What made the experience of listening to Biodiversity: Bolinda Beginner Guides the most enjoyable?
The story is set out logically and clearly and gives a great overview of all basic aspects off bio diversity. I got this book to get a better understanding of issues involved with this and this one, like most Bolinda guides I have tried, does exactly what it says on the tin.
Whilst this book has relevant information in regards to it's content I was left listening to this book with my guard up. I could not get comfortable and put my guard down and I had a complete and utter lack of trust and respect for the author. It ruined my whole experience and I'm sure that he only put the relevant stuff in to white wash the fact that in every chapter he used a tactic called poisoning the well. At the beginning he made it quite clear that he was about to disappoint and offend readers. He suggests reading another book if you're not happy with proselytization, he didn't say proselytization, he said "facts" those who are interested in the facts. Only an apologist speaks like that. It's presented in a wishy washy fashion and you then get to the end of the chapters and at the end he finds a way to falsely equivocate the topic with the Bible or scripture or a saint. None of which have any relevance to the topic in the least. At the end I was met with a spiel about how his god did it all and that we should respect god. He makes no apology for the fact that he has book has nothing but the bare bones of the topic and that it was tainted with religious proselytism.
Thoroughly disappointed. I spent the whole time thinking he was going to attribute it to creation and that he was going to point out intelligent design. In the end it was merely implied. In the end I was thoroughly disappointed with the presentation of the talking points. It was as though there was no effort put in at all.
The book should read biodiversity, Jesus did it. Then thrown in the fiction section with the rest of the religious books.
