Don't buy this book for yourself...,
This review is from: What's the Worst That Could Happen? (Paperback)
... buy it for someone else.
Buy it for your children, or for your grandchildren.
I've given What's the Worst That Could Happen? five stars. Full marks. But, Greg's book itself advises me to critically analyze my sources: excellent advice. It follows that since you (almost certainly) don't know me, my opinion shouldn't influence your decision whether to buy this book. So, perhaps I should just stop here.
If you're swayed by numbers, then I should point out that there are currently 33 reviews of this book over on Amazon.COM (see http://www.amazon.com/Whats-Worst-That-Could-Happen/product-reviews/B0030EG0NY/ref=dp_top_cm_cr_acr_txt?ie=UTF8&showViewpoints=1).
Having read Climate Cover-Up: The Crusade to Deny Global Warming it's clear that there are vested interests at work muddying the waters, discrediting science - as well as the scientists doing the science. It's hard work filtering out the sense from the nonsense. What's the Worst That Could Happen? has some very useful ideas in this regard.
If you do buy What's the Worst That Could Happen? for yourself, do us all a favour: don't let it sit on a bookshelf, time is too short for still more carbon to sit and slowly rot. Give it to someone else (and ask that person to read it -- or not -- but to pass it on in their turn, too).
If you do buy What's the Worst That Could Happen? for yourself, and you pass it on to someone else, and then a little later you feel like reading it again -- you could do worse than buying another copy...
... for someone else, naturally ;)
