  • One of the great science journalists, Kolbert has for many years been an essential voice, a reporter from the front lines of the environmental crisis... Important, necessary, urgent and phenomenally interesting... Beautifully and insistently, Kolbert shows us that it is time to think radically about the ways we manage the environment; time to work with what we have, using the knowledge we have, with our eyes fully open to the realities of where we are

    HELEN MACDONALD, New York Times
  • Skilful and subtle

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

    Ben Cooke, The Times
  • A meticulously researched and deftly crafted work of journalism that explores some of the biggest challenges of our age

    Jonathan Watts, Guardian
  • A superb and honest reflection of our extraordinary time

    Nature
  • Under a White Sky... exhibits Kolbert's sculptor-like skill for making climate change feel tangible, happening before our eyes and beneath our fingers

    Matt Reynolds, Wired
  • To be a well-informed citizen of Planet Earth, you need to read Elizabeth Kolbert. . . . It's a tribute to Kolbert's skills as a storyteller that she transforms the quest to deal with the climate crisis into a darkly comic tale of human hubris and imagination that could either end in flames or in a new vision of Paradise

    Jeff Goodell, Rolling Stone
  • Riveting... inspiring... the premier chronicler of humanity's thoughtless destruction of our habitat

    Washington Post
  • 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
