'Andrew's book is filled with his boots-on-the-ground, ears-to-the-bush field experiences around the world, with keen and surprising observations on sound and the stories it tells us, that make us hear the world – and our place in it – in a new way'
Jennifer Ackerman, author of The Bird Way and The Genius of Birds

Dr Sue Gould, conservation ecologist
'I was very moved reading this, I feel Andrew offers people a whole new insight into our relationship with the world. This book will be loved by many, and help us return closer to the Earth.'

'This fascinating book is a convincing argument for why we must listen to our environment and all within it. It also shows us the pleasure and privilege which awaits anyone who is willing to listen deeply.'
Dr Lynne Kelly, AM, author of The Memory Code, Memory Craft
'I loved Deep Listening to Nature and found it both meditative and moving to read – an antidote to the trauma of world events going on around us. The vicarious travel to some of the most remote areas of the world was a wonderful added bonus – a peek not just at the landscape, but the biodiversity and sounds of the natural habitat. What a joy.'
Kristin Gill, publishing consultant
