5.0 out of 5 stars Essential reading - exceptionally thought-provoking, 21 Oct. 2006
This book has been a revelation. It is remarkably well-written and argues cogently for a pro-active management of our planet and its resources. It has something of interest to all. It is broad-ranging, comprehensive, accessible and truly inspirational.

As a teacher, I would strongly recommend James Martin to any student preparing for A-levels or degree studies in Geography, Philosophy, Cultural studies, Environmental Studies, Business Studies and many other disciplines.

As a concerned member of the human race, I would hope that this book finds its way onto the desks of CEOs of multinational companies as well as presidents and prime ministers.

This book should determine the politics and economics of the next century. The book deals with the dangers we face as we navigate the 21st Century; global warming, terrorism, religious extremism, water-shortage, power-supply for an increasingly technology-dependent society.

If the warnings contained within are ignored we head towards a very dangerous period with little chance of survival; if heeded, we will equip ourselves with the right tools (economic, environmental, social and political) to improve our chances.
