Praise

"One of the best environmental books in recent years."
Time

"Hertsgaard’s focus is the human dimension to global ecological decline, and in Earth Odyssey he displays an authentic talent for storytelling . . . He has transformed a daunting subject into a stirring contribution to the growing literature on the global environment."
The New York Times Book Review

"Hertsgaard’s sharp reporting jolts us awake.  He has an acute eye for detail, an endless appetite for chitchat with locals, and a knack for tying his observations to his hefty background research . . . The result is a surprisingly fair-minded and therefore important book."
The Washington Post Book World

"There is a world of difference between knowing, in some abstract sense, that we face ‘environmental problems’ and having a gifted reporter show you the situation on the ground. Mark Hertsgaard has taken the planet for his beat, and he has delivered the goods
–Bill McKibben

"[An] intelligent and useful report on the environment."
The New Yorker
