Reviews and Endorsements

"Well-composed snapshots of history, theory and observation that will fascinate, enlighten and appal many readers" ― Guardian

"Compelling ... It is a disquieting tale, related with rigour and restraint by Kolbert" ― Observer

"Passionate ... This is the big story of our age. We are living through the historically rare elimination of vast numbers of species. And for the first time, it is our fault ... Uplifting prose about the wonders of nature. But the overwhelming message of this book is as clear as that of Rachel Carson's Silent Spring in 1962. We humans have become a geological force in our own right - and, unless we act, the consequences will be devastating" ― Sunday Times
