I've read lots of climate change books, and this one didn't appeal to me as the others have. I didn't get the sense of the overwhelming scale of the problem as I have in other books, or the feeling that we may actually be able to do something to avert the oncoming disaster. It reads as sort of a "state of the problem" dissertation, with litanies of evidence of global warming, and the political challenges posed against solving it. I'd recomment eaarth or The Weathermakers instead.
