|What is that book he mentions that details animals that have died out? I did have it written down but I've lost it and I wanted to put it on my Christmas list. It sounded really interesting.|

The book said on page 567
In the mid-1990s, the Australian naturalist Tim Flannery, now head of the South Australian Museum in Adelaide, became struck by how little we seemed to know about many exctinctions, including relatively recent ones.
The result was an extraordinary book called A Gap In Nature, constituting the most complete - and, it must be said, moving - catalogue of animal extinctions from the last three hundred years.
Edit: oops - Shinzou beat me to it

Shockingly, Play have it in stock for £15.
That's brilliant, thanks a lot. I didn't actually like the Bill Bryson book, hence why it's up for swap in the book swapsies thread, but I really liked the look of this one.
Going on Chrimbo list now! ;o)
