“DANGEROUS is also unusual because we have a very unusually high number of direct sales. When we advertised on highly trafficked websites such as Breitbart, we provided direct sales links for the ads. Because they make us more money!” Milo explained. “If these reporters care so much about BookScan numbers, which don’t capture even close to the total sales numbers, why aren’t they pointing out that according to BookScan I ought to have placed #2 in hardcover nonfiction in the New York Times Best Seller list, not #4? Maybe someone should ask them… DANGEROUS has hit the Best Seller lists against all the odds, and it will stay there for a long time — whether social justice warriors in the media like it or not.”
Gr 2-5– A striking examination of how the great auk, a once-thriving species, became extinct. Thornhill traces the evolutionary traits (ultimately disadvantages) and happenstance occurrences that primed the auk for human exploitation. The digitally created illustrations convey the dwindling auk numbers with emotion, while the swirling, deep ocean waters will entrance readers as they learn about the implications of extinction and the development and importance of animal conservation movements. A superb addition to science and animal collections.
