If you are interested in the subject and fed up with subjectivity and media hyperbole then this book is your best bet. As a non scientist I found it very readable and extremely informative.
The only criticism I have of the book is that occasionally it had some simplistic statements like 'stop flying', rather than more helpful and constructive advice on what to do if you have to fly (offsetting was pretty much dismissed and it is hard to see an alternative form of transport for essential journeys which cannot be done by train or in an economical car with three or more passengers).
Overall though I would thoroughly recommend this book to anyone who wants to inform themselves about the subject.
