Praise

Praise for Under a White Sky

“Brilliantly executed and urgently necessary.”—Publishers Weekly (starred review)

Praise for The Sixth Extinction


“A wonderful book.”―President Barack Obama

“[Elizabeth Kolbert] can write with elegiac poetry about the vanishing creatures of this planet, but the real power of her book resides in the hard science and historical context she delivers here, documenting the mounting losses that human beings are leaving in their wake.”—Michiko Kakutani, The New York Times

“Beautifully written . . . an excellent book.”—Jon Stewart, The Daily Show

“Unlike a lot of people who write about the environment, Kolbert doesn’t resort to hype. She just lays out the facts and wraps them in memorable anecdotes. It’s a sobering but engaging and informative read.”—Bill Gates

“Riveting . . . It is not possible to overstate the importance of this book.”San Francisco Chronicle

“Your view of the world will be fundamentally changed. . . . Kolbert is an astute observer, excellent explainer and superb synthesizer, and even manages to find humor in her subject matter.”The Seattle Times

“Kolbert has established herself as one of our very best science writers. She has developed a distinctive and eloquent voice of conscience on issues arising from the extraordinary assault on the ecosphere. . . . The result is a clear and comprehensive history of earth’s previous mass extinctions—and the species we’ve lost—and an engaging description of the extraordinarily complex nature of life.”—Al Gore, The New York Times Book Review
