 Elizabeth Kolbert’s “The Sixth Extinction” is one of those books that will alter your view of the world. Kolbert, a New Yorker staff writer,

documents with devastating effectiveness how humans are  causing changes to the planet that will eventually imperil most species. Already, we are living in an age of mass extinction, with creatures from amphibians to bats to coral reefs dying off at an unprecedented rate. Kolbert is an excellent writer and researcher, which makes the bad news even more effective.

Kolbert appears tonight on “Well Read,” the books and authors interview program on state public affairs network TVW. You can see the interview at 7 and 10 tonight on TVW (in Seattle, Comcast channel 23). Or you can watch it here.

For more information, here’s the Seattle Times review, as well as a Q&A with the author.
