David Suzuki, internationally renowned scientist and host of many popular Canadian television series, is also the author of more than forty books, including The Sacred Balance, Tree, and Good News for a Change, and the just released David Suzuki, The Autobiography. He is a world leader in sustainable ecology. In 1969 he first appeared on television screens across Canada as the host of Suzuki on Science, which two years later metamorphosed into Science Magazine. In 1979 he began hosting the CBC series The Nature of Things, which is viewed now in fifty countries around the world. His other television specials include A Planet for the Taking (1985), which won a United Nations’ award, and The Sacred Balance (2002). His PBS series on DNA, The Secret of Life, was exceptionally popular internationally, as was his Discovery Channel 5-part series, The Brain: The Universe Within.

Over the years Suzuki has received numerous Canadian and international awards. Canada’s First Nations people have given him many tributes, along with five names: Big Mountain, Man Who Knows Much, My Own, Sacred Mountain, and Eagle Child. He lives in Vancouver, British Columbia with his wife and children.

The eloquent scientist, environmentalist and author, offering David Suzuki, The Autobiography, published by Greystone Books, discusses his first seventy years and his vision of the future. This is accompanied by a power-point presentation of video clips and his own photographs.

“David Suzuki’s voice, quiet and compelling, is one of the most crucial sounds on a noisy planet.”— David Quammen
