Review:

2071 is better than good: it is necessaryGuardian

Urgent and accessible. It's also hard to argue with, and scary. Essential reading ahead of December's key UN Climate Change conferenceEvening Standard

Pretty essential if you want a sensible overview on what is happening to our planet―Time Out

An engrossing overview of the most urgent issue of the century―The Times
