The Madhouse Effect delivers a strong, concise, and exceptionally clear version of the circus that has often surrounded public perceptions of climate change, never letting go of the scientific realities.
(David Eicher, Astronomy Magazine)
The Madhouse Effect is an entertaining and effective pitch to the vast of majority of citizens who have a vague sense of the problem, but need to be coaxed into learning more, and soon.
(Peter Dykstra, The Daily Climate)
The Madhouse Effect nails climate madness
(John Gibbons, Village Magazine)
The Madhouse Effect is a breezy, engaging read, interspersed with wry illustrations courtesy of cartoonist Tom Toles of The Washington Post.
(Dave Reay, Nature)
Concise and fiercely illustrated...[Toles] cartoons cut to the core of the issues that Mann untangles in the prose.
(Mark Fischetti, Scientific American)
For centuries, powerful forces of greed have tried to hide the truth, but that doesn't change reality―the earth is round and climate change is very real. The Madhouse Effect brilliantly dissects the climate denial industry, empowering all of us to see the facts and take action before it's too late. (Leonardo DiCaprio)
Michael E. Mann is one of the planet's great climate scientists, and Tom Toles may be the great climate communicator―together, they are a category 5 storm of information and indignation, wreaking humorous havoc on those who would deny the greatest challenge humans have ever faced. (Bill McKibben, founder of 350.org)
If you are not concerned about climate change yet, please read this book. If you are unaware of the hard-core deniers among us, read this book. If you are a climate change denier, doubter, techno-fixer, or luke-warmer, read this book. Mann and Toles have written some words and drawn some pictures for you, so maybe you'll get it this time. (Bill Nye, "the Science Guy")
When giving public talks, I am often asked, 'What do I do about my Uncle Joe, who doesn't believe in climate change?' Now I finally have an answer: Buy him a copy of The Madhouse Effect, and tell him you won't talk to him until he has read it. Even if he doesn't read it, he'll look at the pictures, and that might just be enough. (Naomi Oreskes, coauthor of The Collapse of Western Civilization: A View from the Future)
Brilliant, insightful, and fresh! Two gifted experts―one a scientist, the other an editorial cartoonist―invite you to be entertained and outraged, inspired and motivated to escape the madhouse that characterizes climate dialogue and politics today. New and hilarious insights into climate change. I loved it! (Jane Lubchenco, former administrator of NOAA and undersecretary of commerce for oceans and atmosphere)
Concise and fiercely illustrated. (Scientific American)
A breezy, engaging read.... If tackling climate change is indeed a war, then Mann and Toles have certainly earned their stripes. (Nature)
[A] brilliant, colorful escape hatch form the madhouse of the climate wars.... [The Madhouse Effect] may even convert die-hard doubters to the side of sound science. (Yale Climate Connections)
The best of both worlds: an illustrated compendium of horrifying science that also provides a few laughs. (Lit / Rant)
The award-winning climate scientist Michael E. Mann and the Pulitzer Prize–winning political cartoonist Tom Toles have been on the front lines of the fight against climate denialism for most of their careers. The Madhouse Effect portrays the intellectual pretzels into which denialists must twist logic to explain away the clear evidence that human activity has changed Earth's climate. The synergy of these two climate science crusaders enlivens the gloom and doom of so many climate-themed books.

The book covers all of the known research and information is a clear and concise manner. It is easily readable, and covers everything from why the earth is warming to what possible solutions exist that are practical. It also debunks the deniers and the information they use to try to confuse the issue. If you have doubts about climate science or global warming, this is an excellent book to read.
I highly recommend his book for those who are on the fence or who are willing to open their minds to new information. It might even be good for the member of the House of Representatives I heard recently say that he didn't believe climate science because they couldn't explain away past warming spells. Maybe I should send him this book!
An easy read for most readers.
