'Heartfelt' The Irish Times

'A wise and original thinker ' —Jeremy Addis, Books Ireland

In the tenth decade of his life, Risteard Mulcahy wrote his twelfth and final book. The visionary former cardiologist put into words a lifetime of environmental activism and reflection on our relationship with the natural world. With dedication and thorough research, the author pulls the reader into a believable dystopia, where resources are scarce and the limitations of our planet have been pushed beyond repair. If we continue the way we are going, there is little hope left for the future of the earth. Risteard’s view of the future is bleak, but his outlining of his ideas for change are what makes this an ultimately hopeful book. The books is full of wisdom and grace – and a lifetime of observation and love for our home planet. This is a man who, in the words of Senator Marie-Louise O’Donnell “always shakes up conventional wisdom”.

Risteárd Mulcahy was consultant cardiologist to St. Vincent's Hospital and The Coombe Lying-in Hospital in Dublin from 1950 to 1998. He was appointed Professor of Preventive Cardiology by University College, Dublin in 1971. He has written eleven books on cardiology, the prevention of heart disease, the medical services, family biographies and trees.
