“A valuable and timely addition to climate psychology, a newly emerging field whose subject is how people are relating to climate change. The authors use qualitative research methods to explore people’s conscious - and not so conscious - feelings about climate change, with groups studied fascinatingly including climate scientists, activists and also children. I believe reading these papers helps us understand some of our own mixed and varied feelings about climate change. Paul Hoggett, in his introduction, usefully summarises the psycho-social approach taken by the authors and he clarifies differences in the qualitative research models they have developed and applied. The authors share in common a deep interest in peoples' subjective experience and a deep sympathy for the difficulty in facing climate change. A thoroughly good read, accessible and highly recommended.” (Sally Weintrobe, psychoanalyst, climate psychologist and editor of Engaging with Climate Change (2013))

It's true that the title is a little misleading, but the book itself is a much needed compilation of the state of current qualitative research (and a beacon leading us towards where psychologists can do more of it).

I feel unkind giving it only three stars because it covers a very important topic and does it pretty well but I wasted my money because of the misleading title and strapline.
