Review


"Arresting and disturbing . . . Lovelock writes wonderfully well. With the authority of age, his voice is that of an elder statesman . . . The result is mellifluous and fluent." --"Nature"
"Though the subject matter could scarcely be more discouraging, Lovelock's fluent prose and vast range of knowledge make it a surprisingly easy read. . . . His writing has enormous warmth and vitality." --"Financial Times"
"The most important book for me this year . . . Lovelock is the most prescient of scientists. . . . He has given us a handbook for human survival." --John Gray, "The Guardian
""In this way, Lovelock's book becomes not simply another look at Mother Nature's uncertain future, but a revealing glimpse at the life of an outspoken and accomplished man of ideas" --"Publishers Weekly"
