Just finishing off Rex Weyler's Greenpeace, the history of the first 10 years or so of the environmental group.
Rex pens a good story. He was there for a lot of it, out in the Zodiacs putting his life on the line for a cause he believed in. His narrative is clean and crisp and he doesn't dawdle, but perhaps he gives too little attention to some of the internal struggles in the group. But that's a minor quibble. He describes how a group of activist friends turn a crazy one-off protest against American nuclear weapons testing into a political force and a global environmental network almost by accident.
A fascinating read and worth checking out.
