Product Details


“Hope Jahren asks the central question of our time: how can we learn to live on a finite planet? The Story of More is thoughtful, informative, and—above all—essential.”
—Elizabeth Kolbert, author of The Sixth Extinction

“A concise and personal yet universally applicable examination of a problem that affects everyone on planet Earth. . . . [Jahren] doesn’t use scare tactics or shrill warnings. . . . She clearly shows how the amount of waste created by the privileged could provide plenty for those less privileged.”
Kirkus Reviews

“Hope Jahren is an awesome writer and scientist. Her new book, The Story of More, is captivating and compelling. She urges readers to be courageous dealing with global environmental changes and human population growth.”
—Dudley Herschbach, Nobel Prize-winning chemist 

The Story of More is a superb account of the deadly struggle between humanity and what may prove the only life-bearing planet within ten light years, written in a brilliantly sardonic and conversational style.”
—E. O. Wilson
