Offers hope. Never underestimating the damage we have done, nor the difficulty of repair, his is a positive message. -- Lord Deben * Country Life *
Working with Nature is part-memoir, part-blueprint, part manifesto ... Purseglove's world is tangible, sensual and beautifully described * The Planner *
There has never been a better time to read such an eloquent, passionate but essentially practical account of the front line between nature and human development. It puts some of the sillier reaches of British nature conservation practice into perspective. I thoroughly recommend it. * ECOS *

A pioneering and counter-culture work -- Oliver Rackham
It is a celebration of life in and around the water and it is an eloquent plea to water engineers, to farmers and to Government to respect that life -- BBC Wildlife
