"McNall,...a sociologist with a long history of involvement in sustainability, has written the best book on climate change this reviewer has read....Most of the book explores the reasons individuals and society find it almost impossible to deal with this type of problem; a short exploration of possible solutions follows. The nine-page reference list and the 'glossary/index' are well done...suitable for all students; it could also serve as a good standing point for a graduate course on climate change. Summing up: Highly recommended. Lower-level undergraduates and above; general readers." ―CHOICE, October 2011, M. K. Cleaveland, University of Arkansas at Fayetteville, USA
