Reviews

"A heroic and important work " -- Bryan Appleyard Sunday Times "An excellent book... Vince writes with great freshness and vigour, and her stories are hard to stop reading" Daily Telegraph "It holds a mirror up to humanity and says: look what you have done to the world, the only world you will ever have... in every sense a good book, as well as a compelling read" Guardian "A masterpiece... a wondrous, remarkable, but heart-rending story" Ecologist "A masterpiece... a wondrous, remarkable, but heart-rending story" Ecologist "A story of optimism about how 10 billion people can in future live together and prosper... Fresh and unencumbered, Vince glides from ecology to economics, politics to philosophy, seeing it all through the people she meets" New Scientist "Ambitious and provocative... brilliant" -- Philip Hoare, author of LEVIATHAN and THE SEA INSIDE Literary Review "Vince's broader discussions of the biological and Earth science are as cogent as her close reportage" Nature "A beautifully human and optimistic book filled with stories of ordinary people who simply refuse to give up" -- Howard Falcon-Lang BBC Focus "A beautifully written book that raises the most profound question of our time: "How should we live?" In the past, this has been primarily a personal question. But, as Gaia Vince amply demonstrates, what was once a personal question has become the central question for us as a species -- and the fate of nearly every species on our planet (including our own) rests on our answer." -- Ken Caldeira, Professor of Environmental Earth Systems Sciences, Stanford University "A richly textured account of the post-wilderness years (and this year's winner of the Royal Society Winton Prize for Science Books)" -- Sumit Paul-Choudhury Literary Review "A richly textured account of the post-wilderness years (and this year's winner of the Royal Society Winton Prize for Science Books)" -- Sumit Paul-Choudhury Literary Review
