What a truly amazing book. Rarely have I encountered a book such as this that is capable of teaching me so many things new, Many things I had never thought of before. And then Flannery stitches all these new ideas together in a totally readable, enjoyable book. I must admit though, that as I read some of his passages from the book, such as for example where he suggests that the cultural glue that holds our society together is based on fast food and populist entertainment. I wonder whether Flannery was writing at least some of his book with his tongue planted firmly in his cheek. Just saying!

I think this book is brilliant and explains our situation on this planet better than anything else I have read so far. It should be compulsary reading for all grade 12th students.
If I were Bill Gates I would spend some of my millions on this book and make it available for free for anybody who wants it

Flannery, a world-renowned scientist, discoverer, environmental activist and author of The Weather Makers, posits that "humans and the earth system co-evolve in ways analogous to ecosystems and bodies," a co-evolution that is key to a sustainable future.
