Reviews

  • "This is a splendid book and will do much good to counteract the comfortable hypocrisy of urban and suburban greens who pretend to 'save the earth' while carrying on business as usual. Fred Pearce goes out and sees the world as well as thinking and writing about it; he is one of the few that understand the Earth as it really is and we must listen to him."

    James Lovelock, author of THE REVENGE OF GAIA
  • "Pearce shows us how our greed, and our wilful blindness, are ruining the world in faraway places . . . An excellent book."

    Guardian
  • "Sometimes frightening, always enlightening, it will teach you more about other people's lives than you ever thought possible."

    New Scientist
  • "Beguiling . . . honest and revealing . . . optimistic . . . A big book for big problems."

    Country Living
  • "Follow in his global footprints as you read this compelling, thoughtful, provocative and utterly fascinating book."
