  • Riveting... inspiring... the premier chronicler of humanity's thoughtless destruction of our habitat

    Washington Post
  • Kolbert's prose is peppered with...mordant observations, which bring out the humanity (or animality) in her subjects

    Ben Cooke, The Times
  • This intimate natural history is both a sober assessment of the ecosystems we have harmed and an exciting description of some of the discoveries that could help undo that damage

    Scientific American
  • Brilliantly executed and urgently necessary

    Publishers Weekly
  • A master elucidator, Kolbert is gratifyingly direct as she assesses our predicament between a rock and a hard place, creating a clarion and invaluable 'book about people trying to solve problems created by people trying to solve problems
