Praise

“Riveting . . . [Brockovich] shares personal anecdotes in addition to providing specific steps to assist readers in pursuit of their own community actions . . . Superman’s Not Coming will resonate strongly with anyone concerned about this important topic.”
Booklist (starred review)

“Two decades after the movie that made her a national celebrity, Brockovich urges readers to confront a scary reality . . . [She] offers an easy-to-understand guide to common water pollutants, and she shares stories of citizen activists . . . The narrative’s real power comes from her clarion calls to regular citizens to get involved in the fight for safe water . . . she offers several concrete suggestions for how people can gauge the safety of their own drinking water and stand up to corporations and politicians . . . a call to arms about the global water crisis from a sharp, plainspoken activist.”
