  • Will be one of the most influential books of our time

    Owen Jones
  • Klein is a brave and passionate writer who always deserves to be heard, and this is a powerful and urgent book

    John Gray, Observer
  • Without a doubt one of the most important books of the decade

    Amitav Ghosh
  • Savages the idea that we will be saved by new technologies or by an incremental shift away from fossil fuels... Her solution requires a radical reconfiguration of our economic system

    New York Times
  • Her task is to take a potential catastrophe of unimaginable reach and to be calm and welcoming, drawing new people in. She does vast amounts of travel and research and thinking, then crafts all of it to the scale of her own voice: the voice of a pleasant, funny, unthreatening-looking woman

    Guardian
  • I have devoured Naomi Klein's This Changes Everything, the book the world has been waiting for. I urge everyone to read it (especially politicians). It is her most prescient book yet and is a much-needed call to arms as time runs out on climate change

    Cornelia Parker, Observer, Books of the Year
  • It's no exaggeration to say This Changes Everything is the most important book I've read all year - perhaps in a decade. Klein sets out the scientific case for urgent action on climate change and argues passionately that our only hope of combating its effects is a revolution in our entire economic system. Crucially, she manages to leave the reader with a degree of optimism

  • [T]he problems - climate change, plus everything that is changing as a result, plus the increasing toxicity of the planet - can no longer be denied. This is a conversation that needs to happen on a large scale, and on a local scale, and on a personal scale, very soon

    Margaret Atwood, Guardian, Books of the Year
  • Captured the collective sense of anger and awakening ... [a] frightening look at climate change and capitalism

    Matt Haig, Observer, Books of the Year
  • Naomi Klein applies her fine, fierce, and meticulous mind to the greatest, most urgent questions of our times. . . I count her among the most inspirational political thinkers in the world today
