By Tony Schwartz on September 13, 2009
Format: Paperback
I have read many, many books about human behavior, psychology and the search for wisdom (and written a couple of my own), but McCallum's Ecological Intelligence stands apart from all of them. Far broader and more sweeping in its concern than its title may indicate, this is a brilliant, heartfelt, lyrical meditation on what it will require for human beings to survive and thrive in the perilous years ahead. "The future of humans as an independent species is precarious," McCallum writes, but his book is full of optimism and possibility, insight and potential solutions. I came across the book while on Safari in Botswana this summer, which only made McCallum's insights about what we have to learn from animals in the wild -- how we are like them for better and for worse -- more visceral and more effecting. A South African-based Jungian psychiatrist by training, but also a skilled wilderness guide and a poet, McCallum ranges across many disciplines -- among them psychology, biology, ecology. poetry, mythology and evolution. While he writes with great subtlety, depth and range, he is never esoteric, and he is immensely pleasurable to read. We live in a world in which the superlative has become a cliche and lost its meaning as a result. Recognizing that, I still feel compelled to say that this may be the most important book I've ever read. You owe it to yourself (and to our future) to read it.

Format: Paperback
In a time when sustainability has become a household word with such diverse meanings, McCallum's Ecological Intelligence offers a most relevant interpretation of what sustaining life could entail. McCallum's connection with the natural world is personal and authentic; his understanding of the wild draws us into the daily happening of nature that we so frequently tend to miss. Ecological Intelligence unfolds a broad and holistic view of humans as an inextricable part of the natural world, in a powerful and sensitive voice filled with wisdom reminiscent of a modern day San tracker.

There are some excellent titles suggested in the previous review which could make a powerful accompaniment to Ecological Intelligence. But what McCallum's book offers in a genuine and unassuming way is a unique reading of our tracks on earth that shed light on where we ought to be heading.

I read this while on safari and found it a beautiful accompaniment to what I was experiencing. It was like listening to a naturalist talk about the wild, but with a profound sense of who we are within that world and the larger universe. McCallum provides wonderful observations about things we normally would not notice -- from scientific, cultural. anthropological, and ecological points of view. He offers a metaphoric way toward understanding our intersection with nature. As a result, I noticed nature differently and saw more details and connections between plant and animal life, evolution and the role of man in changing the order of things.
