Product description


McKibben has proven to be one of the most accessible voices in the fight for a more sustainable planet. In Oil and Honey, the author extends his approach and message by meshing the global with the personal.... Throughout the book, his most readable yet, McKibben is simultaneously authoritative and conversational.--The Boston Globe. Bill McKibben these days is something of a rock Tracking the emotional and intellectual journey that took McKibben from Vermont to picket lines in Washington, D.C. to town halls, universities, and arenas, the book is a call to action and an inspiring playbook for making change--both locally and globally--in the 21st century.--Publishers Weekly. Confiding and dramatic . . . In this moving, wryly amusing account set against the heated presidential debate of 2012, McKibben describes his extraordinary world travels and what it took to launch gutsy, creative, and effective protests, and shares invaluable information and such intriguing insights as what bees can teach us about reaching consensus. Galvanizing and inspiring.--Booklist (starred review)From the founder of the environmental organization, a chatty, warm memoir of his double life as globe-trotting activist and part-time novice beekeeper...A personal, enjoyably rancor-free account, filled with praise for his colleagues and some pokes at opponents but void of harangues.--Kirkus Reviews. In this elegant and deeply inspiring book, Bill McKibben has given us something remarkable: a front row seat in the global battle against the fossil companies that are wrecking the planet, and an intimate glimpse into the intensely local life and landscape for which McKibben himself is fighting. This is the balance--between big and small, between rage and love, between resistance and alternatives--that we all must find if we are to transform in time to prevent catastrophe. A gift.Naomi Klein, author of The Shock Doctrine --Various
