Matthias  Glaubrecht - The End of Evolution


"Maybe one of the most important books of the year."

Der Standard

"This book is an appeal: nature and animals need our action. Now! Or else we'll end up just like them."

ARD "ttt" (06.03.2020)

"A wake-up call like the Club of Rome report. [It] belongs in our time like Fridays for Future or Extinction Rebellion."

Detuschlandfunk Kultur

"For Glaubrecht, the biggest impending catastrophe isn't the human-made climate change, but rather the global extinction of species"

Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung

"Glaubrecht uses distinctive images and engaging language to link his personal experiences with key issues of ecology."

Bild der Wissenschaft

"Glaubrecht presents through these 1000 pages a disturbing scenario of the future. His book is also a rational appeal to halt the overexploitation of nature."

rbb ‘zibb’

"This evolutionary biologist presents a disquieting, comprehensive analysis in which climate change is only a secondary issue."

BR2 ‘Diwan’

"The book is an enviable achievement from the dawn of man to the present."

Recklinghäuser Zeitung

"This is a comprehensive ecological manifesto, an appeal for the rights of nature, and is valuable as a handbook for saving the planet [...]"

"Matthias Glaubrecht alarms us with his sharp, systematic analysis of the progression of earthy life."

"The End of Evolution, by the evolutionary biologist Matthias Glaubrecht, is an overwhelmingly good book."

Deggendorfer Zeitung
