Reviews

  • Beautiful to read, heartfelt and persuasive The Good Ancestor is one of those landmark books with the power to shift a mindset. One turns the pages feeling a growing compulsion for change. Krznaric’s clarion call for long-term thinking makes him an ancestor all future generations can be proud of

    Isabella Tree, author of Wilding
  • A philosopher's contribution to saving the world

    Andrew Anthony, Observer
  • A great antidote to the short-term thinking that comes easily to us all. If you want to be a good ancestor, start by reading this book

    Nigel Warburton, author of A Little History of Philosophy
  • I judge a book’s usefulness by how many pages I’m compelled to dog-ear and underline. This book on the pragmatics of long-term thinking earned 50-plus dog-ears

    Stewart Brand, creator of the Whole Earth Catalog and co-founder of The Long Now Foundation
  • An important and fascinating book that asks whether we’ve got what it takes to become citizens rather than consumers and create an ecological civilisation. The Good Ancestor is a triumph

    Sir Tim Smit, co-founder of the Eden Project
