Reviews

Praise for Invasive Aliens
'Fascinating ... Eatherley has the unflagging curiosity of a Victorian explorer. The man seems to be indefatigable as he hacks away at Himalayan balsam (the pink, flowery weed that lines almost every riverbank in Britain) or goes on patrol for invasive signal crayfish in the River Barle. He's not afraid to get wet, dirty or tired on his mission to get up close and personal with intruders of all shapes and sizes. It feels as if we are on the front line with him.' The Times

'[Eatherley's] approach to his complex subject is open-minded, nuanced, and free-ranging to the point of wildness' Sunday Telegraph

'Fascinating ... the story of "invasive species" is really the story of human history, and [Eatherley] tells it with great verve' Daily Telegraph

'Eatherley has an impressive grasp of history - both human and natural ... [and] Invasive Aliens provides a well-researched overview of this complex and controversial topic. There is plenty here to surprise as well as enlighten' Literary Review

'A fascinating, comprehensive and thoughtful compendium of the flora and fauna that have reached our shores over the years ... Invasive Aliens is full of extraordinary and often complex stories.' Country Life

'Eatherley's thorough digest of a complex subject is engaging, informative and balanced. It is the first of these which most explains why Invasive Aliens has garnered such a sheaf of book awards. If the journalistic style puts off a few readers, it will please many more because the subject has been presented with verve and panache; I did not expect to be drawn in so comprehensively or to learn so much' James Robertson, British Wildlife

'[Dan Eatherley,] a talented naturalist writing with a genuine passion for the subject, has tackled the daunting task of charting the history of alien species in Britain with gusto. The result is an engrossing and utterly entertaining book' British Deer Society
