Editorial Reviews

Review

"Dan Egan’s deeply researched and sharply written The Death and Life of The Great Lakes…nimbly splices together history, science, reporting and personal experiences into a taut and cautiously hopeful narrative…Egan’s book is bursting with life (and yes, death)."
Robert Moor, New York Times Book Review

"Engaging…[and] impeccably researched…Told like a great story rather than an academic lecture."
Anna M. Michalak, Nature

"Living up to . . . early acclaim, [The Death and Life of the Great Lakes] is easy to read, offering well-paced, intellectually stimulating arguments, bolstered by well-researched and captivating narratives."
Lekelia Danielle Jenkins, Science

"Fascinating and brilliant."
Vicky Albritton and Fredrik Albritton Jonsson, Los Angeles Review of Books

"This book feels urgent to policymakers and laypersons alike."
Kerri Arsenault, Literary Hub

"An accessible, even gripping narrative about the massive, unforeseen costs of our interventions in the natural world. . . . The Death and Life of the Great Lakes is an engaging, vitally important work of science journalism."
Eva Holland, The Globe and Mail

"The Death and Life of the Great Lakes reads like a mystery. . . . Egan knows how to pare a story to its most interesting elements. Having finished the book, I immediately started over."
Louise Erdrich

"Dan Egan has done more than any other journalist in America to chronicle the decline of this once-great ecosystem, to alert the public to new threats, and to force governments to take remedial action."
Grantham Prize for Excellence in Reporting on the Environment, Special Merit citation
