4.0 out of 5 stars
All good stuff but read it all before......., 3 Mar. 2008
Difficult to rate this one. I would have to be five stars for anyone who has not read George's articles in the Guardian or on his website. But, being an avid Monbiot fan I was disappointed, having ordered a copy, to realise that it was just a collection of his articles (mostly weekly essays in the Guardian) which I'd already read. This wasn't clear in the blurb I'd read describing the book. But if you haven't read much (or any) of George's excellent writing prepare to learn and be challenged. His writing is vivid, radical and wide ranging.
