Author Biography

David Attenborough's media career has spanned 60 years, and his extraordinary contribution to natural history broadcasting and film-making has brought him international recognition, from Life on Earth (1979) to Frozen Planet (2011). He has achieved many professional awards, honours and merits, including the CBE and OM, and was knighted in 1985.

Review

"It's almost impossible to believe that all these things happened to one man... but David Attenborough wears his achievements lightly and there are as many laughs here as there are animals." -- Michael Palin "What shines through most of all is his enthusiasm - as undimmed now as when he started out." Sunday Telegraph "An enthralling autobiography from one of the linchpins of television. His life has been fascinating. Attenborough is a master story-teller, and his book is crammed with anecdotes." Good Book Guide "Life on Air, David Attenborough's professional autobiography, tells the entertaining story of how he turned us all into armchair experts in natural history." -- Douglas Palmer New Scientist "[An] engaging and often amusing text."
