I agree with Blumstein's review except I find this book repetitive and their arguments, although well supported by research, are undermined by the emotional tone of their rhetoric. The converted will agree, others may well be put off, which would be a shame.
This well research and referenced work written by scientists for laymen explains what is wrong with planet earth as a result of human activity. I found it a thoroughly absorbing read. It shows just how near we are to self extinction as a result of our own greed. Highly recommended.
