Editorial Reviews

Review

“Penetrating and engrossing . . . a captivating, essential book to add to the necessarily burgeoning literature on global warming.”Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

“Deeply engrossing and enlightening”
Booklist (starred review)

The Ice at the End of the World is a masterpiece of reportage and storytelling. What Gertner has found on Greenland’s remote glaciers is a harrowing tale of extremity and survival, as well as a harbinger of our own precarious future here on earth. Equal parts science, adventure, and history, this important book is a revelation, one that lingered for me long after turning the last page.”—Michael Paterniti, author of The Telling Room
 
“Jon Gertner guides us on a perilous and fascinating journey to the remote island that lies at the epicenter of our understanding of climate change. With compelling prose and lucid scientific explanation, he tracks the explorers and scientists who, over two centuries, have tried to fathom the immensity and mysteries of Greenland’s inland ice. Both enlightening and disturbing,
The Ice at the End of the World takes us on a gripping adventure into the thawing heart of global warming.”—Peter Stark, author of Astoria
