Editorial Reviews

Review

"Refreshingly unpolemical and at times even witty, McNeill's book brims with carefully sifted statistics and brilliant details." ― Washington Post

"A monumental, important, and timely work of interdisciplinary scholarship, written to be accessible to anyone interested in the relationship between our species and the planet that supports us." -- Chris Lavers ― The Guardian

"This scientifically informed survey makes a useful resource for environmentalists, scholars, globalists, biologists, policy makers and concerned readers." ― Publishers Weekly
