Reviews and Endorsements

"The most terrifying book I have ever read . . . a meticulously documented, white-knuckled tour through the cascading catastrophes that will soon engulf our warming planet" ― The New York Times

"Riveting . . . Some readers will find Mr Wallace-Wells's outline of possible futures alarmist. He is indeed alarmed. You should be, too" ― The Economist

"Wallace-Wells is an extremely adept storyteller, simultaneously urgent and humane . . . [he] does a terrifyingly good job of moving between the specific and the abstract" ― Slate

"A very accessible and compelling read . . . a much more nuanced and a much more hopeful vision than you might expect" ― The Irish Times

"If you read just one work of non-fiction this year, it should probably be [this] . . . What this book forces you to face is more important than any other subject you could be informing yourself about" ― The Evening Standard
