'Radical. Will outrage many readers’ Independent
'Wonderfully sane and cogent’ Guardian
‘Mark Lynas is one of a growing band of influential figures, along with James Lovelock, Stewart Brand and George Monbiot, who now argue that the approach of most Greens to climate change needs to change… He is wonderfully sane and cogent on difficult issues… He has written the clearest exposition so far of the choices facing us. We may wince at the book's title (it derives from Stewart Brand's remark: "We are as gods and have to get good at it"), but Lynas is not playing God, simply making a passionate pitch for good global resource management.’ Peter Forbes, Guardian
‘An intriguing thesis and Lynas outlines it with clarity and panache’ Observer
‘Planetary boundaries richly merit a popular treatment, and The God Species taps their potential to offer a sharply focused vision of planetary dynamics that goes beyond warming and extinctions.’ Financial Times
‘The power of Lynas’s voice comes not just from his deep research but also his authority as a campaigner’ Sunday Times
‘This is a clear-eyed, hard-headed assessment of the ecological challenges facing us – and all the more bracing for it’ Evening Standard
‘Before reading this book, worrying about biodiversity had seemed a chattering class luxury to me’. Independent, Book of the Week
‘A redemptive manifesto for humanity’ New Scientist

Mr. Lynas like to bring forward ideas and theories as if they are facts set in stone. Once the reader has taken on-board his point of view then his conclusions make sense. Read morePublished on 29 Dec. 2013 by Shug
Lynas has recently destroyed my trust in his research and the value of his thoughts. If he can flip flop so greatly on subjects that he has written about before, he obviously has... Read morePublished on 17 Jan. 2013 by R geist
It is very unfortunate that Mark Lynas has allowed this book to be marketed as an attack on conventional thinking on the environment. Read morePublished on 4 Jan. 2013 by Martin Lack
