Well-documented and terrifying review of the scientific evidence supporting claims that Earth teeters on the edge of a climatic precipice . . . Important reading for policymakers, climate-change skeptics and anyone planning a future beyond the next decade. —Kirkus Reviews, starred review

“[Pearce’s] grasp of [scientists’] work is exceptional. What’s more, he has a talent for explaining science in terms understandable to the nonscientist . . . This enjoyable read was difficult to put down.” —Library Journal, starred review

“If you want to quickly get up to date on climate change and its consequences, I recommend With Speed and Violence. If you can read only one book on climate change, this is it.”—Lester Brown, president, Earth Policy Institute
