When frontline BBC news reporter David Shukman switched beat from world affairs to environment in 2003, he feared he might be in for a dull life. He couldn't have been more wrong. His new job has taken him to every corner of the earth: journeying up the fabled North West Passage in the Arctic, chasing after loggers in the Amazon and battling through plastic waste in the Pacific Ocean, getting trapped in Siberian blizzards along the way.

Reporting Live from the End of the World charts Shukman's extraordinary adventures, in the process providing a fascinating eye-witness account of the state of the planet. Wonderfully written and often very funny, the book will be loved by travel, science or environment readers alike.

About the Author:

David Shukman has been a television news reporter for more than three decades. He reported live from East Berlin during the fall of the wall, and was the first journalist to film Soviet nuclear weapons. He became Science & Environment Correspondent in 2003, after years on the frontline of conflicts such as Bosnia, Sierra Leone and Tajikistan.

Review:

"Enthralling these are insights from the real news frontline, and Shukman tells science like a story." Sir Ranulph Fiennes

"Whether camping on ice sheets in Greenland in a tent designed by Nasa, being eaten alive by insects up the Amazon or pursuing illegal loggers in Brazil, Shukman's account has all the eco-action you could want" - Herald

"Shukman talks a lot of common sense" - The Scotsman

"It's vivid, compelling and relays some singular experiences... urgent, alarming reading" - Metro
