• "Lauren Redniss is one of the most unique and creative science writers of our time — her combination of beautiful artwork, reporting, and poetic prose brings science to life in ways that words alone simply cannot. Thunder & Lighting is a fascinating meditation on how climate affects the earth’s landscape and the lives inhabiting it. But also how the landscape of a book — the layout of its text, the images on its pages — impacts the telling of a story. This is an important book about a topic that couldn’t be more important to us all."
