Editorial Reviews

If there is a single book on the subject to engage the enthusiast, silence the cynic and enlighten the ignoramus, this is it. (The Observer, London)

A welcome change from the scatter-gun apocalypse-mongering which has become standard fare in green literature. With luck and foresight, and more books like this, we may yet learn our lesson. (The Sunday Independent, London)
