Editorial Reviews: Review:
"...Gore's professorial style, with its touches of sarcasm, omniscient tone, erudite asides and exasperated sighs, elicits a different response today than it did seven years ago....The change in attitude is as obvious as the reason behind it: The overwhelming scientific consensus has since confirmed Gore's years of warnings about the most important issue facing the planet....Even when he is saying something we already know, his voice adds a note of prophetic confirmation."
Joe Conason, Newsday (Long Island, N.Y.), 06/03/2007
"But this isn't a campaign book or another venture in teaching and advocacy. It's a deep public remonstrance, inspired a little by Tom Paine's COMMON SENSE, which combined anger at King George III in his day with larger arguments that the institution of monarchy itself had become a threat to our liberties. Gore is no Paine, but he argues persuasively that Bush's tenure is no longer a constitutional presidency. The book is part polemic, part impeachment in hard covers."
