  • 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
