Reviews

  • 'The Last Generation makes you feel that we know enough now to conceive of the problems ahead. And anticipating a problem is half way to being able to do something about it.' - James Flint, The Daily Telegraph.
  • 'This is the most frightening book that I have ever read...everyone should read this book to find out what is going wrong with the world.' - John Gribbin, The Independent.
  • 'One of Britain's finest science writers. He is a sceptic of the best sort, saying nothing until he has seen the truth of it for himself.' - Richard Girling, The Sunday Times.
  • 'A crystal clear wake-up call from one of the finest science writers in the world.' - Dr Jeremy Leggett.
