"In prose that is balefully evocative and irreducibly precise, Wright is in effect reading us our rights, giving us our options... This wise, timely and brilliant book will be a bulwark against the short-sighted and the self-interested, and may also ironically save them from themselves." The Globe and Mail; "[Ronald Wright] is a hard-nosed thinker, a literate and provocative presenter." - Winnipeg Free Press"
