Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Highly recommended I learned much about global warming from this book. In fact, I enjoyed it so much that I decided to read it a second time, something that I almost never do with any book. The author has succeeded in breaking down a complex subject into manageable and easily understood components. The book is up-to-date, well researched, well documented, well written and well indexed. A very fine publication! As a retired Simcoe County high school teacher-librarian, I highly recommend this book for inclusion in both elementary, and secondary school libraries, and of course, in public libraries too. I think this book is appropriate for students from grades 7 to 11.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Highly recommend it! This book walks the reader through the complexities of the climate crisis by systematically demystifying the scientific processes of things we encounter in everyday life. I have a degree in science (BSc) and still learned a lot! At the same time, readers without a science background will find this book teaches them the processes behind climate change in a comprehensive but entertaining way. HIghly recommend it!
