David Suzuki in simple words has written and narrated his past not only for his grandchildren but for the grandchildren of the current era as well. The letters are not only full of advice but also with experiences that make the advice more effective as he is telling something that he has learned from his own personal experience and thus his advice is not just a quote borrowed from any book. The thing that makes the impact more effective is the versatility in the letters. Each and every topic is there for the taking.
The letters have everything related to life from fishing to feminism. He is one of those few who considers failure as a part of life and coniders it the first step in the learning process. He talks about passion as an essential for progress and prosperity in the world. The book is for all those who try to find a hero in their grandparents.
Another important aspect of the book that is revealed to us in the later stages is that it tells us about Suzuki’s life as well because each of his advice comes with one or more stories related to his own life experiences and his life as an elder in the family first as a father and later as a grandfather. Each status in the family gave him much to learn which he wants to convey to his future generations and also to others who have no elders to guide them or they have no one to whom they can look up to in their life. The main theme of the letters is the most beautiful one because it tells us the power of passion behind every success.
The author truly has explained some of the trickiest concepts in a clear and easy way to understand them better. you may also like to listen to The Naturalists if you want to listen more from the author.
