treat the plant kingdom and the soils that sustain it. Understanding the evolutionary history of our land floras, the story of how plant life emerged from water and conquered the continents to dominate the planet, is fundamental to our own existence.

In Making Eden David Beerling reveals the hidden history of Earth's sun-shot greenery, and considers its future prospects as we farm the planet to feed the world. Describing the early plant pioneers and their close, symbiotic relationship with fungi, he examines the central role plants play in both ecosystems and the regulation of climate. As threats to plant biodiversity mount today, Beerling discusses the resultant implications for food security and climate change, and how these can be avoided. Drawing on the latest exciting scientific findings, including Beerling's own field work in the UK, North America, and New Zealand, and his experimental research programmes over the past decade, this is an exciting new take on how plants greened the continents.
"

_________________________________

REVIEW:

 

This is a fairly comprehensive survey of what we know about plant evolution - when plants first started growing on land, when leaves, stomata, roots, seeds, and flowers first developed.  Beerling also shows that without plants, Earth would not be the Eden that it is today.  Interesting, but some may find the genomic aspects too technical.  This book is something of a prequel to Beerling's previous book:  The Emerald Planet: How Plants Changed Earth's History.
