Product description

Review

"This is one of the grandest thought experiments of our time, a tremendous feat of imaginative reporting!" (Bill McKibben, author of The End of Nature)

"A powerful vision of a possible future for the earth" (Nick Rennison Sunday Times)

"flesh-creepingly good fun... an expert-led fantasia of the post-human planet... shamefully enjoyable" (Independent)

"Compelling... jammed packed with fascinating 'what ifs'" (Guardian)

"(a) tremendous work of popular (and I mean that in the best way) science ... an engrossing story that, whilst the stuff of fantasy, has roots in the environmental damage inflicted on the planet today." (Publishing News)

Book Description

A fascinating - and terrifying - glimpse of what the world would be like if humans disappeared today
