Review

Walsh boldly strides into territory that no writer has been willing to go: directly linking Trump's administration with the demise of Planet Earth as we know it.-- "Hope Jahren, award-winning author of the New York Times Bestseller, Lab Girl"<br \><br \>Instead of freaking out, read End Times. It's a wise and weirdly hopeful journey into civilization's darkest nightmares.-- "Jeff Goodell, author of The Water Will Come"<br \><br \>It's not easy thinking about all the ways the world can end, let alone writing a whole book about them. But Bryan Walsh has managed the feat and then some, delivering a book that's as analytically astute as it is terrifically written. It takes a special kind of writer to pull this off, and in Bryan Walsh we found him.-- "Ian Bremmer, New York Times bestselling author of Us Versus Them: The Failure of Globalism"<br \><br \>In End Times, Bryan Walsh has put together the loudest, scariest wake-up call possible. And yet it's not a book without hope: Walsh lays out a challenging series of believable scenarios that can allow human beings to thrive along with our fellow earth-dwellers, in a way that requires only qualities we already have: compassion, intelligence, focus, and determination.-- "Mark Bittman, New York Times columnist and bestselling author"<br \><br \>Bryan Walsh has reported from the front lines of the 21st century's first pandemic and the backrooms of the war against climate change. He knows science, geopolitics and more. In End Times, he has put together an invaluable guide to living through the worst of times, and offers hope that we might just be able to survive them. --"Karl Taro Greenfeld, author of China Syndrome: The True Story of the 21st Century's First Great Epidemic"

We are all going to die, but never before have we been so likely to all do it at the same time. Beyond the alarm and the science, the nuclear showdowns and the climate disasters, rests the bigger question of how we humans contend with the impermanence of our own existence. Bryan Walsh's gripping thought experiment reminds us that the only truly permanent thing we humans can do is go extinct. --"Douglas Rushkoff, author of Present Shock: When Everything Happens Now"

It takes a bold reporter and subtle thinker to survey the mortal threats we face and find a way towards hope; yet that is what Bryan Walsh has done in this terrifying, fascinating exploration of existential risk. Cascading catastrophes of the manmade kind are so frightful to consider that we naturally look the other way; but Walsh invites us to reckon with the world we've made, a crucial step towards taking responsibility for saving us from ourselves. The asteroids, the supervolcanoes, the plagues are not of our making; but the nukes, the climate disruption, the weaponized pathogens and challenges of AI are. With a storyteller's art and a scientists tools, Walsh helps us think the unthinkable, takes us to the observatories and laboratories where the future is made. Travel with him to doomsday and back, and nothing looks the same. --"Nancy Gibbs, coauthor of New York Times bestseller The Presidents Club: Inside the World's Most Exclusive Fraternity"
